400kW – 1.2MW High Speed Permanent Magnet Generators and Grid-Tied Inverters

For Waste Heat Recovery & Organic Rankine Cycle Applications


Waste Heat is the World’s most cost effective un-tapped renewable energy source where 90% waste heat stream is in less than 1MW range. Waste Heat Recovery (WHR) can be interpreted as recovery of rejected heat, typically from a facility or plant into the surrounding environment. The Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) is named for its use of an organic, high molecular mass fluid with a liquid-vapour phase change, or boiling point, occurring at a lower temperature than the water-steam phase change. This fluid allows Rankine Cycle heat recovery from lower temperature sources. TPS’ range of unique High Speed Generator and Inverter solutions enable highest efficiency recovery of this rejected heat as part of the WHR/ORC system, in order to reduce energy costs and improve profitability whilst providing a source of power with lowest carbon footprint.

Utilising a Permanent Magnet design with a carbon fibre retaining system, TPS Generators are designed to operate reliably when directly coupled to a turbine engine. The Generators employ active magnetic bearings to eliminate wear and thus provide maintenance free operation of the rotating machinery. The connection is made to the turbine using an infinite life flexible disk element coupling and a torque tube to provide accurate alignment. The output from the Generator is transferred to the grid via a Grid-Tied Inverter to provide mains quality electricity. TPS have the capability to develop a wide range of Grid-Tied Inverters to suit your individual plant needs. In addition, all necessary protections and filters are included to achieve a one box “Plug & Play” approach. There is a flexible range of control and monitoring options to achieve full turbine integration and its remote programming aids setup and upgrades. Furthermore, the advanced Smart Grid power control will help achieve the low carbon world vision.
