Generator Diesel

Generator Diesel What are the advantages of diesel generators? The same advantages of diesel cars and trucks. Dan W. knows firsthand those advantages as the operator of a trucking outfit. "Diesel engines are dependable. They are built heavier and more sturdy because they use compression in the engine instead of spark plugs. They are much more fuel efficient," says Dan. "The biggest advantage of diesel engine is the fuel savings in running a diesel engine over a gas engine. All full-sized semi-trucks are diesel. Fuel costs would put you out of business if you used a gas engine."

Generator diesel engines have the same advantages as truck diesel engines. Diesel generators effectively fill the need for emergency, backup, recreational, municipal, and industrial power. Generator diesel uses can include emergency back up power, automatic standby generator power, RV and recreation generators, and work site generators. Farmers also rely on back up power for important functions such as powering milking machines.

Diesel Generating Sets Depending on the wattage rating, diesel generating sets can be used for basic home back up power or heavy-duty industrial applications. Generator diesel power from just a 200kW diesel genset can supplement a power grid at peak times.

Generator diesel power is an efficient, dependable and cost-effective choice for power. While diesel generators range in size and wattage from generators diesel portable to full-sized automatic stanby diesel generators, diesel engines operate most effectively at a full loal. Diesel engines are designed to work hard. A diesel power generator needs to operate regularly to keep the engine efficient. The minimum recommendation for operating generator diesel is 30 minutes every 30 days at 70%-80% load. Remember, diesel generator sets are designed to work! Regular operation of power generator disel will avoid over-fueling of the fuel injectors and will reduce any carbon built up from light loads.power generators diesel

The same principle of running a disel engine applies whether it is a power generator diesel or a diesel truck engine. Diesel engines are meant to be used! “Diesel engines work hard and have long lives,” says Dan W.

Skip Thomsen uses diesel generators on his property and writes for He reports an 8kW diesel generator run at 75% capacity burns 1 gallon of diesel fuel every 4 hours. To get an idea of the size of diesel generator you’ll need, consider these estimates for power usage. All estimates are based on surge power and assume you will be starting up every appliance at the same time:

-An 8kW generator diesel provides roughly enough power for 4 60-watt light bulbs, a refrigerator, microwave, computer, and a small air conditioning unit!

-1,500 watts of power (and a surge protector!) will power 3 75-watt light bulbs and a computer.

-4,500 watts will power a microwave, computer, 4 75-watt light bulbs, a T.V., and refrigerator.

-20kW will be required to run all the electrical functions of a modest household, including air conditioning.

-10kW will power an air compressor and 4 power tools.

By choosing the right capacity of diesel generator and running it regularly, you can be assured to have power when you need it, whether it is for work, fun, or emergency.
