ACF Standby Systems’ Generac Bi-Fuel Solutions

main Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014 No Comments

Let’s face it, there are several good reasons to equip your business with a bi-fuel generator solution for emergency backup power.

Bi-fuel generators capitalize on reliability. They share the benefits of both diesel and natural gas fuel while minimizing each of their drawbacks. It is true that the initial bi-fuel generator investment is typically 15% to 30% higher, but this cost is offset because the less expensive natural gas is the predominant fuel.

Since natural gas is the predominant fuel in a bi-fuel generator, running times are extended and on-site fuel storage requirements (along with storage maintenance costs) is decreased.

A More Reliable Solution

Because on-site fuel remains part of the system, reliability is improved. Should the natural gas supply fail for whatever reason, the generator can run on 100% diesel.

Enjoy Lower Total Cost of Ownership

Because natural gas costs less than diesel, fuel costs are significantly reduced over the long term. And since less on-site diesel fuel is required for long running times, installation, operational and maintenance costs are reduced.

Risk Mitigation via Fuel Redundancy

Despite the perceived reliability of on-site diesel fuel, power outages can damage infrastructure and make diesel refueling difficult or impossible. Generac Bi-Fuel generators mitigate refueling issues by operating primarily on utility-supplied natural gas. That means less on-site diesel fuel is required and running times will be greatly extended compared to diesel-only solutions. And because the natural gas infrastructure tends not to be affected by the same conditions that lead to power outages, fuel reliability is improved.

Scalability as Part of a Modular Power System

Generac Bi-Fuel generators can be configured as part of a Modular Power System (MPS)—connected via integrated paralleling with other Generac generators. This makes the system scalable, meaning there is no need to install more power than you need.

Code Compliance

Generac Bi-Fuel generators meet the on-site fuel requirements for emergency systems as referenced in NEC700 and NFPA 110. Less on-site diesel fuel means easier permitting. And indoor fuel installations with capacity limits per NFPA or local codes become a viable option.

Reduced Exhaust Emissions

Bi-fuel generators are cleaner and more environmentally friendly than diesel-only generators. They emit about 30% less nitrogen oxides and 50% less particulate matter than comparable diesel-only units.

Fully Integrated Solution

Generac’s Bi-Fuel generators are fully integrated solutions, not after-market conversions in the field. That means every component is specifically designed, engineered, and factory validated to work together. Generac Bi-Fuel generators have the added benefit of being EPA compliant from the factory—the only bi-fuel systems on the market that can make such a claim.

Let ACF Standby Systems and Generac Meet Your Data Center’s Mission Critical Power Requirements

main Tuesday, September 16th, 2014 No Comments

IDL TIFF file

ACF Standby Systems is proud to announce that Generac now offers a “Mission Critical Continuous” rating to clarify their compliance to the Uptime Institute’s requirements for data centers.

 

We are Generac’s Industrial Distributor in central and northern Florida and are standing by to meet all your backup power needs.

It is common for Data centers to often seek third-party certification from the Uptime Institute for use in their marketing. The Uptime Institute is a data center research, education and consulting organization. Our standby generator supplier Generac offers a “Mission Critical Continuous” rating to clarify their compliance to the Uptime Institute’s requirements for data centers.

To meet the most rigorous levels of requirements – Tier III and Tier IV – diesel generators are considered the primary source of power, not the utility. This means the engine-generator system must be scaled to carry the entire load of the data center, providing constant power with no runtime limit. We can supply a Generac Industrial generator Set that is compliant with these requirements.

We frequently hear that generators must have a continuous rating to qualify for Tier III and Tier IV data center projects. That requirement is typically driven by a miscommunication from the building owner or architect who references the Uptime Institute’s guideline for Tier compliance.

Generator rating definitions are provided by the International Standards Organization (ISO) under category 8528. ISO defines three principal power ratings:

  • Continuous Power (COP) The rating definition for COP is “Constant load: Unlimited running hours.” This rating applies to a generator set paralleled with an infinite bus (e.g. a national electric supply network or grid) where the generator set must run at 100% load, 24 hours a day.
  • Prime Power (PRP) The ISO PRP definition is “Variable load: Unlimited running hours.” This rating pertains to applications where no supply network or grid is available and the generator set is used to supply power 24/7.
  • Emergency Standby Power (ESP) The ISO ESP definition is “Variable load: Limited to 500 hours per year.” This rating is suitable for classic standby power applications.

ACF Standby Systems’ genset supplier Generac satisfy all the ISO ratings, including ISO COP.

While the Uptime Institute references the ISO definitions, they do not require Tier III and Tier IV facilities to use ISO continuous-rated generators (100% load).  These generators are frequently specified for data centers because it’s a “no brainer”. However, this often results in units being oversized for the application. A generator de-rated to 80% at continuous load meets the Uptime Institute’s requirements.

Using generator-engine systems that do not have the ISO continuous rating does not mean the engine-generator system is less capable, as it must carry the entire data center load during an outage. Continuous power engines are considered utility-grade. In fact, commercial-grade engines are the same physical product as utility-grade engines. They are built by the same manufacturer, using the same parts and materials, so they also withstand the demands of applications requiring no limitations on runtime.

Confusion is also caused by the need to comply with EPA emission requirements. EPA standards for stationary non-emergency generators require extensive exhaust after-treatment systems such as SCR’s and DPF’s. EPA emission standards for emergency standby generators have a 200 hour runtime limitation–a direct conflict with the Uptime requirements. However, EPA does acknowledge that gensets for data centers would only be operated for extended runtimes during a true catastrophe and at the same time, operate at only 80% load, so the gensets can obtain a nameplate signifying compliance with both mission-critical continuous standards and EPA.

Note: Uptime does not specify emissions requirements. Warranty and commercial aspects also do not prevent Uptime compliance, since the limitation on runtime hours is only a financial consideration.

Some generator manufacturers have created special “data center” output rating categories, primarily for marketing purposes. Generac Industrial Power Generators with the Mission Critical Continuous rating meet the same requirements as competitors, so customers can obtain certification from the Uptime Institute.

If you would like a Mission Critical Continuous rating on your generator system, you need to submit the application for review. We will coordinate with Generac engineers and review the loads and other aspects of the application and determine whether it can run without a limitation on runtime hours. Once approved, a letter will be provided that is acceptable to the Uptime Institute for the certification process.

For detailed product specifications, key performance characteristics and installation drawings, please contact your central and northern Florida Industrial Distributor, ACF Standby Systems.  ACF Standby Systems supplies reliable standby and trailer mounted generator systems to maximize our customer’s up-time and profitability through a total solutions approach and solid customer relationships.

Prepare Your Generator for Hurricane Season

main Monday, June 23rd, 2014 No Comments

Every year around this time we like to send out a little reminder about maintaining your generator for the season. We are a currently one month into the official hurricane season. The season starts the beginning of June ends in November. It is not only advisable but necessary to be ready for a hurricane. During and especially after a storm has passed over, there is a chance that you and your business may be left without electricity.

  • A lack of electricity can cause multiple problems. Consider these potential benefits that you can experience in the event that you are left without power after a storm if you are prepared.
  • Increased Revenue- If you provide products or services that people will need after a storm, it will be increasingly difficult to operate without power. Obviously, if you cannot do business you will lose revenues. A working generator can provide you an influx of cash to pay for your own post storm repairs.
  • Social Responsibility- Your customers depend on you in good times and bad. If you are able to do business during a blackout or after a storm you will there for your customers and they will remember that. This will help down the road as it has the ability to create positive sentiment.
  • Decreased Damage to Your Facility- Without power you will be less able to address damage inside your actual facility. This can lead to structural damage and loss of equipment and files. With a working generator you can carry on operations as soon as possible.
  • In order to avoid these and other issues you should take some time to prepare your generator. If you have not done it yet, take the time to follow these tips to stave off unnecessary hurricane damage
  • Make sure that your generator is a deliberate part of your emergency plan. Does it have the capacity to meet your needs. Perhaps you bought the generator several years ago and have purchased more or larger equipment since. Ensure that your generator has the wattage capacity needed to operate your equipment/facility. Be sure to clear your equipment with your local electricity supplier to ensure you meet code. For a new or additional generator we suggest you consider one of these.
  • Properly store your generator. Is a mounted generator in a location that is above potential flood levels or your portable generator stored in area that will not be underwater? If not, relocate it immediately. Also, be sure that your generator is in a location that can accommodate the potential exhaust. This will keep your air breathable while you work after a storm.
  • Check to make sure your generator works. Start the generator to make sure that it will be ready when you need it.
  • Have the generator inspected by a professional. Even if you generator starts you may want to consider service. Carburetor and other common problems can be avoided with timely checkups by certified service technicians.
  • Be fuel ready. Regardless of which type of fuel powers your generator in times of need, have extra on hand. Being prepared will pay dividends when the lights go out. Also, you may need to remove old fuel that has been stagnant in the tank of your generator. Certain types of fuel need to be replaced if left in the generator for an extended period of time.

Your generator may be just one part of your hurricane preparation, but remember how important electricity will be after a storm. Electricity will power televisions and radios that will deliver news, refrigerators that will store food and even air conditioning which may be one of the few creature comforts available directly after a storm. More importantly, it will be impossible to get computer servers and alarm systems back online or to get employees back into a functioning office without electricity.

Load-bank Testing Importance

main Friday, March 21st, 2014 No Comments

Load-bank testing provides assurance to facility managers that their generators will perform as expected at 100% of their nameplate rating. Without regular load-bank testing, the manager radically increases the chance of failure during an emergency. To avoid risks and feel confident your gen-set will operate as expected during an emergency outage, load-bank testing should be a regular part of any generator maintenance program. Load-bank testing provides additional benefits by helping to maintain vital engine system parameters such as oil pressure and coolant temperature while preventing wet stacking and carbon buildup.

Unburned fuel accumulates in a generator when it runs at less than a full load (not enough heat to burn off excess fuel).  This accumulation process is called wet-stacking and reduces the engine’s life-cycle and efficiency by the fouling fuel injectors, engine valves, and exhaust system.

Carbon buildup occurs when the generator’s engine runs at less than full load (generating insufficient heat to remove the buildup). Left unchecked the piston rings can seize allowing the superheated fuel/air mixture to sneak past the rings scorching the sides of the pistons.

Load-bank testing schedule

In an emergency generators need to be able to go from a cold start to full load in seconds. However, to keep an engine tuned up it is recommended to exercise the engine monthly.  Running the engine at least 30 minutes monthly keeps the engine parts lubricated, prevents oxidation of electrical contacts and consumes fuel before it deteriorates.

Annual load bank testing at 100% requires a trained professional to be completed properly and safely.  Let ACF Standby highly trained professional techs preform this service.  Once we complete the testing you will have the assurance you need that your gen-set will operate at peak efficiency when you need it.

Growing Importance of Standby Generators

main Monday, January 27th, 2014 No Comments

As we grow more dependent on technology the negative  impact of a power outage is critically increased.  We have become a power dependent society in all facets of our lives; whether it be at home, health care services, industry, or any type of business relying on power to function.

Standby generator systems have the ability to sense a power outage and initiate automatically keeping your business or home out of the dark.  We use automatic transfer switches to detect a outage and then supply your facility or home with power until electricity is restored.  After power is restored the generator will shut down and stand ready for the next outage.

Commercial Facilities

If a large commercial building loses power the safety of the building occupants are at risk.  Emergency lighting, ventilation,  communication, and fire safety systems require electricity.  Batteries might provide a few useful hours but are not a long term solution.  This is where a standby generator fills in until power is restored.

Critical Environments

Several businesses cannot tolerate any power interruptions.  These include intensive care units, computer server farms, operating rooms, telecommunication centers, banks, and other critical systems.  These services use uninterruptable power to prevent any momentary power outage, even for a second.

Large battery banks power the their equipment directly using an inverter.  When power is interrupted, the batteries continue supplying power until the standby generator comes online supplying the power necessary to keep the batteries charged.  Once power is restored the generator shuts down allowing the utility to supply power to the batteries.

Industry

Sometimes in industry standby generators serve dual roles.  Manufacturers often have agreements with utilities that allow them to interrupt power on short notice when demand exceeds available supply.  Having a reliable generator on site allows factory to run during these unplanned outages.

The generator can also supply power to critical safety systems during an outage.  The safety systems are often mandated by building codes and having a standby generator is not an option.

Retail

The most important role a standby generator performs in the retail industry is the prevention of food product loss. Some larger stores could lose up to a million dollars in inventory during a prolong outage.  The temperature requirements for food safety are strict and standby generator could be the difference between keeping a small business doors open and a devastating loss.  And added advantage of a standby generator is a store can remain open after a declared emergency.

Homes

A standby generator for your home can be the difference between spoiled food, unbearable heat, and keeping your home dry and mold-free after a storm.  It will also allow you to keep up on the latest news and emergency information.

Active Hurricane Season?

main Monday, June 3rd, 2013 No Comments

by Bill Hogan

NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center has issued a pre-season Atlantic Hurricane forecast that calls for 13 to 20 named storms.  This prediction includes 7 to 11 hurricanes with 3 to 6 being major hurricanes (Category 3 or higher) with winds above 111 mph.  This prediction is well above seasonal averages.  Should this predication spur you to action?  Of course, especially when your business relies on reliable backup power in an emergency.  Backup power saved countless businesses millions of dollars in losses by providing the life blood of energy needed to provide needed supplies, emergency services, maintain productivity, and meet deadlines.

After a storm power lines are knocked down and transformers are blown over wide swaths of land.  Crews roll in from different states to rebuild power, but it will be days.  Emergency providers, telecommunications, groceries and hardware stores needed to provide support to the rebuilding area miles from  the storm are without power.  Can you imagine the relief on managers/storeowners’ faces after everything goes dark and seconds later power kicks-in?  When all was lost a ray of hope shines through, “We can beat this.”  When the diesel engines roared to life, power returned and they could provide the support necessary to help to those in need.  Standby generators provide the necessary boost in energy needed to allow the rebuilding process to begin.

There is a hidden message in this story of recovery; a message of preparedness.

It was not an accident that these Generator Sets roar to life providing the best hope of recovery.  Emergency Generator Sets must be regularly maintained to ensure they provide quality power throughout their service life. Owners of emergency generators may establish maintenance agreements with generator dealers/service centers in order to maintain their generator(s), automatic transfer switches, and other associated equipment. The life-cycle of power generators is then well established and documented making routine maintenance fairly straight-forward.

The long, outstanding use of generators over time has provided the necessary knowledge to predict when certain components will fail or be in need of service. A fairly reliable maintenance schedule can usually be acquired and can be employed by a local generator dealer/service center with experience in the power generation. Adhering to this schedule will ensure maximum service time for the generator and proper operation when it is called upon to provide power.

The main responsibility of the maintenance contractor would be to inspect systems, study the technical data provided by the generator manufacturer, maintain records, and take precautionary measures for safety.

Some of the steps to ensure smooth generator operation while carrying out scheduled maintenance include:

  • Timely removal of worn parts or upgrading the components
  • Checking fluid levels
  • Battery inspection and cleaning of connections
  • Load bank testing
  • Verifying control panel readings and indicators
  • Changing fuel and air filters

Small investments made in replacing components and maintaining generator systems on a regular basis can save expensive and unnecessary upgrades or even replacement of the entire generator in the future.

When performing routine maintenance, each action taken should be logged, and the readings and various parameters should be recorded along with the date of the inspection and hour meter readings of the generator. These set of readings are compared with the next set of data collected. Any absurd variation of readings indicates faulty performance of the unit.

Load testing of automatic transfer switches in regular intervals keeps track of the component’s electrical and mechanical integrity in the actual mechanical transfer operation. Other factors to be checked periodically are starting and time relays, start signal continuity, fuel, and oil sampling.

Proper preventative maintenance ensures that you get back-up power when you need it. You can be confident of service on a priority basis in case of dire emergency and discounted service rates for additional work. Once a facility enters into a service agreement, the facility can relax on this aspect as the maintenance provider keeps track of when the next service inspection is due and makes the visits at regular intervals. They ensure that the products purchased through them receive consistent and reliable service.

Whether you use an expert outside contractor (preferred method) or choose to do the work yourself, it is important to keep to your maintenance / testing schedule.  Equally important is to have highly trained and certified technicians maintaining your equipment.  Do not leave anything to chance unless you can afford to be without reliable power when you need it.

Proper maintenance and servicing is the key to reliability.  Remember the seven P’s of emergency power; Prior Proper Preventative Preparation Precludes Power Problems.  You never know when the ill winds of fate will blow another storm in your direction.
