Power Solutions International Introduces New Turbo Charge Air Cooled 8.8-Liter Engine at POWERGEN
The engine is PSI’s first since announcing its partnership with Moteurs Baudouin, the French manufacturer of marine and power generation engines. Baudouin featured the engine during the Middle East Energy event in early March at the
With an output of 200 kWe, the 8.8-liter engine’s power is exceptional for a natural gas engine. For gas standby power generation applications, this output is the highest output ever recorded from such displacement. In order to achieve this rating, several advanced engineering improvements in material design, engine design, and engine cooling have been implemented.
The new engine produces 100 percent more power than the naturally aspirated variant of the same engine displacement, and 60 percent more power than the turbocharged engine variant. It also produces 33 percent more power than turbocharged and charge-air-cooled engine variants of same displacement.
The new PSI 8.8-liter 200 kWe engine benefits from a robust design with patented water-cooled exhaust manifolds, and has a sleek modular design to reduce the number of different parts. PSI developed the engine using advanced Engine Simulation (
Like all of PSI’s engines, the new 8.8-liter engine offers OEMs and users maximum performance, reliability and simplicity. “PSI’s manufacturing and engineering proficiency enable us to get a lot of output from our engines,” said
The engine is well-suited toward emergency standby applications. “The many hours of continuous power generated from the 150kWe variant of this engine demonstrate how robust it is,” he added. “This engine is designed for smaller installations and is an effective complement to PSI’s larger 10- and 11-liter options.”
PSI develops and delivers powertrains purpose-built for medium-duty trucks and buses including school and transit buses, work trucks, terminal tractors, and various other vocational vehicles. In addition, PSI develops and delivers complete power systems that are used worldwide in stationary and mobile power generation applications supporting standby, prime, demand response, microgrid, and co-generation power (CHP) applications; and industrial applications that include forklifts, agricultural and turf, arbor care, industrial sweepers, aerial lifts, irrigation pumps, ground support, and construction equipment.
