What Is A Diesel Engine Generator?

A diesel engine generator is known as the combination of a diesel engine with an electric generator (often an alternator) used to generate electrical energy. This is a specific case of diesel engine-generator. A diesel engine generator is usually designed to run on fuel, but some types of generators are adapted for other liquid fuels or natural gas.

Diesel engine generator sets are used to power places without connection to a power grid, or as an emergency power-supply if the power grid fails. A diesel engine generator can also be used for more complex applications like peak-lopping, grid support and export to the power grid.

Diesel Engine Generator Sizes:

Diesel engine generator sets are selected based on their electrical load that they are intended to supply. These electrical load's characteristics such as kWe, kVA, var, harmonic content, surge currents (e.g.motor starting current) and non-linear loads. The diesel engine generator's expected duty (emergency, prime or continuous power) as well as the environmental conditions (altitude, temperature and exhaust emissions regulations) should also be considered.
