 How to Choose a Cost-effective Diesel Generator Set

First of all, if the power of the diesel generator you choose is not suitable, it may cause premature failure, overload capacity, shortened equipment life and dangerous. So when buying a backup generator, there are many factors to consider, especially when choosing a power source.


If your business or factory is considering purchasing a new standby diesel generator (or replacing an existing generator), you need to determine whether its power is appropriate.


At present, there are many major diesel generator sets on the market, including Yuchai, Shangchai, Cummins, Volvo and other domestic and foreign diesel generator sets. When you make a purchase decision, you need to determine your power generation needs so that you can choose the most suitable diesel generator.  


Therefore, for new users, before purchasing a diesel generator set, they must first understand the meaning of unit backup, motor startup, single-phase or three-phase, kW or KVA.  


First, we need to understand the various generator powers. This kind of power equipment is classified according to the capacity level. In industrial applications, the power of the generator ranges from 20kW to 3000kW, or it is a small power plant. It is usually better to choose a larger power than assumed.


Second, consider the type of fuel. Diesel engines can adapt to various environments. For example, in a cold environment, diesel is a better choice because it is not easy to freeze. Studying these possibilities can help you choose the right machine to handle most of the situations your business may face.


Third, the generator brand is reliable. Generally speaking, diesel generators are usually installed due to unstable main power supply, frequent power outages, interruption of public grid power supply, or public grid power supply interruption, or use of a backup power system as a preventive measure. No matter where it is used, when the mains power is suddenly cut off, the diesel generator set can start normally without failure  


Therefore, don't choose unknown cheap brands to save money. Cooperating with mature generator manufacturers that have been tested and have a good record can avoid problems in the operation of the unit, which will affect the power supply.


To purchase a backup generator, it is necessary to examine many details and skills.
