About Diesel Generator Engines

 

There are significant differences between diesel-fueled and gasoline-fueled engines.  
In a diesel engine, air is compressed during the compression stroke of the piston and fuel is injected into the hot, compressed air in the cylinder, spontaneously igniting the fuel. Because of this, the diesel engine is sometimes referred to as a compression engine. In a gasoline engine, a vaporized mixture of gasoline and air is compressed in the combustion chamber and ignited by a spark plug. For this reason, it is sometimes referred to as a spark ignition engine.

A diesel engine also has a much higher compression ratio of the air/fuel mixture. This higher ratio means that that they must be heavier and tougher.


Advantages of a Diesel Generator

Here is a list of just some of the advantages of choosing a diesel generator for your business.

 

  • A diesel generator produces more power than a gasoline or propane/natural gas powered generator, which means that it would cost less to operate than a gasoline or propane/natural gas powered generator of the same size.
  • The engine of a diesel generator has fewer moving parts. Fewer moving parts means less chance for things to break, which means you can depend on your diesel generator. If it is going to be used as the emergency power source for your business, dependability is one of the most important things to consider. A diesel generator also doesn’t burn as hot as its gas powered counterpart, making it last longer and therefore more dependable.
  • Diesel generators used to be known for being loud and clunky, and expensive to maintain. But the modern diesel generator is much quieter and requires less maintenance.
  • Thanks to technological advances and the trend towards being more environmentally friendly, biodiesel fuel is now an option, which can run in a diesel generator and is less pollutant. Biodiesel is cleaner burning and has a longer engine life, so as research continues and biodiesel become more readily available, using a diesel generator can be an even better choice.


Diesel Generator Applications

Diesel generators come in a wide range of sizes but it’s more typical to find them starting at about the 20kW range and getting as large as several thousand kW’s. A diesel generator can be used for residential backup power, but because they are noisier and require storage of diesel fuel, diesel generators are typically used in commercial and industrial settings. A diesel generator can be used to supply vital power to all selected loads, and are often used in hospitals, hotels, restaurants, emergency facilities, the telecommunications industry, manufacturing plants, and any other industries that require a supply of uninterrupted power.
How to Use An Electric Generator:
1. Read the manufacturer’s instructions manual
Even though it may seem obvious, most do not do this, and for this reason we insist that it is very important.
2. Place the generator in an appropriate place
Before you do anything else, try to place the electric generator in a level and stable place. This will prevent you from future headaches such as an accident that could have been avoided by correct manipulation of the device.
Furthermore, install it at a distance of 1m from any other object because the generator produces heat and smoke, and for this reason you must also place it 6m away from a window or door, and check that it is in a dry place.
 3. Check the fuel level (whether it’s diesel or gasoline)
Generally these appliances have a fuel indicator. Check whether the fuel tank is full. Do not attempt to start it without fuel. You could damage your generator this way. As a precaution, once your generator and any appliances connected to it are started up, do not let the fuel run out, as this could cause a fluctuation  of unnecessary current that provokes a failure of the connected electronic devices.
4. Check the oil level of the generator
As you already know, the generator also indicates oil levels, whether it is 2 times or 4 times. Check that it has a sufficient amount of oil in order for the internal parts of the motor to be properly lubricated upon start up. Keep in mind that not any kind of oil will do. The manufacturer’s manual will tell you the viscosity and the type of oil that are required.
5. Examine the air filter
Some brands use air filters of different sizes. If this is the case, check that it is not clogged and that it’s not necessary to change it. This will result in a greater lifespan and better performance by reducing fuel use.
 6. Place the Starter button and the contact button in a proper position.
It is is recommended to always have the STARTER button activated due to the carburation motor that needs to heat up to the maximum. Then, press or move the contact button to “ON”.
7. Open the fuel shut-off valve
Always leave this valve off when not the generator is not in use for security reasons.
8. Turn on the generator
In this case, depending on the model of the electric generator that you have, you will have to push the START button, turn the key, or pull firmly on a starter string to start the generator. After it heats up a little, you can leave the STARTER lever mentioned in point 6 OFF. This way you can start using your generator and connect what you need.
9.Turn off the generator
Last but not least, these are the steps to turn off your generator once you no longer need it, when fueling it, or changing the oil. Push the START button once again or turn the key to the OFF position to turn off your generator. Then, turn the fuel shut off valve off.
Maintenance of Electric Generators

 

Every now and then it is necessary to carry out repair and maintenance tasks of electric generators.
In this sense, maintenance tasks are centered on two fundamental elements: the motor and the alternator:
  • Maintenance of the electric generator motor
  1. Control the oil level– Make sure that the oil level is between the MIN and MAX marks of the rod.
  2. Oil and Oil Filters– Always respect the recommended time interval of oil changing and substitute the oil filter at the same time.
  3. Air Filter – Regularly clean the air filter. There is no established cleaning interval. It varies based on the dust concentration in the air and the chosen size of the filter. Furthermore, replace the air filter when the appliance indicates you should do so.
  4. Belts of auxiliary elements– The inspection and the adjustment of the belts should be done after a state of functioning, when the belts are hot. Loosen the screws before tightening the belts of the alternator and check that there are at least 10mm between the pulleys. If they are worn out, change them.
  5. Cooling system– Fill the said system with a coolant that protects the motor against internal corrosion and freezing if the climate demands it. Never use water alone.
  6. Fuel filter – the substitution of fuel should be done with a cold motor in order to avoid the risk of fire that originates from fuel spillage on hot surfaces.

 

  • Alternator Maintenance

We must examine the state of the spools, especially when the generators have been inactive for a long time, as well as the condition of the bearings. In the same way, in generators that work with wipers, it is necessary to check the wear of these and proceed to clean the slip rings.

Spool Condition –  In order to verify the good condition of the spools, we will have to measure the ground isolation, meaning the ohmic resistance provided by the casing of the machine in relation to the earth, as it fluctuates when dirt and humidity are present in the spools.


Bearings – Verify every once in awhile if the bearings overheat or produce excessive noise during normal functioning.  These elements generally have to be replaced after 40,000 hours of service. In the case of the bearings driven by pulleys, it is recommended to change them out earlier, after 25,000 hours of service.
