Cummins PowerHour: Considerations for Specifying Generator Set Fuel Sources (1PDH)
The installation of gaseous generator sets in a wide variety of applications continues to rise in North America while facility performance requirements, codes and standards are often most closely linked to their traditional diesel counterpart. As natural gas and propane fueled generator sets reach the market with “diesel-like” performance, it’s critical to understand how best to apply these products in order to maximize the value they provide. This course will provide an overview of gaseous generator set capabilities in various applications and will empower participants to recognize how to best apply gaseous generator sets to meet common performance and code requirements.
After completing this course, participants will be able to:
- Recognize performance requirements applicable to both diesel and gaseous generator sets.
- Describe key features and capabilities of gaseous generator sets.
- List key considerations unique to gaseous generator set installation.
