The instable speed of diesel generating set not only can affect the actual effect of power supply, but also reduces the lifespan of generator parts, which leads to reduction of final durable years. Therefore, the speed problem is worthy of users” attention. We all know that there are so many kinds of diesel generators all over the world and countless of diesel generators are applied in many fields. These views or opinions we have have been staying in our mind all the time. However, when you look upon it from another way, you will find a brand-new diesel generator. You are likely to find lots of other applications you never know before. This time we are going to redefining diesel generator.

First of all, we have to make it clear that one of the main technical issues when it comes to diesel engine generators is its internal combustion system. It is the generally accepted that the greater part of the energy from fuel is mostly converted into heat instead of useful power. Add this to the fact that some of the power is also used for cooling. Under such conditions, it is essential to point out that the temperature of a diesel engine that is running is much cooler than the internal combustion engine that runs on other fuels. Ergo, more power is transformed into useful power. And the energy required for cooling is greatly reduced.

The compression ratio of diesel generator is why we all think it efficient. The rule is that efficiency of an engine is directly proportional to its compression ratio. Thus, the higher the ration of compression, the better is its efficiency. For diesel engines, the compression ratio ranges from 14:1 to 25:1, whereas the ratio of compression of engines running on gasoline ranges from 8:1 to 12:1. The resulting efficiency from internal combustion system and compression ratio literally translates into decreased fuel costs. In fact, the cost of fuel for engines running on diesel ranges between thirty percent and fifty percent lesser than the cost of fuel for engines running on gasoline.

In addition, there are some advantages of diesel generator. For example low maintenance requirements. This also leads to longer life for diesel engines as opposed to gasoline engines. The main reason for it is the fact that spark plugs are not featured in diesel engines. Thus, regular replacement of the same is not necessary. Another reason is the low temperature feature of diesel engines, which was already discussed above. To complete the picture of an advantageous use of diesel generators, one must debunk a pervasive misconception – that engines that run on diesel, in this case, generators, are smelly and noisy.
