Mar. 07, 2024

In the event of load overload and unexpected power outages, standby diesel generators have been widely used as backup power supply equipment in various industries. For modern enterprises, more and more choose to equip backup diesel generator sets because it is related to the survival of the enterprise. When a company experiences a power outage or overload, backup power can be provided in a timely manner to avoid devastating impacts caused by power problems, or to lose customers or lucrative contracts. Diesel generators play an important role here. However, diesel generators, as an infrastructure investment for enterprises, have high costs and should be chosen with caution. So, how do you ensure to buy the diesel generator that best suits your company's needs? What factors are considered when looking for high-quality generators? Today, Dingbo Power will share with friends some methods and techniques for purchasing and selecting backup diesel generators:

Firstly, if the power of the diesel generator you choose is not appropriate, there may be premature failures, capacity overload, shortened equipment life, and danger. So when purchasing a backup generator, there are many factors to consider, especially when choosing a power source.


If your company or factory is considering purchasing a new backup diesel generator (or replacing an existing generator), you need to determine if its power is appropriate.


At present, there are many major diesel generator set brands in the market, including domestic and foreign diesel generator sets such as Yuchai, Shangchai, Cummins, Volvo, etc. When making a purchase decision, you need to determine your power generation needs so that you can choose the most suitable diesel generator. At present, in the general market, the power range of existing industrial diesel generator sets is 20-3000kW. The power range of the engine is 150HP to 4000HP, and you also need to decide whether you need a single-phase generator or a three-phase generator.


Therefore, for new users, before purchasing a diesel generator set, they first need to understand the meaning of unit backup, motor start, single-phase or three-phase, kW or KVA.


Firstly, we need to understand various different generator powers. This type of power equipment is classified by capacity level. In industrial applications, the power of generators ranges from 20kW to 3000kW, or rather a small power plant. It is usually better to choose a higher power than assumed.


Secondly, consider the type of fuel. Diesel engines can adapt to various environments. For example, in cold environments, diesel is a better choice because it is not easy to freeze. Studying these possibilities can help you choose the right machine to handle most of the situations that businesses may face.


Thirdly, the generator brand is reliable. Generally speaking, due to the instability of the main power supply, frequent power outages, interruptions in public grid power supply, or interruptions in public grid power supply, or the use of backup power systems as a preventive measure, diesel generators are usually required to be installed. Regardless of the application, the diesel generator set can start normally without any faults when there is a sudden power outage in the city. Therefore, do not choose unknown cheap brands just to save money. Collaborating with mature generator manufacturers who have been tested and have a good record can avoid problems during unit operation, which can affect power supply.
