Types of Diesel Generator

Oct. 09, 2021

Diesel generators are used to generate electricity through the use of diesel engines and generators. Diesel generators can be used as emergency power where there is a power failure or where there is no connection to the grid. 

 

Types of diesel generator

Many companies produce diesel generators in a variety of sizes, models and designs. Therefore, before buying a diesel generator you should be aware of the different types.

 

Industrial or residential - Industrial generators are usually larger in size and can provide large amounts of power for long periods of time. As the name implies, they are usually used in industries with high demand for electricity. Residential generators, on the other hand, are small and can provide up to a specific range of electricity. They are well suited to homes, small shops and offices.

Applications of Diesel Generator

Air-cooled or water-cooled - Air-cooled generators rely on air to provide cooling for the generator. There are no components other than the use of an air intake system. Water cooled generators rely on water for cooling and contain a separate system for this function. Water cooled generators require more maintenance than air cooled generators.

 

Power output - Diesel generators have a wide range of power outputs and can be classified accordingly. A 3 kVA diesel generator can be used to run power tools or appliances such as AC, computers, multiple ceiling fans etc. They are suitable for small offices, shops and homes. A 2000 kVA diesel generator, on the other hand, is suitable for large industries or where there is a high demand for electricity.

 

Power supply - It is important to know the requirements of the home/business before buying a diesel generator. Depending on the needs of the premises, generators from 2.5 kVA to 2000 kVA and above can be used.

What type of motor should you choose for your generator set?

Generator sets are equipped with an internal combustion engine. Depending on your needs and the type of fuel available, you can choose between petrol, diesel or gas engines.

 

Petrol generator sets are usually compact, quiet and versatile. Typically, these generator sets have a low power rating of up to 6 kW and provide single-phase current.


Diesel generator sets are more suitable for extended or even continuous use outdoors, for example on construction sites. They are more economical than petrol generator sets of the same power. These generator sets can be supplied with single-phase, three-phase or mixed currents.
