Diesel Generator Servicing
A diesel generator is a diesel-electric system that powers an electrical generator to produce electricity. Diesel generators are located at places where there is no electricity supply from the electrical grid or for emergency supply if there is a problem with the normal electricity supply.
Diesel generator is often referred as generator set or genset for short, which is a combination of diesel generator with its supporting equipment, such as base, canopy, control system, sound attenuation, circuit breaker, starting system, exhaust system, diesel fuel supply.
Another main type of generator commonly used is the petrol generator. There is more choice of models for petrol generators. But diesel generators last longer and are less likely to fail. Diesel engines use less fuel and they can also emit less CO2 over time. It all depends for how long you are using your generator. Traditionally, diesel has been more expensive than petrol but the balance is certainly tipping.
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.
