There are a variety of diesel generators used on the market. When buying a diesel generator, it is important to consider the purpose for which will be used generator. This helps reduce the right of the type of new or used diesel generator powered at the time of purchase, such as a small diesel generator or a portable diesel generator.
A small diesel generator, used at home, will use much less energy than - for example - a large industrial generator used in a large vehicle such as a ship. Diesel generators are used on ships as a source of energy for propulsion. electric drives as diesel generators for ships were developed before World War II and the generators have been specified in many warships built during the Second World War due to the manufacturing capacity for large reduction gears was rare, relative to the production capacity of electrical equipment. The higher cost in terms of owning diesel generators of the plant's fuel consumption and operating costs of fuels for power applications. Specific consumption varies, but modern diesel plant consumes between 0.28 and 0.4 liters of fuel per kilowatt hour at the generator terminals. However, while the diesel engine is called diesel engines, it does not mean that they can not function with diesel. The motors can operate with the full range of petroleum distillates, natural gas, alcohol, gasoline, wood gas to diesel oil to residual fuels. Conversion to diesel fuel operation 100% can be obtained instantly.
New diesel generators and opportunity are used as backup power during power outages. In addition, a diesel generator (which is a combination of a diesel engine, a generator and various ancillary devices) support systematically main power grids worldwide in two distinct ways: Pic Registration and grid support. advanced economies see diesel generators to be connected to the highest peak rush hours of electricity, which is usually in the afternoon in winter in cold climates and noon in summer in warm climates. network support sees emergency standby diesel generator, such as those used in hospitals, water systems, etc., used as a secondary function. In the UK, for example, about 0.5 GWe diesel are commonly used to support the national network, the peak load is about 60 GW. This usually occurs when the loss of a large conventional plant, or a sudden and unexpected increase in energy demand eroding the normal spinning reserve available. used diesel generators have become an essential part of our daily life and here to stay for the foreseeable future.
