Section 2: INTRODUCTION TO SABAH GAS TERMINAL
Sabah Gas Onshore Terminal (SBGAST) is located at Kg. Gayang, around 50 km north east of Kota Kinabalu. The installations are sited on 20 hectares of costal land, conveniently accessible by road. Natural gas is piped through a 16” subsea pipeline to SBGAST from Erb-West Platform, located 65 km offshore. Sabah Gas Onshore Terminal (SBGAST) is design to process 150 mmscfd of raw gas. Product gas will pipe directly to consumers and the condensate is exported by road tankers.
Section 3: SABAH GAS TERMINAL POWER DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM
Section 3.1: Existing Electrical System Configuration:
There is no external electrical grid power supply such as SESB/TNB connection to Sabah Gas Terminal. All electrical generations are independent from the Micro Turbine Generators (MTG -501 to MTG-508) or Diesel Engine Generator (GD-7500). During the observation at site, there was an additional rental portable generator for back up. There are eight units of Micro Turbine Generators (MTG) rated at 60 kW each installed in Micro Turbine shed. One unit of 1250 kVA Diesel Engine Generator is installed in their respective sheds. All generators are connected to MCC-7600. Section 3.2: Electrical System Operation Regime:
The operating philosophy for the MTGs are on 6 + 2 basis in which 6 are running and 2 are on stand-by at any time. In the event of MTG unavailable (under maintenance or repair), the Diesel Engine Generator (DEG) or rated Portable Engine Generator (PDG) shall be put into operation to make up the difference.
Section 4: PROBLEM STATEMENT
MicroTurbine Generators (MTG) are the main power generator to supply the whole area of SBGAST. They have a total of 8 generators altogether. Each generator only generates up to 60 kW of power. Therefore in this project I am asked to study about the power generated and how is it distributed throughout the whole area in SBGAST itself. Section 5: METHODOLOGY: ABOUT MICROTURBINE GENERATORS
Section 5.1: Introduction
The Capstone C60 MicroTurbine provides electrical power generation. The Capstones C60 MicroTurbine may be configured for either Grid Connect or Stand Alone operation. The Grid Connect configure causes the MicroTurbine to source current into an energized electrical grid, and the Stand Alone configuration allows the MicroTurbine to function as a grid-isolated voltage source. Capstone C60 MicroTurbines may be used in applications requiring greater than 60 kW of required amount of power. A MultiPac grouping of MicroTurbines will function as if it were a single unit. Section 5.2: Purpose
The purpose of this section is to define the electrical performance ratings of the Capstone C60 MicroTurbine in both single unit and MultiPac configurations. This information is intended for use in the evaluations of applications for the Capstones C60 Microturbine. Section 5.3: Scope
This section defines only the electrical ratings and characteristics of the CapStone C60 MicroTurbine single unit and MultiPac. Other documentation is available for defining the ratings and characteristics of the other various MicroTurbine components.

Section 5.5.1: Power
The CPC-100 requires 9 to 30 VDC. The power may be derived from the MicroTurbine or an external DC supply.
Section 5.5.2: Nominal Net Power Output, Efficiency, and Other Parameter Values Calculation
In order to calculate the expected net power output, proceed as follows:
* Look up the estimated power using Temperature Derating table. * Subtract parasitic loads (Fuel Gas Booster, Battery charging). * Apply ambient Pressure/Elevation Derating
* Apply Back Pressure Derating
* Apply Inlet Pressure Loss Derating.
C60 Grid Connect, 4.5 kW loss from Fuel Gas Booster, ambient temperature of 75 °F,and 800 ft. above sea level.
Power based on temperature = 60.0 kW
Fuel Gas Booster Loss = 4.5 kW
Elevation Derating = 0.971
Expected Power = (60-4.5) x 0.971 = 53.89 kW
Nominal net power output and efficiency versus ambient temperature at sea level for the Model C60 MicroTurbine operating on high-pressure natural gas (B Range) fuel is presented in Table 3. These values are estimated from nominal performance curves.

Temperature Derating (continued)
Nominal net power output and efficiency versus ambient temperature at sea level for the Model C60 MicroTurbine operating on natural gas (B range) fuel is presented in Figure 1.
Figure 3: Nominal Net Power Output and Efficiency versus Ambient Temperature at Sea level Section 5.6: Electrical Connections: Stand Alone
If the Capstone MicroTurbine is equipped with the Stand Alone option, the operator must supply the electrical cable and switchgear through which the Capstone MicroTurbine delivers its output power. The cabling and switchgear must be capable of safely handling the maximum potential loads, and must meet all applicable local and national regulations. It is essential that the owner/user consult all of the applicable codes and standards before electrically wiring the MicroTurbine. A qualified electrician may be required to do the work. The electrical connection terminal block for the MicroTurbine can be found in the Power Bay located at the rear of the enclosure.
Section 5.6.1: Stand Alone Loads
Stand Alone loads may be connected in any combination of line-line or line-neutral, while respecting the maximum current and voltage ratings as described in the Model C30 Electrical Technical Reference (410000) and the Model C60 Electrical Technical Reference (410001). Notice that in Stand Alone systems, the MicroTurbine(s) neutral must be solidly connected to ground at a single point.
Section 5.6.2: Voltage
The output voltage from the MicroTurbine may be programmed from 150 to 480 volts AC, phase-to-phase, and 10 to 60 Hz. Output power capabilities are reduced at the lower voltage levels, based on the operational current limits.
Section 5.6.3: Phase Rotation
The output voltage/current phase rotation is counterclockwise, as in L1 to L2 to L3. Notice that improper phase rotation connections can damage the connected loads. Capstone cannot be held responsible for equipment damage caused by improper connections. It is the operator’s responsibility to verify the proper phase connections between the MicroTurbine and the load(s).
Section 5.6.4: Stand Alone Transformer Applications
For Stand Alone applications, power transformer(s) will be needed for loads that require voltages different from the programmed MicroTurbine Stand Alone voltage set point. Refer to the Stand Alone Operation Technical Reference (410028) for details on the voltage and protective set points used for Stand Alone operation.
Section 5.6.5: Load Circuits
The MicroTurbine output consists of three phases and a neutral circuit. These may be used in any combination, limited only by current limits on each phase, as described in the Model C30 Electrical Technical Reference (410000) and the Model C60 Electrical Technical Reference (410001).
The nominal Stand Alone voltage setting is available between any two phases. Single phase and/or unbalanced loads can be accommodated, respecting the current and power limits previously noted. Notice that the MicroTurbine
Neutral must always be grounded. Section 5.6.6: Load Capacity
The MicroTurbine output is current limited. The MicroTurbine can operate loads with any power factor, so long as current limits are not exceeded. The current (I) consumed by the load(s) is a function of real power (Watts), volts (V) and the power factor (PF). I= W3×V ×PF
The allowable power factor (PF) will be a function of the real load and the maximum phase current. Power derating curves for ambient temperature and elevation should be considered when determining real power (Watts). Refer to the Model C30 Performance Technical Reference (410004) and to the Model C60 Performance Technical Reference (410005) for additional details. For example, with a total 30 kW load operating at 480 Volts AC with a current limit of 46 ARMS per phase, the lowest allowable power factor (PF) is as follows: 300003×480 ×46=0.78
Operating at 376 volts AC, the lowest allowable power factor (PF) is as follows:
Operating voltages lower than 376 volts AC will consequently reduce the total available output power of the MicroTurbine according to the following: W = 46× 3 ×V × PF
Section 5.6.7: Input Impedance Calculations – Examples
Refer to the Model C30 Electrical Technical Reference (410000) and the Model C60 Electrical Technical Reference (410001) for input impedance requirements. Three examples of the total electrical input impedance calculations which detail the values considering the MicroTurbine output looking towards the utility are provided as follows:
Example 1: Model C30 – Considering 1 MicroTurbine
Total Impedance for all conductors: ZL = 0.5%, ZR = 1.0%
ZL (Total) = 5.6%(30/45) + 6.4%(30/45) + 5%(30/60) + 0.5% = 11% (Value exceeds acceptable limits)
ZR (Total) = 1.7%(30/45) + 1.9%(30/45) + 1.6%(30/60) + 1% = 4.22% (Value is within acceptable limits)
Example 2: Model C60 – Considering 1 MicroTurbine
Total Impedance for all conductors: ZL = 0.5%, ZR = 1.0%
ZL (Total) = 5.6%(60/75) + 6.4%(60/75) + 5%(60/100) + 0.5% = 13.1% (Value exceeds acceptable limits)
ZR (Total) = 1.7%(60/75) + 1.9%(60/75) + 1.6%(60/100) + 1% = 4.85% (Value is within acceptable limits)
Example 3: Considering 3 MicroTurbines
Total Impedance for all conductors: ZL = 0.5%, ZR = 1.0
MicroTurbine #1 (30 kVA):
ZL (MT1) = 5.6%(30/45) + 7.2%(120/500) + 5%(120/2000) + 0.5% = 6.3% (Value is within acceptable limits)
Note: In these calculations, the number 120 represents the sum of the MicroTurbine outputs (30+30+60) ZR (MT1) = 1.7%(30/45) + 1.8%(120/500) + 1.3%(120/2000) + 1% = 2.7% (Value is within acceptable limits)
MicroTurbine #2 (30 kVA):
ZL (MT2) = 5.6%(30/45) + 7.2%(120/500) + 5%(120/2000) + 0.5% = 6.3% (Value is within acceptable limits)
ZR (MT2) = 1.7%(30/45) + 1.8%(120/500) + 1.3%(120/2000) + 1% = 2.7% (Value is within acceptable limits)
MicroTurbine #3 (60 kVA):
ZL (MT3) = 4.3%(60/112.5) + 7.2%(120/500) + 5%(120/2000) + 0.5%= 4.9% (Value is within acceptable limits)
ZR (MT3) = 1.4%(60/112.5) + 1.8%(120/500) + 1.3%(120/2000) + 1%= 2.3% (Value is within acceptable limits)

Section 7 – Conclusion
From the tabulated data, it shows that SBGAST normal total power consumption is in the range of 200kW up till 300kW per day. Power consumption for the Fire Water Pump is excluded since it is only being used once in a week to test-drive the Fire Water Pump. If the Fire Water Pump is included, the total power consumed is about 435kW at the time when the Fire Water Pump is operating. A similar peak in electrical consumption is also observed during air compressor switchover activities. Each MTG only produces power up till 60kW per generator and the efficiency of the generator is 70% of its maximum power produced. So, the total power of combined 6 MTGs (based on operating philosophy of 6 + 2) is approximately 360 kW (running full load). Even if all of the MTG is operating at one time, the total power produced is 364kW with an efficiency of 70%. This shows that on normal basis, the power generated is sufficient but on emergency case or for any future upgrading, 6 MTGs will not be enough to adequate the whole area of SBGAST. Furthermore, for the Fire Water Pump to operate, the starting point of its generator needs 3 times more power than the normal operating point.
Section 8 Recommendation
It is highly recommended to review SBGAST Consumption in account to normal and abnormal situation to determine whether the existing power generator is adequate enough or not. This will determine whether or not SBGAST needs to upgrade or replace its existing generator or operating philosophy.
