PROMETHEUS Ignition System for gas turbines
PROMETHEUS is an igniter power system for gas turbines. Used in conjunction with standard surface effect spark plugs it produces an intense spark twice a second while energised from a nominal 24 VDC battery power supply.
Energy conversion and utilisation in the spark plug is very high and compared with alternative systems. The spark projects further out from the tip of the plug providing more successful ignition considering air fuel ratio and pressure. This is especially true on liquid fuelled turbines with pressure atomised burner nozzles.
- Total output: 2000 V / 16 Joules
- Power supply: Nominal 24 VDC battery
- Connections: 4 for plugs
- Certified flameproof for installation in Zone 1 hazardous areas (all gas groups).
- Access for connection of supply and HT cables is provided by screw terminals after removing a screw down domed upper casing. This avoids the need for inconvenient and expensive electrical connections in the external HT cable.
