The diesel generator is a machine that helps in supplying backup power in the absence of main grid electricity. It runs on the fuel or some generator runs with the help of external sources.
A generator runs on a fuel is energy efficient that can support the electronic appliance for long hours.
What are Diesel Generators?
The term “Diesel Generators” are a machine that converts fuel (mechanical energy) into useful power (electrical energy). It provides non-stop power and uses as both primary and secondary sources. This generator carries by an internal combustion engine. The electricity generates by the combo of a diesel engine with an electric generator to supply backup power.
This generator consumes diesel fuel and generates AC (alternate current) electricity. It produces more efficient energy compared to other kinds of generators. Further, the diesel generator consumes less diesel fuel and generates a large amount of power (electricity) by burning it.
A generator electric actuator is a fuel control positioning device. It helps in controlling the injected fuel.
Diesel Generators VS Other Generators:
There are different kinds of fuel are available in the market including gasoline, diesel, propane, or natural gas. The latest model of diesel generator are available with the latest designs and technologies. These latest models contain extra fuel options to run a generator using desirable fuels. These diesel generator’s capabilities allows to a fuel of consumer’s choice.
A diesel fuel is capable to produce per kilowatt of power (electricity). The diesel generator consumes less diesel fuel when it injects into a generator. This fuel is energy efficient and can generate the large amount of electrical power.
A diesel engine is capable to run 2 to 3 times longer than propane, gasoline, or natural gas engines. Most of the diesel engine comes up with water-cooled techniques to run up to the speed of 1800 rpm. This technique ensures the durability of diesel generator compared to other kinds of generators.
Diesel Generator’s Main Parts and Components:
- A Diesel Engine:
It’s a source of obtaining mechanical energy (fuel). It burns a diesel fuel and generates electricity from it. The bigger the size of the engine, the more power (electricity) it will produce.
- An Alternator:
It turns a diesel fuel into an AC alternator by rotatory motion. The alternator plays an important role in generating electrical power.
- Fuel System:
The fuel system consists of a fuel tank and the pipe that connects with a diesel engine.
- Voltage Regulator:
It helps in regulating voltage output generated from a generator.
- Lubricating System:
It’s a system that connects to the oil pump and a diesel engine to smoothen the functionality of the diesel generator.
- Exhaust and Cooling System:
Both system plays great role in preventing and protecting the diesel generator from over heating.
- Battery System and Battery Charger:
This battery helps in connecting with the generator to operate.
- Control Panel:
It’s an automatic device that helps in controlling and maintaining the operation of the diesel generator.
- Main Frame Structure:
It refers to a house of the diesel generator. It contains a protecting frame that helps in protecting from weather and water.
