Abstract
A diesel-generator set is the combination of a diesel engine with an electric generator (often an alternator) to generate electrical energy. The library of TiSoft ElectricalDesign contains various diesel-generators available in the market.

What is a Diesel-Generator set

A diesel-generator set is the combination of a diesel engine with an electric generator (often an alternator) to generate electrical energy. A diesel compression-ignition engine often is designed to run on fuel oil, but some types are adapted for other liquid fuels or natural gas.
Diesel generating sets are used in places without connection to a power grid, or 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.

Diesel-Generator sets library

As shown in the working form below Diesel-Genarators is a member of equipment libraries which in turn is part of ElectricalDesign reference libraries. TiSoft ElectricalDesign makes continuous reference to these libraries for any project calculation, sizing, drafting etc..

The working form is divided into 5 sections as follows:

  1. The navigation tree with Diesel-Generator series
  2. Solar module common properties e.g.:
    • Phases: 3
    • Rated voltage: 400 V
  3. The Excel-like grid includes all series models with their details such as:
    • Model name: LPC235SM
    • Rated power: 70 kVA
  4. The list with related links. Click on to visit the pages in your browser:
    • manufacturer datasheets
    • installation manuals etc.
    • manufacturer webpage for further information
  5. An indicative picture of diesel-generator
