The fuel consumption of diesel generators has always been the focus of customer attention. Many customers directly inquire about the fuel consumption of diesel generators. The fuel consumption of generators is generally related to two aspects, one is the fuel consumption rate of the generator itself, and the other is the size of the load. Many customers believe that the fuel consumption of the unit is directly proportional to the load. Today, Fengfa Power will give you an answer that this concept is incorrect.

Generally people think that diesel generator sets of the same brand and the same model will consume more fuel when the load is larger, and the fuel consumption will be smaller when the load is smaller. Generally speaking, this statement is true, but in special cases, To be different, a set of data was found for this front, everyone can refer to:

The general actual situation is that at 80% load, the fuel consumption is the lowest. If the load of the diesel generator set is 80% of the rated load, one liter of oil generates 3.5 kWh of electricity. If the load increases, the fuel consumption will increase. This is people It is often said that the fuel consumption of a diesel generator is directly proportional to the load. However, if the load is less than 20%, it will have an impact on the diesel generator set, which will not only greatly increase the fuel consumption of the generator set, but also damage the generator set.

Therefore, it is not absolute that the fuel consumption and load of diesel generators are proportional. If you want to reduce the fuel consumption of the diesel generator set, you can let the unit run at about 80% of the rated load. Do not run at low load for a long time, otherwise the increase in fuel consumption will cause little damage to the unit.

In addition, Cummins generators, Yuchai diesel generators, Shangchai diesel generators, Volvo generators, Perkins generators, and Mercedes-Benz generators provided by Fengfa Power Equipment Co., Ltd. all have automatic functions, that is, automatic start and automatic shutdown For details, please click:
