Mar. 08, 2024

Nowadays, power outages are increasing, and in fact, the frequency of power outages has doubled in recent years. The power outage has had a huge impact on our society. Disrupting traffic, closing basic businesses such as supermarkets and gas stations, and posing risks to people's health.

Assuming you are someone who is afraid of power outages and seeking solutions, today, please take a look at a guide to purchasing a handheld diesel generator with Dingbo to help you get help when buying a suitable generator.


Portable gas and diesel generators.


Gasoline engines are well-known. Cars, trucks, and lawn mowers are all there seems to be stations everywhere. If you don't drive a trailer, you may not have a diesel engine.


In fact, diesel engines are more efficient than gasoline engines. When there is a power outage, this is a real advantage. According to the relevant energy department, the efficiency of diesel engines is 30% to 35% higher than that of gasoline engines. They have fewer moving parts, which means less maintenance throughout the entire life cycle of diesel engines.


So how much power does the generator need?


It all depends on what power source you want or need, and everything is measured in watts. Starting appliances such as electric stoves and refrigerators requires a large amount of electricity, with almost no need for lights and fans. Your air conditioning equipment will consume a lot, especially commercial equipment.


You should calculate the total amount of electricity you need to help you calculate specific needs.


All devices scheduled to run simultaneously must be added. Your refrigerator and freezer should be a top priority because if your food is not running for a long time, it will spoil.


Next is heating or air conditioning. In winter, when there is a power outage and it is cold, you need to keep warm. The above two main electrical appliances can consume the most energy, please consider.


Then, you may need to start the stove, microwave, dishwasher, etc. The power of these appliances varies from person to person, so please check your special appliances to obtain accurate values.


Finally, you need to power lights, fans, televisions, radios, computers, and other small appliances. Doing so will consume a small amount of wattage, but you should know these numbers.


All of these together, you will get a number, but there is one last thing to consider. Most appliances consume a lot of electricity during startup. The larger the device, the more power is needed to start it. After starting, the electrical appliances consume less electricity.


Assuming your air conditioning power is 20000 watts, but it consumes 22000 watts of electricity when starting. Don't buy a 20000 watt maximum power generator because it can never turn on the air conditioning. You need a power source that exceeds the starting power. Electric furnaces and heat pumps are used in large buildings and consume a large amount of electricity during the start-up process.


Hard wired conversion switch, plug and play.


Most generators have plug and play functionality. They have various sockets, and you can connect different types of power lines to all devices.


The keyword is electric wire. Outside the building, the generator is connected to the electrical appliances, and you need a sufficiently long wire. For most appliances, this is not a big problem. If they are connected to the wall socket, a regular extension cable can be used. For large commercial real estate, this is not ideal.


Microwave ovens and dryers use special wires, so it is important to ensure that the generator has a socket first. Secondly, a sufficiently long wire is required. The longer the price of this specialized wire, the higher the price.


There will also be traffic congestion. And if the wires are aged or damaged, there is also a risk of falling and electric shock. That is to say, if you only care about the power supply of one or two devices and they do not require long cables, then if you are careful, you can solve the problem through plug and play settings.


This is a type of conversion switch, as it generates electrical energy from generation to distribution to equipment through the electrical safety box of the building.


The converter is installed on the outside of the building and on the other side of the wall connected to the fuse. The converter has built-in safety features. To keep the generator and fuse box energized, the power supply from the power company must be turned off first.


This safety function uses a manual slider, and the power company's switch is also turned on, which can actually prevent the generator's switch from turning on. This can prevent current feedback into the system and generator.
