Magnetic Bearing and Generator Solutions For Renewable and Recoverable Energy
The rising cost of energy coupled with the harmful environmental effects of electric power production have placed increased emphasis on harnessing renewable sources of energy and improving the utilization of existing sources of energy. Synchrony’s products offer clean, efficient, and reliable solutions for renewable and recoverable energy.
To produce electric power, process gas is expanded in a turbine, which drives a NovaGen® high efficiency generator with integrated controls. Magnetic bearings ensure that friction losses are low, toxic oil lubricants are eliminated, and reliability is high. Some applications are:
- Energy recovery from pressure let-down systems (e.g., steam and natural gas)
- Geothermal power generation
- Solar power generation
