What Are the Types and Uses of Diesel Generators

Jul. 07, 2021

Diesel generator set is a kind of power generation equipment with diesel as the main fuel, which uses diesel engine as the driving force to drive the generator (i.e. electric ball) to generate electricity and convert kinetic energy into electrical energy and heat energy.


The whole set of diesel generator set is mainly divided into three parts:


1. Diesel engine.


2. Generator (i.e. electric ball).             


3. Controller.


What is the function of diesel generator?


1、 Self provided power supply. Some power units do not have network power supply, such as islands far away from mainland, remote pastoral areas, rural areas, military camps, workstations, radar stations in desert plateau, etc., so they need to be equipped with self-contained power. The so-called self-contained power supply is the self-contained power supply. In the case of low power generation, diesel generator sets are often the first choice of self-contained power.


2、 Standby power supply. Standby power supply, also known as emergency power supply, is mainly used for emergency power generation in order to prevent accidents, such as circuit failure or temporary power failure, although some power users have reliable network power supply.It can be seen that the standby power supply is actually a kind of self provided power supply, but it is not used as the main power supply, but only used as a relief means in case of emergency.


3、 Alternative power supply. The role of alternative power supply is to make up for the lack of network power supply. There may be two situations: one is that the price of grid power is too high, so diesel generator set is selected as the alternative power supply from the perspective of cost saving; The other is that in the case of insufficient supply of network power, the use of network power is limited, and the power supply department has to turn off everywhere to limit power. At this time, in order to produce and work normally, the power users need to replace the power supply for relief.


4、 Mobile power. Mobile power is a kind of power generation facility that is transferred everywhere without fixed place of use. Because of its light, flexible and easy operation, diesel generator set has become the first choice of mobile power supply. Mobile power supply is generally designed in the form of power vehicle, including self powered vehicle and trailer powered vehicle.

What Are the Types and Uses of Diesel Generators


The performance of diesel generator set is stable and reliable, three high environmental adaptability is strong; The unit is durable, compact and occupies less space; The cloud platform is easy to operate, easy to maintain and operate, only needs a small number of staff, and easy to maintain during standby.Widely used in animal husbandry, hospitals, shopping malls, shipping, garbage disposal, water conservancy and hydropower, factory standby, outdoor welding, metallurgical mining, cold storage, municipal engineering, civil air defense engineering, schools, flood control and drought relief, highways, hotels, military, real estate, data center, communication industry, fire standby and other industries.
