Abstract

This report describes the tests conducted to determine the behavior of two Capstone 30 kW microturbines connected in parallel with some impedance between them. This test was meant to simulate the operation of two microturbines at nearby customer facilities. This arrangement also constitutes a simple microgrid. The goal of this test was to investigate if any voltage and power instabilities exist between the two microturbines.
