Moss Energy provides a complete line of single or multi-stage steam turbines to fit most all applications. Our systems range in size from 100 KW through 20 MW and are provided with synchronous or induction generators complete with controls to meet your utilities requirements. The systems can be used to replace a pressure reducing station or can be installed with air or water cooled condensers. In either application, the steam from your boiler plant can be used to produce electricity without affecting your process. Since we have a non—exclusive relationship with turbine manufacturers, we have total flexibility to provide the best steam turbine system for your application.

One of the most important decisions an owner has to make is whether to install a synchronous or induction generator. In order to make this decision, the owner must decide if the facility should stand alone from the utility, determine what the overall cost of the facility will be versus the payback, what are the local utility requirements, etc.

A synchronous generator provides more flexibility but generally cost more than an induction system. This generator requires different controls from induction systems and allows the plant to operate with or without the utility and can provide 100% of the plant load plus any extra KW that can be sold back to the utility.

An induction generator is basically a special motor that receives its excitation from the utility and should not produce more than approximately one -third of the power required for the plant to operate. Induction systems below 700 KW cost less than synchronous system and cannot be used in a stand alone application.
