What is diesel generator?
The diesel generator, also known as a diesel genset, combines a diesel engine and an electric generator (alternator) that work together to generate electrical energy. It is a specific engine generator that uses a diesel compression-ignition engine to run on diesel fuel. The diesel engine drives the generator to run, converting the diesel energy into electrical energy. This generator is a backup power source, primarily used during a power outage or in places where grid infrastructure is unavailable, such as India. It can automatically start and provide electricity during power outages.
We have various diesel generators, including 10-300kw, reliable and efficient power sources that use diesel fuel to generate electricity, suitable for applications with different needs.

- Control Panels: This type generator has an advanced control panel that allows users to monitor various parameters, including voltage, frequency, and overall performance.
- Cost: While diesel is generally more expensive than gasoline, diesel engines are more efficient, which can result in lower costs over the long term.
Diesel generator working principle
Here is a breakdown of the working principle :
- Combustion of Diesel: The diesel engine operates on the principle of internal combustion. This combustion process releases energy.
- Conversion of Chemical Energy to Mechanical Energy: The high-temperature and high-pressure gas generated after diesel combustion drives the linear motion of the piston in the cylinder and converts it into rotational motion through the crankshaft. This rotational motion is the mechanical energy produced by the diesel engine.
- Conversion of Mechanical Energy to Electrical Energy: The rotational motion of the engine’s crankshaft is transferred to the alternator. Inside the alternator, there’s a rotor that rotates within a stator. As the rotor spins, it creates a rotating magnetic field. This rotating magnetic field induces a current flow in the stator windings due to electromagnetic induction, producing electrical energy.
- Voltage Regulation: A voltage regulator ensures that the generator’s output voltage remains stable and consistent within the desired limits, regardless of variations in the engine’s speed or load on the generator.
- Distribution of Electrical Energy: Once the electrical energy is generated and regulated, it’s distributed through electrical circuits to power various devices and appliances.
In essence, the diesel generator uses diesel fuel to produce mechanical energy in an engine, which is then converted into electrical energy by an alternator. The principles of internal combustion and electromagnetic induction govern the entire process.
