Perkins Diesel Generator


A diesel generator is the combination of a diesel engine with an electrical generator (often


called an alternator) to generate electrical energy. Diesel 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. Sizing of diesel generators is critical to avoid low-load or a shortage of power and is


complicated by modern electronics, specifically non-linear loads.


Perkins Series Diesel Generator Sets


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.


Generator sets sizes range from 8 to 30 kW (also 8 to 30 kVA single phase) for homes, small


shops & offices with the larger industrial generators from 8 kW (11 kVA) up to 2,000 kW


(2500 kVA three phase) used for large office complexes, factories.


Supporting main utility grids


In addition to their well known role as power supplies during power failures, diesel generator


sets also routinely support main power grids worldwide in two distinct ways:


Peak lopping


Maximum demand tariffs in many areas encourage the use of diesels to come on at times of


maximum demand. In Europe this is typically on winter weekdays early evening peak when


cooking and lights are on as people come home—around 5:30–7:00 PM, whereas in the


United States this is often in the summer to meet the air conditioning load.


Grid support


Emergency standby diesel generators, for example such as those used in hospitals, water


plant, are, as a secondary function, widely used in the US and the UK (Short Term Operating


Reserve) to support the respective national grids at times for a variety of reasons.


This is extremely beneficial for both parties - the diesels have already been purchased for


other reasons; but to be reliable need to be fully load tested. Grid paralleling is a convenient


way of doing this. This method of operation is normally undertaken by a third party aggregator


who manages the operation of the generators and the interaction with the system operator.
