With low emissions and product flexibility, these power generators serve a diverse group of applications in a wide variety of operating conditions. Our consultative approach coupled with our technological advantages help users configure the best possible clean power generation system for the money.

Technology

Fuel cells. They are the technology at the core of the Special Power Sources RP Series of generators. And fuel cells are considered by experts and government agencies to be an important technology to meet current and future expanded requirements for clean, efficient power.

The Science Of Fuel Cell Technology

Fuel cells have the potential to convert fuel into electricity at much higher efficiencies than even the most modern conventional power plants. And they do so with almost no emissions of criteria pollutants. A physical law called the Carnot efficiency limits the efficiency of any heat engine. This sets an upper bound based on the difference between the peak temperature inside the engine and the temperature of the surroundings. Power plants get more efficient by increasing peak temperature. The result of that is an increased amount of nitrogen oxides produced that must be controlled.

Fuel Cells – Clean And Efficient

Fuel cells, including Special Power Sources, do not operate at temperatures where nitrogen oxides are formed. Because fuel cells are not bound by the theoretical limit of Carnot efficiency, they could achieve over 70% efficiency, making fuel cell technology clean and efficient.

Advanced R&D

Special Power Sources has a Research & Development (R&D) Group that is dedicated to developing new programs that expand the use of our existing products or that require enhancements of existing features or functionality. One example of a program we are currently working on is the development of a power generation system that operates on alternate fuels such as ultra-low sulfur diesel, biodiesel or military logistics fuel (JP-8). The Special Power Sources R&D Group also performs research into developing new, innovative energy technologies with the goal of commercializing the technology into use by the broader market. Many of these programs and research projects are joint development efforts funded in part by government, military and private industry organizations.
