How to Decrease the Consumption of Diesel Generator

Aug. 27, 2018

The main fuel used in diesel generators is diesel fuel, and the cost of using it continues to rise as oil prices continue to rise. There are many users who are concerned about the fuel consumption of diesel generator sets. So how to use diesel generator more fuel-efficient? What details should you pay attention to in the process of using?

In the operation of diesel generator set, because of the high temperature produced by the relevant parts during combustion, the ash carbon polymer is attached to the valve, valve seat, fuel injector, piston top and so on. Failure to clean up in time will increase fuel consumption and seriously affect the normal operation of the engine. In general, it is best to clear it once a month for 4-6 months. At the same time, the cooling water temperature of diesel generator set should be kept around 45-61 ℃, if the water temperature is too low, it will cause incomplete combustion of diesel oil and increase the load of the machine itself. Cooling water is best to use mineral-free "soft water", that is, not to abuse sewage, muddy water. In addition, the diesel generator set should not be overloaded during operation. It is operated as a pony pulley type overload. Otherwise, it will result in a considerable amount of diesel oil turning into black smoke, without giving full play to its due efficiency, resulting in an increase in fuel consumption, and shortening the service life of relevant components.



In addition to the use details mentioned above, it is also important to carry out regular maintenance and maintenance of diesel generating units in accordance with the maintenance manual. By checking the injection pressure, adjusting the valve clearance, checking the fuel supply time and so on to ensure that the parts and components are always in good operation condition, avoiding the "disease" operation is the key to realize the high efficiency and fuel saving of the diesel generator set.


1. Timely removal of carbon deposits


During the combustion operation of diesel generator, the relevant components produce high temperature, which causes the ash carbon polymer to be attached to the valve, valve seat, injector, piston top and so on. If not cleared in time, it will increase fuel consumption, resulting in an impact on the normal operation of the engine, the general cleaning period of 4-6 months.


2. Keep the temperature of cooling water at 45-65 ℃

If the temperature of cooling water is too low, it will cause incomplete combustion of diesel fuel and increase the load of the machine itself. In addition, the selection of cooling water needs certain conditions, not to use mineral "soft water", such as distilled water, Rain Water, not to use sewage, muddy water.


3. Do not overload


If the diesel engine is overloaded, it will cause some diesel fuel to turn into black smoke, which will not play its due role and increase the fuel consumption. At the same time, it will shorten the service life of the relevant parts and components.


In addition to the above mentioned fuel-saving methods, regular maintenance and maintenance of diesel generators in accordance with the maintenance manual is also very important.


In addition to the operation and maintenance of diesel generators, fuel saving can be achieved by the following three methods.


1. Choose the brand of diesel generator carefully


Why is saving fuel related to the choice of generator brand? Diesel generator set as long as it can generate electricity, right? This is wrong. Take the generator set as an example. The quality of the big brand is guaranteed and the use of the generator is assured. In the event of a problem, the service is reassuring. Famous diesel generator set brand technology mature, far more than a few small brands or miscellaneous brands. Therefore, it is important to choose the right diesel generator brand.


2. Minimize the use frequency of diesel generators.


Do not run the diesel generator set as much as possible, minimize the time and times to use it. Diesel generators generate electricity far higher than State Grid. So try to reduce the use of it, but do not use generating units should also pay attention to the maintenance of generating sets.


3. Don't select cheap only


Pay attention to maintenance when using diesel generator set. When the generator manufacturer tells us we need a major repair or a medium repair, do not think that there is no trouble to ignore it. Users must not covet small cheap, must contact the factory to carry on the maintenance, such ability reduces the unnecessary diesel fuel wastage.


The above three points are mainly to remind everyone of the fuel saving method of diesel generator set from the purchasing stage. The quality, use effect, energy saving and environmental protection effect of diesel generator set are mostly linked to the genset price. Users should consider synthetically, careful choice, avoid fall into price trap, bring trouble for later use.
