Precautions Before And During Operation Of Diesel Generator Set

Jul. 28, 2022

Generally speaking, diesel generator sets can output rated power under standard atmospheric conditions (atmospheric pressure 100KPa, ambient temperature 25°C, relative humidity 30%), and can work continuously for 12 hours. It can work reliably under the environmental conditions of ambient temperature 5~40℃, altitude less than 1000 meters, and relative humidity less than 90%. In this article, the generator manufacturer will analyze several matters that should be paid attention to before and during the operation of the diesel generator set.


Precautions before starting the diesel generator set.

1. All diesel generator sets provided by Jiangsu Starlight Electricity Equipments Co.,Ltd. have been run-in, and users can directly use them with load. When using them for the first time, the recommended load is 80-90% of the unit capacity.


2. Remove dust, water, oil and rust attached to the surface of the unit.


3. Check whether the mechanical connecting parts and fasteners are loose, check whether the rotating parts of each moving part are alive, and whether there is any phenomenon such as friction and jamming. Check the connection of each wire, whether the wiring is firm and correct, whether the contact is reliable, and whether there is looseness or falling off.


4. Check whether the fuel storage in the fuel tank meets the requirements of the specified running time of the diesel generator set.

5. Turn on the switch from the fuel tank to the diesel fuel delivery pump, and use the fuel hand pump to remove the air from the fuel system.


6. Check whether there is enough oil in the diesel engine oil pan, fuel injection pump and governor.


7. Check whether the cooling water in the cooling water tank is full. The water inlet switch should be turned on for the split-cycle unit.


8. Set the switches on the control panel to the corresponding positions for monitoring the work of the unit, and the automatic air switch should be in the open-circuit position.


Inspection of diesel generator set in operation.

1. When the diesel generator set is working normally, the voltage should be around 400V, and the current should not be greater than the rated current of the generator. The frequency should be about 50 Hz, the water temperature and oil temperature of the diesel engine should not be greater than 95℃, and the oil pressure should be within the range of 0.25-0.35MPa (0.3-0.35MPa for a supercharged diesel engine). When the unit is running, pay attention to their changes at any time. When the specified value is exceeded, part of the load should be removed or the machine should be shut down for inspection.


2. All pipes of the diesel engine should be checked at any time. If there is any damage or leakage, it should be repaired as soon as possible.


3. Observe the exhaust smoke color of the diesel engine. Under the normal condition of the diesel engine running at full load, the exhaust smoke color is allowed to be slightly blue-gray.


4. Do not allow water, oil or metal and other sundries to enter the inside of the generator.


5. If the unit is abnormal and needs to be powered off or shut down immediately, you can press the "emergency stop" button or pull the "manual stop" handle.


6. In the process of use and operation, there must be records, often recording relevant measurement readings, ambient temperature, operation and downtime, reasons for downtime, and results of inspections or temporary repairs.


The above are some matters that should be paid attention to before and during the operation of the diesel generator set organized by Jiangsu Starlight Electricity Equipments Co.,Ltd. for you. In addition, Jiangsu Starlight Electricity Equipments Co.,Ltd. recommends that users should also conduct regular inspection and maintenance of diesel generator sets, because only correct, timely and careful maintenance can ensure the normal operation of diesel generator sets, reduce wear and tear, prevent failures, and prolong the service life of the set , reduce the user's operating costs.
