What are the basic categories of diesel generator sets?

What are the basic categories of diesel generator sets?

First, diesel generator sets can be divided into basic, self-starting, and microcomputer automatic control diesel generator sets according to their automation functions.

  1. Basic diesel generator set

This type of diesel generator set is the most common. It consists of a diesel engine, a water tank, a muffler, an alternator, a control box, a coupling, and a chassis. It can generally be used as a main power source or a backup power source.

  1. Self-starting diesel generator set

ITCPower generator reminder: This type of diesel generator set adds a fully automatic control system (ATS box) to the basic unit. It has an automatic switching function. When the mains power is suddenly cut off, the unit can automatically start, automatically switch the power switch, automatic power supply, and automatic shutdown. When the unit oil pressure is too low, the oil temperature is too high, or the cooling water temperature is too high, the unit can also automatically send out a photo-acoustic warning signal. When the generator set is overspeed, it can automatically emergency stop operation to protect the diesel generator.

  1. Microcomputer control automatic diesel generator set

This type of diesel generator set consists of a complete performance diesel engine, three-phase brushless synchronous generator, automatic fuel replenishment device, automatic oil replenishment device, automatic cooling water replenishment device ATS automatic control panel, ATS automatic control panel adopts programmable automatic PLC control, in addition to the functions of automatic start, automatic switching, automatic operation, automatic input and automatic shutdown, it is also equipped with various fault alarms and automatic protection devices.

Secondly, according to different purposes, it can be divided into standby generator sets, common generator sets, combat-ready generator sets and emergency generator sets.

  1. Standby generator set.

Under normal circumstances, the power required by the user is supplied by the mains. When the mains limit is switched off or the power supply is interrupted for other reasons, the generator set is set up to ensure the user’s basic production and life. Such generator sets are located in important power users such as industrial and mining enterprises, hospitals, hotels, banks, airports, and radio stations where the city’s power supply is in short supply.

  1. Commonly used generator sets.

This type of generator set operates all year round and is generally located in areas far away from the power grid (or municipal power) or near industrial and mining enterprises to meet the needs of construction, production and living in these places. At present, in areas with relatively rapid rapid development, common diesel generator sets with a short construction period are needed to meet the needs of users. This type of generator set generally has a larger capacity.

  1. Prepare the generator set.

This type of generator set is used to supply power for civil air defense and national defense facilities. It has the nature of a backup generator set in peacetime, but it has the nature of a commonly used generator set after the city power is destroyed in wartime. This type of generator set is generally installed underground and has a certain degree of protection.

  1. Emergency generator set.

For electrical equipment that will cause major losses or personal accidents due to a sudden interruption of the mains power, emergency generator sets are often installed to provide emergency power to these equipment, such as high-rise building fire protection systems, evacuation lighting, elevators, automated production line control systems and important communication systems, etc. . This type of generator set needs to install a self-starting diesel generator set, which requires a high degree of automation.

The above are some basic classifications of diesel generator sets. Users can choose diesel generator sets according to their own needs and suitable environment. Different classifications of diesel generator sets are also classified into different functions, so be sure to Analyze carefully.
