October 29, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] Plug Power has added standby capability to thier GenSys 5C, the company’s 5 kW combined heat and power fuel cell system. The standby feature allows the fuel cell to provide power to critical loads upon grid interruption. GenSys 5C is designed to operate in parallel with the electric grid, providing base load power to customer facilities. During a grid outage, the system will automatically transfer to standby mode providing uninterrupted power to critical loads. Upon restoration of grid service, the system will resume its normal grid parallel mode of operation.
