Diesel Generator: Everything you need to know before buying one

What is a Diesel generator?
A diesel generator or diesel Genset is the combination of a diesel engine with an electric generator (often an alternator) to generate electrical energy. This is a specific case of engine-generator. A diesel compression-ignition engine is usually designed to run on diesel fuel, but some types are adapted for other liquid fuels or natural gas.

Diesel generating sets are used in places without connection to a power grid, or as emergency power-supply if the grid fails, as well as for more complex applications such as peak-lopping, grid support, and export to the power grid.

Generating sets are selected based on the electrical load they are intended to supply, the electrical load’s characteristics such as kW, kVA, var, harmonic content, surge currents (e.g., motor starting current), and non-linear loads. The expected duty (such as emergency, prime or continuous power), as well as environmental conditions (such as altitude, temperature, and exhaust emissions regulations), must also be considered.

Proper sizing of diesel generators is critical to avoid low-load or a shortage of power. Sizing is complicated by the characteristics of modern electronics, specifically non-linear loads. In size ranges around 50 MW and above, an open cycle gas turbine is more efficient at full load than an array of diesel engines, and far more compact, with comparable capital costs; but for regular part-loading, even at these power levels, diesel arrays are sometimes preferred to open cycle gas turbines, due to their superior efficiencies.

 


Why a Diesel generator?
Diesel generators are not only for emergency power, but may also have a secondary function of feeding power to utility grids either during peak periods, or periods when there is a shortage of large power generators.

Emergency standby or backup diesel generators, such as poultry facilities and winery, Gas-stations, housing, villa residences, office, and factory communication stations, broadcasting stations, lighting facilities, and traffic signal stations. On-line system of the banks, credit unions, and agricultural cooperative associations. Battery for portable telephones base. Facilities for draining water for underground engineering construction.
