Precautions for Assembling Diesel Generator Sets

Oct. 09, 2023

What do you think should be paid attention to when assembling a diesel generator set? The equipment address of the diesel generator set should have excellent ventilation, the generator end should have satisfactory air inlet, and the diesel generator set end should have excellent air outlet. The area of the air outlet should be more than 1.5 times that of the water tank. The surrounding area of the diesel generator set equipment should be kept clean to avoid placing items that can cause corrosive gases and vapors such as acid and alkaline in the vicinity. If conditions permit, rescue equipment should be equipped. When diesel generator sets are used indoors, it is necessary to guide the smoke exhaust pipes to the outside. The pipe diameter must be ≥ the diameter of the exhaust pipe of the muffler, and the elbows of the connected pipes should not exceed 3 to ensure smoke evacuation. The pipes should be tilted down 5-10 degrees to avoid rainwater injection.

If the exhaust pipe is straight up towards the equipment, it is necessary to install a rain cover. When using concrete as the foundation, the diesel generator set must be measured for levelness with a level ruler during equipment installation, so that the diesel generator set is fixed on a horizontal foundation. There should be dedicated shockproof pads or anchor bolts between the diesel generator set and the foundation. It is necessary to have a reliable protective grounding for the casing of diesel generator sets. For diesel generator sets that require direct grounding of the neutral point, it is necessary to have professional personnel conduct neutral grounding and equip them with lightning protection equipment. It is prohibited to use grounding equipment from the mains for direct grounding of the neutral point.


The bidirectional switch between the diesel generator and the mains is necessary to be very reliable to prevent reverse power transmission. The wiring reliability of the bidirectional switch needs to be verified and approved by the local power supply department. The above are the issues that our company has compiled for everyone to pay attention to when assembling diesel generator sets. As an important emergency backup power supply, users must ensure that it can continuously test run without faults within the specified time and pass the load test before it can be put into use to ensure safety.
