Gas reciprocating genset MTU 16V4000L33 is necessary then the consumer has s dynamic electric load. Dynamic characteristics of gas reciprocating engine depend on joint work of internal parts of the genset. In MTU 16V4000L33 you can find several technological solutions for it:
- Detonation control system guaranties safety work on gas fuel with low methane value;
- Modernized single stage turbocharger increases workability of the equipment during high compression ratio and increases rated power per cylinder;
- Geared V-like gas reciprocating engine with camber angle of 90 degrees with 16 cylinders perfectly combines capacity and rotation speed of crank-shaft.
All these design features allow to reduce recovery time after load jumps.
Due to high load steps (to 30%) power centers on MTU 16V4000L33 shows good operation characteristics. This genset is widely used as a part of autonomous power centers (on-site generation) working in island mode. Servicing staff says that power plants with MTU 16V4000L33 regardless its total capacity can function as one energy object – without load jumps, gaps and steps during start. In other words, even sufficient change of load would not bother the consumer.
It is worth mentioning that all gensets of 4000 series have the same SPTA base. It facilitates maintenance and service of the equipment.
Generally, servicing scheme for MTU equipment supposes preventive actions. Preventive service ensures high reliability of the equipment and prolongs its operation life.
