Advantages of Caterpillar DE550E0 Diesel GenSet

  • High power generation efficiency: The power generation efficiency of CAT Caterpillar gas-fired internal combustion generator sets is about 33 – 41 %, and the efficiency of combined heat, power and cooling can reach more than 80 %.

  • Low requirements for gas source: The gas internal combustion generator set has low requirements on the intake pressure (medium and low pressure) and intake temperature of the gas source, and has a wide range of calorific value.

  • Wide range of power used: Caterpillar gas internal combustion generator sets have a power range of 80 to 3480 kW, which can operate as a single unit or in parallel with multiple units, grid-connected operation, and flexible station construction.

  • Wide range of adaptation to ambient temperature and altitude. At an ambient temperature of 40 degrees Celsius and an altitude of 500 meters, the rated power of the Caterpillar gas-fired internal combustion generator set is not compromised, and it can output 100 %.
