Harm From Overload Operation Of 500kw Cummins Diesel Generator Set

Sep. 01, 2022

With the increasing shortage of power resources in recent years, the application of diesel generator sets has become more and more extensive. In particular, the market share of big brand generators such as Cummins, Volvo and Yuchai is increasing year by year. In the process of using diesel generator sets, there are generally strict usage specifications, one of which stipulates that overload operation is not allowed. Why? What harm will 500kw Cummins diesel generator set cause when overloaded for a long time? Let's learn about it with Jiangsu Starlight Electricity Equipments Co.,Ltd.

 

1. Running a 500kw Cummins diesel generator set in a high-load environment will lead to rapid aging of the internal parts of the diesel engine and mechanical fatigue, which will seriously affect the normal use of the unit.

 

2. When the high-load operation reaches the bearing capacity of the 500kw Cummins diesel generator set, the parts inside the body will be deformed by heat, or even damaged, reducing the overall stability of the unit.

 

3. When the overload operation exceeds the bearing capacity of the 500kw Cummins diesel engine, the crankshaft in the diesel engine will break, causing the entire diesel engine to be scrapped.

4. The long-term overload operation of the 500kw Cummins diesel generator set will also lead to more prone to failures such as cylinder pulling and tile burning.

 

5. The long-term overload operation of the 500kw Cummins diesel generator set will cause more serious wear and tear of moving parts and deterioration of the combustion environment of the engine, which will lead to the consequences of the overhaul period ahead of schedule.

 

Overload operation of 500kw Cummins diesel generator set is extremely unsafe behavior, which will leave hidden troubles or directly lead to failures. Therefore, Jiangsu Starlight Electricity Equipments Co.,Ltd. emphasizes that the use of naturally aspirated or supercharged models should minimize the low-load or no-load running time, and stipulate that the minimum load cannot be lower than 25%-30% of the rated power of the unit.
