Performance

Installation of a Bi-Fuel System in no way compromises the performance of the generator relative to the rated load of the machine. A generator with a 1000 kW stand-by rating which has been retrofitted to the GTI Bi-Fuel System will still provide 1000 kW of power in both 100% diesel and bi-fuel modes. In other words, the generator is not de-rated after installation of the Bi-Fuel System. Similarly, there is no decrease in generator load response or stability while operating in either fuel mode.

After installation of the GTI Bi-Fuel System hardware, the generator is then operated under various load settings (normally with the use of a resistive load bank) while the System is checked and calibrated. After this "tune-in" process is completed, the generator is fully tested in bi-fuel mode to assure proper operation of the GTI Bi-Fuel System and generator during light, medium, heavy and transient loads. Finally, the generator is tested in 100% diesel mode to verify that its 100% diesel performance has not been affected by installation of the GTI Bi-Fuel System.
