Abstract: Insufficient development of power supply infrastructure, necessity to create reserve power supply sources promotes development of distributed power generation. The main accompanied issues are decrease in fuel consumption and increase in capacity of the sets. Global market of engine–generator sets is saturated and highly competitive. One of the approaches to achieve these aims and to improve competitiveness is application of turbogenerators. This article presents feasibility study of application of turbogenerators in internal combustion engines as a component of engine–generator set. The closest analogs of the developed turbogenerator are given. Advantages and disadvantages of the developed device are compared with those of analogs. Analysis of application of turbogenerator from the point of view of consumers is given, payback periods are determined.
