Advantages of Diesel Generator Sets in Operation

Apr. 29, 2022

Today we will briefly introduce the advantages of diesel generator sets in operation.

Many grades of single unit capacity and convenient equipment: The single unit capacity of diesel generator sets ranges from several kilowatts to tens of thousands of kilowatts. According to their use and load conditions, the selectable capacity range is large, which has the advantage of being applicable to various capacity electricity loads. When using diesel generator sets as emergency and backup power sources, one or more units can be used, and the installed capacity is sensitively equipped according to actual needs.

diesel generator maintenance

The unit power is light and the installation is sensitive: the supporting equipment of the diesel generator set is relatively simple, the auxiliary equipment is small, the volume is small, and the weight is light. Taking the high-speed diesel engine as an example, it is generally 820kg/KW, and the steam power unit is more than the diesel engine. more than 4 times larger. Due to the characteristics of diesel generator set, it is sensitive and convenient, and it is easy to move.

Diesel generator sets used as the main power source for independent power supply mostly use independent equipment, while standby or emergency diesel generator sets are generally used together with variable distribution equipment. Because diesel generator sets generally do not operate in parallel with the municipal power grid, and the unit does not require a full water source (the cooling water consumption of the diesel engine is 3482L/(KW.h), which is only 1/10 of that of the steam turbine generator set), and it occupies an area of Small, so the installation of the unit is more sensitive.

High thermal efficiency and low fuel consumption: the effective thermal efficiency of diesel engines is 30%-46%, high-pressure steam turbines are 20%-40%, and gas turbines are 20%·30%. It can be seen that the effective thermal efficiency of diesel engines is relatively high. As a result, its fuel consumption is lower.

Quick start and can reach full power quickly: the diesel engine usually only takes a few seconds to start, and can be brought to full load within 1 minute in emergency mode; in normal working mode, it can be brought to full load within about 510 minutes, while the steam power plant starts from Start up to the normal demand with full load for 34h. The shutdown process of the diesel engine is also very short, and it can be started and stopped frequently. Therefore, the diesel generator set is very suitable as an emergency or backup power source.

Simple operation and convenient maintenance: ordinary staff who have carefully read the instruction manual of the diesel generator set can start the diesel generator set smoothly and carry out the normal maintenance work of the generator set. If the unit is faulty, it can be repaired on-the-fly, which requires fewer repair workers and is convenient for maintenance.

The comprehensive cost of power station establishment and power generation is low: compared with the need to build dams for hydraulic turbine units, steam turbine units to be equipped with boilers, and larger fuel preparation and water disposal systems, diesel power plants have a small footprint, fast construction speed, and low investment costs. low degree. According to the statistics of relevant materials, compared with renewable power generation such as hydropower, wind power and solar power, as well as nuclear power and thermal power generation, diesel power station has the lowest comprehensive combination of establishment and power generation.

Starlight Power was founded in 1974 and is one of the earliest manufacturers of generators and diesel generator sets in China. If you want get more information, please feel free to send email to sales@dieselgeneratortech.com we will pay highly attention on your question.
