Generator set: advantages and disadvantages

generator set

Due to the current high costs of conventional electricity, people are looking for alternatives that can be more economical for them to obtain the service. One of the most popular options is the installation of a generator set. For more information on the use of this equipment, you can find it in our post Electric […]

Photovoltaic system and the generator set: which one to choose

photovoltaic system

At this time, we are going through an energy crisis, which makes electrical supply unreliable and costly. In this post, we will conduct a comparative analysis between the most commonly used sources: the photovoltaic system and the generator set. You should know that all alternative sources have their advantages and disadvantages despite being known for […]

Criteria for calculating generator set equipment

The proper selection of generator set equipment is as important as the selection of the generators themselves. Without them, the generator set will not operate or will do so inefficiently. We are referring to the main fuel tank and the daily fuel tank. Also, the coolant compensation tank, oil compensation tank, and the automatic transfer […]

Guidelines for calculating the AC backup generator for DC systems

AC backup generator

The AC backup generator, motogenerator, or power plant, is the main AC support for any installation. It consists of an engine, usually diesel, with a generator coupled to its shaft. Obviously, we are referring to fixed generators, with capacities greater than 20 kVA. To give you some context, we invite you to read our post […]

Generator Set: a solution as an alternative energy source?

power plant

At present, it has become crucial to have the possibility of alternative AC power sources. The most commonly used systems for this purpose are power generation through a generator set or power plant and the photovoltaic system. It is important to clarify that the generator set is also called a “diesel generator,” which, in our […]

Battery discharge test: what is it and what is it for?

The battery discharge test is perhaps one of the most reliable tests you can perform on a battery or a battery bank. It provides a comprehensive insight into the health status of the cells. In this post, we will analyze this test applied to stationary battery technology, with a focus on battery banks. Let’s get […]

Electrical power equipment for telecommunications. Part 2

AC and DC backup equipment

Next we will go into the general operation of electrical power equipment for telecommunications. This refers to the most commonly used backup equipment such as the generator set and batteries to keep the telecommunications infrastructure in operation. With it, AC and DC power supply is ensured in case of commercial power failure. For a better […]
