Natural Gas Engines as Prime Movers for Air Conditioning 640258
This report discusses the application and rating factors responsible for the high energy conversion efficiency of the natural gas engine which makes the low operational costs possible. Two major factors determining size of engine are the amount of horsepower needed and the environment in which the engine will be working. Although shaft power from natural gas engines can economically drive air conditioning compressors, efficiency can be increased through recovery of rejected engine heat that is alternately used by devices such as compressors and generators.
