* Capstone Turbine Corp., a maker of power generators for homes and small businesses, received a second order from Japan's Takuma Co. for 250 microturbine sets to be used in cogeneration systems. The value wasn't disclosed by Capstone spokesman Keith Field. Amagasaki, Japan-based Takuma will buy the sets over the next year. Takuma bought 100 of the sets last year. Takuma will use the microturbine parts, which reduce fuel costs, in its TCP-30 line of packaged heat, refrigeration and power systems. It will sell the systems to industrial companies and Japanese utilities, Chatsworth-based Capstone said. Capstone's turbines produce enough electricity to power a convenience store or typical office building. Capstone shares rose 29 cents to close at $29.35 on Nasdaq. They've risen 83% since the company's initial public offering in June.
