What should be Paid Attention to When Using Diesel Generator Battery

Sep. 01, 2021

The battery is the starting component of the diesel generator set. It is one of the important conditions to ensure that each diesel generator set can start successfully. Its function is to implement the electric start of the diesel engine, control the fuel system of the unit, and automation (ATS). Start running or stop in real time. If the battery power supply of the generator set is abnormal, it may cause the diesel generator set to fail to start and run normally. Therefore, all users, especially new users, must pay attention to the following matters when using the diesel generator battery.


New Users! Pay Attention to These Matters When Using Diesel Generator Battery

1. The new battery is usually shipped together as a random accessory. For the convenience of storage and transportation, the new battery of diesel generator set does not contain electrolyte, and the user needs to add electrolyte before use. If it is a non-wet charge battery, the user should remember Charge first before adding electrolyte. Since the maintenance-free battery dedicated to Dingbo Power has been filled with electrolyte and sealed before leaving the factory, there is no need to add additional electrolyte.


2. Pay attention to the charging time. The first charging time of the new battery is less than 4 hours, and the positive and negative poles should not be connected wrongly. The positive and negative poles of the diesel generator set battery should be connected to the positive and negative poles of the charger, and they should be turned on at the same time. The exhaust cover allows the gas generated during charging to be smoothly discharged.


3. During the battery charging process, pay attention to the electrolyte temperature not to be too high (not exceeding 48°C), otherwise, cooling measures such as reducing the current and increasing ventilation should be taken.


4. The user should develop the habit of frequent charging to ensure that the battery power is kept at full capacity at any time, and remember not to wait for the battery to run out to recharge, so as not to shorten the battery life due to "deep discharge".


5. Do not turn the battery upside down when charging.


6. When charging a new battery, the user should choose to do it in a ventilated place. Do not cover the battery with anything. There should be no sparks or open flames nearby, because the battery will generate a certain amount of heat during the charging process. If you don’t pay attention, It may damage the charger and battery, or even cause safety accidents such as accidental fire.


7. A fully charged battery should be recharged once a month if it is left unused for a long time.


The above precautions are for all ordinary diesel generator batteries. When using the battery, users need to know which battery they are using. The actual operation of different types of batteries may be different.
