Nowadays gas reciprocating units (GRUs) are widely used for combined generation of thermal and electrical energy at low-capacity units. GRUs represent internal combustion engines, working on gas. A number of foreign and national manufactures produce GRUs with capacity, changing from several watts to 10 MW with heat utilization for heat-supply needs.
