LNG Capstone microturbines that were
installed in May will operate in an N+ 1
setting for main power supply onboard.
Heat from the microturbine exhaust
will be used in an LNG vaporizer to
provide fuel to the microturbine as well
as the main propulsion engines.
applications and the charge inlet is
a vehicle-side interface that mates
to a charging connector to accommodate Level 1 and Level 2 charging
of plug-in hybrid-electric vehicles and
battery-electric vehicles. Delphi also
began selling the previously evaluated UL-listed portable electric vehicle
charger earlier this year.

Capstone Microturbines are used in
a variety of distributed power generation applications that include cogen-eration and trigeneration resource
recovery, secure power and hybrid-electric vehicles (HEVs). New products include the C500 HE system, the
Capstone Clean Cycle, and expansion of Capstone’s mobile products
applications with the installation of
C30 and C65 microturbine control
systems in vessels.
Capstone Turbine Corp. has
received another order for 22 C65
microturbines from an independent oil
and natural gas company sold by its
distributor, Pumps & Service. This latest order for Capstone is the second
such follow-on order to the first 18
unit C65 order received last August.
All three orders are for Capstone C65
natural gas products and together
total 64 units in nine months. The
22 low-emissions C65 microturbines
will provide prime power to central
processing facilities and metering stations at remote well sites in the Eagle
Ford shale play in south Texas.
Capstone has expanded its marine
presence with an order for two C30
LNG microturbines that will be installed
on a Type C Tanker for inland shipping and will be certified by Lloyds
Register of Shipping. The two C30

Delphi produces a range of standard or customized electrical/elec-tronic architecture systems and components for high-power, high-voltage
applications. Systems include technologies specific for battery-powered
transportation, including harness protection systems such as bent aluminum tubes or molded channels,
battery monitoring devices, plug-in
charging and a new series of connection systems that incorporate the
shielding, sealing and high-voltage
safety interconnects required for high-voltage/high-power applications.
Through its Packard Electrical/
Electronic Architecture division, Delphi
Automotive has completed the evaluation of its electric vehicle charge coupler with cable and charge inlet under
the Underwriters Laboratories Inc.’s
Component Recognition Program.
The UL components are now available for use in charging stations and
vehicle-side charging applications in
the U.S. and Canada.
Delphi’s charge coupler with cable
is suitable for stationary charging
The wireless charging system from Delphi
can be used on a wide range of vehicle
shapes and sizes.
The company has also recently
introduced a wireless charging system for integration on an all-electric
THINK City test vehicle to provide
an efficient wireless energy transfer
system. The system uses technology developed by WiTricity Corp. and
eliminates the charging cord.
Drivers park their electric vehicle
over a wireless energy source situated on the floor or embedded in
a paved parking spot. The wireless charging system uses a highly
resonant magnetic coupling that is
designed to transfer power over a
significantly larger distance and can
adapt to natural misalignment often
associated with vehicle positioning
during parking, Delphi said. This is
designed to allow the charging source
to be buried in pavement and to be
unaffected by environmental factors
such as snow, ice or rain. The unit
can also accommodate a wide range
of vehicle shapes and sizes and their
differing ground clearances.
According to Delphi, the charging
system will automatically transfer
power to the electric vehicle’s battery pack at a rate of 3. 3 k W, which
is the same rate as most residential
