Dec. 25, 2021

What should we do if the diesel generating set cable explodes? Cut off the power supply of the ignition cable. The cable catches fire and burns. Regardless of the cause, the power supply should be cut off immediately. Then, according to the path and characteristics of the cable, carefully check to find out the fault point of the cable. At the same time, personnel should be quickly organized to put out the fire. Cut off the power supply of the non-faulty cable when a fire occurs in the cable trench. When the cables in the cable trench catch fire, if the cables laid side by side with the cable trench have obvious fire possibility, the power supply of these cables should be cut off. If the cables are arranged in layers, first cut off the power supply of the heated cable above the fired cable, then cut off the power supply of the cable side by side with the fired cable, and finally cut off the power supply of the cable below the fired cable.

If the high-voltage cables are found to be grounded, rescuers should observe that they must not enter the room within 4m from the fault point, and they must not enter the fault point outdoors.
