LS2100 Static Starter

The LS2100 Static Starter is an adjustable speed ac drive system specifically designed to start a gas turbine-generator set. By operating the generator as a synchronous motor, the Static Starter accelerates the turbine set according to a specific speed profile that provides optimum starting conditions for the gas turbine. The LS2100 eliminates the need for separate starting hardware, such as an electric motor or diesel engine, torque converters, and associated auxiliary equipment, thus opening up critical space around the turbine base. url :
