The packaged combination of a diesel engine, a generator and various ancillary devices (such as base, canopy, sound attenuation, control systems, circuit breakers, jacket water heaters and starting system) is referred to as a “generating set” or a “genset” for short. The generating sets are used in places without connection to the power grid, as emergency power-supply if the grid fails, as well as for more complex applications such as peak-lopping, grid support and export to the power grid.
Generating sets are selected based on the electrical load they are intended to supply, the electrical loads total characteristics kWe, kVA, var and harmonic content including starting currents (normally from motors) and non-linear loads.
Set sizes range from 8 to 30 kW (also 8 to 30 kVA single phase) for homes, small shops and offices with the larger industrial generators from 8 kW (11 kVA) up to 2,000 kW (2,500 kVA three phase) used for large office complexes, factories. Diesel generators, sometimes as small as 200 kW (250 kVA) are widely used not only for emergency power, but also many have a secondary function of feeding power to utility grids either during peak periods, or periods when there is a shortage of large power generators.
Power V can provide you gensets for homes, hospitals, buildings, small and large offices and factories according to your needs. Gensets can also suffer damage as a result of misapplication or misuse and due to aging. Power V also offers maintenance and rehabilitation of genset. We have highly skilled and technical people to do the thing and give you an excellent quality service.
