Diesel Generator Repairs
A diesel generator is the combination of a diesel engine with an electric generator, often an alternator to generate electrical energy. This is a specific case of engine-generator. A diesel engine generator is usually designed to run on diesel fuel, but there are other types that run on other liquid fuels or natural gas.
Another main type of generator commonly used is the petrol generator. As the cost of petrol is lower than diesel, there are a few pros for using a petrol generator. There is more choice of models for petrol generators. But diesel generators last longer and are less likely to fail.
Depending on your requirement there are generators from small portable diesel generators up to large-scale backup diesel generators for a high performing, reliable performance. Diesel generators are ideal for construction sites, commercial or farming, and can be customised to suit any application, big or small.
Diesel generating sets are used in places without connection to a power grid, or as emergency power-supply if the grid fails, as well as for more complex applications such as grid support and export to the power grid.
Generators play a key role in many households, businesses, industrial organisations and commercial settings, especially during emergencies, power interruptions or events. These equipments can also be used as the primary source of power in regions where access to a main source of power is not feasible. As generators play a very important role in the functioning of a number of systems, broken down or unreliable generators pose major problems, unexpected costs and stressful delays.
Even though diesel generators last longer, they don’t last forever. To avoid power failures and unexpected costs, it is important to repair / replace the parts that don’t work.
