When purchasing a diesel generator set, it is not enough to only pay attention to its performance, price, fuel consumption and energy, but also to understand the main points of selecting the power of diesel generator set. In this regard, many users have little knowledge and confuse diesel power generation. The role of the main power in the unit.

Main power: The main power of a diesel generator set is also called continuous power or long-travel power. In China, the main power is generally used to identify diesel generator sets, while in the world, standby power is also called Maximum power is used to identify diesel generator sets. In the market, irresponsible manufacturers often use maximum power as continuous power to introduce and sell diesel generator sets. This has caused many users to misunderstand these two concepts.

Continuous power: Diesel generator sets are rated in our country with main power, that is, continuous power. The maximum power that diesel generator sets can use continuously within 24 hours is called continuous power, and in a certain period of time, The standard is that there is a 10% overload on the basis of continuous power for 1 hour within every 12 hours. The power of the diesel generator set at this time is what we usually call the maximum power, that is, the standby power, that is, if you buy Is the main diesel generator set with 400kw, then you can run to 440kw in 1 hour within 12 hours. If you buy a spare 400kw diesel generator set, if you don’t overload it, you usually drive it at 400kw. Diesel generator sets are always in overload state (because the actual rated power of the diesel generator sets is only 360KW), which is very unfavorable to diesel generator sets, which will shorten the life of diesel generator sets and increase the failure rate.
