The Difference Between Backup and Common Use Diesel Generator

Nov. 26, 2021

Today we will give you a brief introduction about the differences between diesel generator backup and common use. If any else you need to know, welcome to visit our website.


How to choose backup and common use: The backup diesel generator is well understood, it is used as a temporary power generation during a power outage. The use frequency is not high, the use time is short, the mechanical loss is low, and the failure is low. Because it is not frequently used, there is no need to blindly pursue high-end diesel generators equipped with imported diesel engines in this case. Generally, diesel generators equipped with domestic diesel engines can fully satisfy the use.

Commonly used diesel generators refer to the use of diesel generators as the main power source when there is no city power. In addition, the use time is long, the mechanical loss is high, and the failure is high. In this case, it is recommended to configure a better diesel generator, either joint venture or imported, but if the number of days is not too long, you can also rent a diesel generator for short-term use.


Diesel generator power selection: The maximum power that can be used continuously within 24 hours of a power generation diesel generator is called continuous power. In a certain period of time, the standard is 1 hour in every 12 hours. The power is overloaded by 10, and the diesel generator power at this time is what we usually call the maximum power, that is, the standby power. That is to say, if you buy a main diesel generator with 300kw, then you will have 12 hours It can run to 330kw within 1 hour. If you buy a spare 300kw diesel generator, if you don’t overload it, you usually turn it on at 300kw. In fact, the diesel generator is always in the overload state (because the diesel generator is actually The rated power is only 270KW), which is very unfavorable for diesel generators, which will shorten the life of diesel generators and increase the failure rate. Therefore, the choice of diesel generator power is to add 10% power reserve on the basis of the user's total load, which is economical and practical.


Another thing to remind consumers is that most internationally, standby power is used, which is different from that in China. Therefore, irresponsible manufacturers often appear in the market to exchange the power of the two to introduce and sell diesel generators. To deceive consumers, be cautious when buying diesel generators. So please go to a regular diesel generator manufacturer with brand agent when you buy it.
