Electric generators are multifaceted and diverse and as a result, have many takers around the world. They can provide vital power for most emergency situations. The generators are available with different configurations and are categorized according to the manner in which they are used and the amount of power they are expected to generate. These machines can run on various fuels including diesel, gasoline, propane and even natural gas.
Diesel generators are equipped with diesel engines for electricity generation. These generators are ideal for emergencies and locations that donít have a power grid. They can also be used in tough conditions and sophisticated applications such as peak shaving (grid support to the power grid). Electric generators are available in various sizes and thus, you should choose well to avoid low loads or power shortage. Your ideal generator should be capable of handling non linear loads as well. Our models range from 330KW to1000KW and above.
Factors related to electric generators
Diesel generators are typically accompanied by a power source ( a diesel engine), a generator or alternator and other auxiliary devices such as base, circuit breakers, canopy, control systems, jacket water heaters, sound attenuation and starting system. This is collectively referred to as Genset.
Gensets of 8-30 KW power are ideal for homes, small shops and offices. Larger units are better suited for industrial use as well as hospitals, data centers and large office complexes. Industrial generators typically range from 100 KW to 2000KW (2500 KVA three phase). High voltage of about 2000 KW can be provided by a 0 ft ISO container loaded with fuel tank, controls, power distribution and other equipments to distinctively operate as a standalone power station. These single complex power module units are large triple axel trailers that weigh approx 85,000 pounds (38,555 kg). The Gensets are carried separately on trailers for installation at a fixed place. Upon installation, they are connected together with large cables and a control panel with paralleling features to work as a single power unit.
Smaller electric generators of about 500 KW are typically used for emergency power. However, they can also be used for power supply to utility grids during peak periods or when the demand for power is at its peak (5-7 pm for residential applications and 3-5 pm for industrial sites).
Electric generators are also used aboard ships for power generation while at sea. The power generated by these generators is used for the functioning of air conditioners, fans, lights, refrigeration, winches, etc.
Historically, these machines have served a great cause World War I as well as World War II- especially for naval warships. Later, the electric arrangement of diesel generators was used for the development of large road vehicles such as railroad locomotives.
