Some basic components used in operation of diesel generators  

Diesel generators play a vital role in meeting the power needs of residential or industrial sites during power outages.  The new and different brands of diesel generators sold by Dingbo power are the best way to ensure that your lighting and equipment are running properly.  An important source of backup power, diesel generators, can help you meet your power needs in an emergency.  

Diesel generators provide electricity to equipment that runs on electricity by burning the fuel used to generate electricity.  Generators include various components such as fuel system, engine, voltage regulator, alternator, control panel, lubrication system, cooling and exhaust system.  

Let's take a look at some of the basic components used in running a diesel generator:  


The alternator of a generator:  

An alternator is a component of a generator that produces an electrical output to generate electricity.  The stator and rotor of the alternator surround the latter by a housing unit that contains the important functions of the generator.  Although the shell is plastic or metal, metal is very advantageous because it is less susceptible to damage that might expose moving parts.  The main components of the alternator are needle roller bearings or ball bearings.  From the perspective of two basic elements, ball bearings have a higher service life than needle roller bearings.  


The fuel system of the generator mainly includes the connecting pipe from the fuel tank to the engine, the ventilation pipe and the overflow pipe from the fuel tank to the drain pipe, the fuel filter, the fuel pump, and the fuel injector.  External tanks are used for large commercial generators.  Small generators include fuel tanks located at the top or bottom.  

The generator control panel is fully functional and is also the part that opens the generator.  An important part of the control panel is electric start and close.  Some generator sets provide automatic functions when power is not available.  Engine gauges also exist in the control panel.  It helps to check coolant temperature, oil pressure, and battery voltage.  


One of the important components of a generator that produces mechanical energy is the engine.  Generators can be used for various engines.  The engine completely regulates the electricity produced by the generator in the generator.  The different fuels used by the generator's engine are natural gas, diesel, gasoline, and liquid propane.  


Different types of generators are industrial generators, residential backup generators, commercial backup generators, portable diesel generators, mobile trailer generators, silent generators, and so on.  


In general, the above are the basic parts of the generator used in terms of function.  The utility of the generator ultimately depends on the application for which it is intended, commercial or residential.  Therefore, you must consider buying well-known brands of generators, such as dingbo series diesel generators.  In Dingbo Electric Power, we have different types of diesel generators for you to choose, you can according to your budget and preferences, choose the diesel generator to buy, you can contact us, we will help you to choose the right diesel generator according to your requirements.
