Tips on Maintaining diesel generator & Backup Power Gensets

IMG_2202-33-10

Diesel Generator – – It is no doubt that gensets tops the list when it comes to supplying power both to the industrial and household needs. They come in handy and at the time of power interruption and is highly in demand throughout the country. Generators can last for long period if proper maintenance is done. It is not that complicated to keep a generator maintained for long period. Most of its parts require lubrication and oiling and it can last for longer period of time. One can go for proper check of the machine if required. But normally these do not need that much of attention and normally last for longer period of time. Larger companies who own many generators, or those who rely on Dg sets  extensively for power generation, may require an in-house engineer to maintain their gensets. Small business companies, or users who own a generator to provide backup power in the event of an outage, may establish annual maintenance contracts (AMC) with generator dealers to maintain their generators.

In either instance, the life-cycle of power generators is well established and documented making routine maintenance fairly straight-forward. Best generator maintenance practice is following the maintenance schedule provided by the manufacturer of the generator.

Sudhir Power has carved a distinctive niche as a leader in the manufacturing of generators and setting up of diesel base captive power plants up to 20MW. Wide range of Gensets ranging from 7.5-3000 KVA in diesel and gas fuel options

“Queen of Hills”, as Shimla was fondly called by the British is on the track of development. Its well-developed facilities, easy accessibility and numerous attractions make it one of Indian’s most popular hill-stations. But several times Shimla, Manali and Dalhousie these area cut off from the rest of Himachal Pradesh due to the heavy snowfall that snap the Electricity supply , power lines damage due to falling trees. no electricity supply, putting tremendous pressure on the government & Long power cuts further deteriorate the situations and this directly impacts the tourist business.

 “Bad thing is no electricity….Who cares!

generator

  
In the prevailing situation local people and hotel & Resort bussiness have found alternative to become self-reliant in electricity. The use of a Diesel generator in Himachal Pradesh has increased tremendously in recent years. People, hotel business and tourist places are becoming highly depended on them. Long power cuts and frequent interruption are the causes behind the high sale of DG sets in the cites. They are a reliable source of power ensuring the individual using them regular a supply of power. They are available in different specifications and an individual can choose them according to their business and electricity requirement.

With advancement in technology they are becoming more efficient in generating electricity and can generate more electricity in less quantity of fuel. They can supply uninterrupted electricity for almost eight hours a day and support vital equipments such as air conditioner, lights, fans and other important machinery vital for smooth running of hotel business and offices.

Sometimes Rain lashes lower areas of Himachal Pradesh such as Dharamsala, Palampur, Solan, Nahan, Bilaspur, Una, Hamirpur and Mandi, bringing down the temperatures.

More than residents, it were offices and commercial establishments, which were affected severely by an unscheduled power cut as their working was hit towards the evening. Generators in Shimla today are synonymous with uninterrupted supply of power. Companies are manufacturing these machines are making their products more technologically advanced and user friendly. This is the reason that today the companies are manufacturing silent generator sets for their usage in offices and malls.

Not only diesel gensets are  being used in business and offices but also in household for supplying power. Mostly in household usage portable diesel generators are used, they can be easily set up and moved from one place to another. So the dependency of people has grown sharply in the recent years this shows the inability of government.

How the use of Diesel generators has grown significantly simultaneously with other develop cities. For more information you could visit the website: http://www.sudhirpower.com/

Right buying decision facilitated by reliable Generator  set manufacturer & suppliers

IMG_2691.jpg

Right buying decision facilitated by reliable Generator  set manufacturer & suppliers Interruption in electricity supply is a humdrum affair today. It is more common in many city in summers or winters when demand of electricity is high. No industrial unit is complete without power back-up facilitated mostly by Cummins power generators of high capacity. Today, residences, hospitals, institutes, factories, offices, trade buildings, and more premises use these engines for uninterrupted supply of electrical energy.

Before you buy such a system, it is important to know the details, specifications, benefits, and related paraphernalia that well meet the application purpose. Meeting a facility’s loads is not only facilitated by the KVA specification. There are various other features that need to be considered. Because every home or business is different so are the variances in the electrical devices and equipment used.

Quick check list:

Understand & analyse your power back-up needs, before deciding genset rating and specification

Evaluate the options of single large DG set v/s multiple small sets

Check technical & commercial benefits of system integration

Check the site conditions meet Genset’s requirements for optimal performance

shortlisted Genset brand has proven capability for supporting your Genset for next 15 year

Assess the likely maintenance costs or running cost

Check the service support availability for the Genset

Two types of these engines – portable and stand-by are used today. The latter variety is more widely used. While portable options are used temporarily used in areas where there is no electricity, stand-by alternatives are installed permanently outside a premise. Stand-by Sudhir gensets detect electricity outage automatically and accordingly get activated immediately. They are generally plugged to the main electrical line of a premise.

Selecting a Power Generating Set (Genset) is hardly a case of rough calculations. Every electrical system and place of operation has unique characteristics that depends upon frequency and duration of power outage and sequence of loading.

The Environmental Protection Agency regulators have enforced standards, making it mandatory for manufacturers to develop emission compliant engines to minimize air pollution. Engine emission data is incorporated in stand-by options; ensure that the engine you buy comply to appropriate emission standards. Consider manufacturing dates including tier levels. There are engines available in the market that are oversized but rated with lower tier levels; these are affordably priced. Buying these, you not only affect the environment but may be subjected to violation of code if inspected by the local authority. Look for DG set suppliers that deliver products with proper emission standards as per MOEF and other norms.

It is easily understood that fuel efficiency of a large Diesel Generator running at 40% load is always lower, as compared to a smaller Genset running at 80% load! Running a smaller Genset at such times saves you substantial fuel costs.

Your electrial back-up engine should be fuel efficient even at normal operating loads. It should deliver optimum performance without noise, meeting your long-term power needs without fail. Besides being incorporated with heavy duty features, its turbo-matching should be optimized. Durability and lowest life cycle costs should not be compromised. Choosing a reliable supplier can help you take the right buying decision.
