  • Regular Cleaning Operation of Diesel Generator Filter May 06, 2023
      Regular cleaning of the filter of a diesel generator can help maintain the engine's efficiency and prolong its service life. The type of filter used in the diesel generator affects the cleaning process. There are three types of filters commonly used in Starlight diesel generators: felt filter, high pressure slot filter, and paper filter element type filter.   The felt filter is composed of a metal mesh, a silk cloth cover, and a felt filter piece. The filter element is installed in the filter body and is composed of several thicker and thinner pieces that are alternately installed on the filter screen. The fuel enters the inner cavity between the filter element and the housing from the fuel inlet pipe, and then flows into the inner cavity of the metal mesh through the felt filter and the silk cloth sleeve. The air is collected in the upper part of the filter, and the bleeder cock is used to release air from the oil chamber and filter the air in the fuel.   The high pre...
  • Generator Fuel Consumption Calculator May 06, 2023
      When using a diesel generator set, many users are concerned about its fuel consumption. In general, a 500KW diesel generator set consumes about 127 liters of fuel per hour, and the size of the load has little impact on it. However, higher loads result in higher throttle and greater fuel consumption, while smaller loads result in smaller relative fuel consumption. The key to fuel efficiency lies in proper maintenance and good condition of the diesel generator set. If the cylinder liner and piston are worn, fuel consumption will be affected. It is also important to consider the performance of the diesel generator set itself.   To calculate the fuel consumption of a 200KW diesel generator set operating for eight hours, we need to know the specific diesel engine that is used. For example, a 6 cylinder Cummins Engine 6LTAA8.9G2 is commonly used for a 200KW generator set. The fuel consumption of diesel engines generally about 220 g/kW/h, depending on the brand and machine. For in...

  • How to Test if the Battery in My Generator is Dead? Apr 14, 2023
      If you suspect that the battery in your generator is dead, here are some steps you can take to test it:   Check the voltage: Use a multimeter to check the voltage of the battery. A fully charged battery should read around 12.6 volts. If the voltage is lower than 12 volts, the battery may be discharged.   Load test: A load test can determine if the battery can deliver the required amount of current to start the generator. To perform a load test, connect a load tester to the battery and measure the voltage while applying a load. If the voltage drops significantly while the load is applied, the battery may not be able to deliver the required current to start the generator.   Visual inspection: Inspect the battery for any signs of damage, corrosion or leakage. If the battery terminals are corroded, clean them with a wire brush and a solution of baking soda and water.   Check the electrolyte levels: If your battery is not a maintenance-free type, check the electro...
