In today’s world, electricity is as basic and as necessary for survival as food, clothing or shelter. Though the majority of our lives’ aspects are dependent on electric power, but there's no denying that we do experience power outages. It’s inevitable. We haven’t reached that state of perfection in terms of power supply/distribution, as of yet. Now, think of an FMCG outfit dealing with processing food products that require constant refrigeration or a hospital where several appliances are dependent on electricity to operate. A power outage in such establishments could cause chaos and result in consequential financial catastrophes. This precedent holds true -- varying in degrees of complication -- for every setting and scenario, be it a household birthday party, a restaurant in its peak hours or a movie theatre amidst a screening. Power outages are always unpleasant. This is where generators or gensets kick in. Generators are basically machines which provide … [Read more...] about Diesel Generators vs CNG Generators: Which type of generator would be most suitable for you and why?
Diesel car vs electric car
How do Diesel Generators work? A diesel generator is used to generate electric energy by using a diesel engine with the help of an electric generator. Diesel gensets convert the mechanical energy generated by the diesel engine into electricity using alternators. An alternator comprises of a rotor (a moving component that produces rotating magnetic field) and a stator (a stationary set of electrical conductors wound in coils over an iron ore). The rotor generates a moving magnetic field around the stator and thus voltage difference is induced between the windings of a stator. This is how electricity is produced by the generator. Features of Diesel Generators Power Output: The power output range of diesel generators is very wide and can be classified accordingly. Diesel generators used for industrial purposes are generally large in size and can provide a great deal of power for a long period of time. They are generally used by industries where power demand is high. Whereas diesel … [Read more...] about Diesel generators: Most preferred and dependable source of backup power across world
What is a Diesel Generator? A diesel generator is used to generate electric energy by using a diesel engine along with an electric generator. A diesel generator can be used as an emergency power supply in case of power cuts or in places where there is no connection with the power grid. Types of Diesel Generators Diesel generators are available in various sizes, models and designs that are manufactured by many companies. So before buying a diesel generator, here are the different types that you should know about: Industrial or Residential – Industrial generators are generally large in size and can provide a great deal of power for a long period of time. As the name suggests, they are generally used in industries where power demand is high. On the other hand, residential generators are small in size and provide power up to a specific range. They are ideal for use in households, small shops and offices. Air cooled or Water cooled – Air-cooled generators rely on air to … [Read more...] about Diesel Generators: Everything you need to know before buying one
India is a developing nation with several large industries coming up in the country. Some of the top multinational companies have their industrial plants and factories in India. However, Indian industries face a perennial problem of power shortage. The demand for electricity is much greater than its supply thereby forcing these factories to use generators to bridge the gap. Until recently, diesel generators were the most commonly used generators. The efficiency of diesel generators is well known, but they have their disadvantages as well. Diesel generator working principle is such that they invariably cause a lot of noise. Also, the exhaust fumes from diesel generators cause environmental pollution. There are alternatives available which use natural gas or LPG instead of diesel as fuel. However, these fossil-based fuels are in constant danger of depletion. Under such circumstances, solar generators provide the best alternative for these conventional generators. Let us now take a look … [Read more...] about Why several large companies in India are opting for solar powered generators over conventional diesel generators
Applicability of the emission limits These standards shall be applicable to all the gensets that are manufactured, assembled or imported to India. These are not applicable to gensets that are manufactured for the purpose of export to other countries or to gensets that are used as a sample (max no. of samples limited to four and should be exported back within three months). Certification Requirement Every manufacturer, importer or assembler of diesel generators need to possess a Type Approval certificate for each product and a COP (Conformity of Product) certificate for each series of product. The COP certificate needs to be validated each year (From 1st July to 30th June). Without valid certificates, manufacturers shall not be allowed to sell, import or assemble any diesel generator. The users should also make sure that they buy gensets only from the manufacturer who has valid Type Approval and COP. Conformance Labelling Requirement Every genset user and manufacturer must pay heed … [Read more...] about Permissible emission limit and other CPCB regulations that diesel generator manufacturers and users need to be aware of
