5 Key Factors to Consider Before Buying Generators

Purchasing generators it’s not complicated one but before know very well about generators usages and models. There are many great
advantages to purchasing generators new generators or buy a rental  generator.

Mainly, Nowadays diesel generators like Mahindra powerol generators, Kirloskar generator, Ashok Leyland and Cummins used in retail shops, factory, automobile manufacturing companies, shopping malls, all commercial building, shopping complex, school and colleges mainly used generators for sudden power cuts happens on working hours it will affect the productivity.
So, choosing generators models based on your usage of electricity per day because it’s used for what range of power load consuming
generators you need to buy.

Know more about types of generators here it will help you to buy right generator machine for you,

There are five types of generators avail, Diesel Generator, Natural gas generator, electric generator, propane generator and gas generator.

Some of the key factors must be analyzing for before purchasing a generator:

#1 Age, Hours, and Usage: First things you can try to check is the hours, age and history of the generator set. A check must how many hours generator is running then how much of fuel consumption taken on it. Usually, generator engines are just like a car and have an odometer reading.

A generator that has been used as a standby or backup power source will typically be better maintained and have much less wear than the one used as a prime power source. Only the technical expertise is to know about the full features and specification of generators. So better you have to ask to advice from technical expertise before buying generator.

#2 Manufacturer history and reputation: Nowadays, number of generator manufacturing international companies in the market some companies have good customer satisfaction, rating and have good product delivery performance other companies performing very low in
last 5 years or more days.

Better learn more about company’s history it will help you to take correct decision making for purchasing the right product from the right
place. Mostly prefer 10 to 20 more years of field experience in generators providing companies and know more  shaktiman equipments Pvt ltd  one of leading generator supplier of last 3 decades.

3# How To maintain Genset?
This is much more important since a well-maintained and rebuilt generator set will have a much longer life than one that is simply
changing hands from dealers to end-user.

4# Physical wear and tear on the unit

Following Steps For Maintenance:

Step 1: Visual Inspection

The generator comes under mechanical device suffers wear and tear during operation time. Check regularly all mechanical component
inside the parts and spares of the generator.

Step 2: Replace bearings and bushings Replace bearing and bushings means stress during the generator operation and it is very difficult to test these parts for any stress they have been subjected to during the operation of the generator. Therefore, from a safety point of view, the replacement of bearings and bushings is the best course of action. The same goes for bolts and fasteners.

Step 3: Integrity check wiring and welds Test wire insulations for a breakdown. Any part not up to the mark
should be replaced.

Step 4: Load Test
Load test helps you to determine the overall efficiency in an electric power generator. The load limits specified how many power hours,
electricity consumption during operation.

Types Of Diesel Generators And Usage

Diesel generators are usually located in gravel with concrete pad in engine rooms, with careful attention to ensuring that failure of a component. So the site planning is an important one in generator fixing before the plan and creates the site layouts based on the location of placing generators.

Because it will be calculated by square feet if you have 15 X 15 ground spaces you only fix on the portable size of generators. The site preparation first needs to develop placement like concrete pad design and concrete anchors.

Fixing diesel generators is various types and size different based to decide on fixing generators.

How generators work and what are the benefits of generators?

Diesel generators created with a lot of essential things. It will be working on backup power sources that convert fuel supply usually propane, diesel into electrical energy.

it is a primary source of electrical supply during power outages. this energy is used in external circuits.

Types Of Generators:

Mainly three types of generator models: portable, inverter and standby. All these generators are long-term used features

  1. Portable Generator
  2. Inverter Generator
  3. Standby Generator

Portable Generators:

It is comfortable placing all places and used mainly in local area shops like hotels, stores, car and bike showrooms.

Wide range of capacities in a portable generator like combustion engine to conduct electricity, plug into electrical appliances & tool sockets, With wired facility’s sub-panels.

Portable Generator is enough to run televisions, air conditioners, computers and refrigerators, so the engine should run at 3600 rpm its stand to run 18 hours.

Portable Diesel Generators

Inverter Generator:

An inverter generator produces more AC electrical energy per engine rotation so the raw electricity transforms into DC power.

The running watts of inverter generator starts 2800 to 3100 watts – weight is 96.6 Lbs, starts 3100 to 3400 watts – weight is 95 Lbs, starts 2600 to 3000 watts – weight is 90 Lbs, starts 2800 to 3100 watts – weight is 81 Lbs.

Used mainly in local area shops like home, hotels, stores, car & bike showrooms and commercial buildings.

Standby Generator:

A standby generator is operating automatically transfer switch that power a device. To start the generator automatically during power loss.
Liquid propane and natural gas with an internal combustion engine.Sensing the power cuts within seconds boots up electricity run automatically this is main specifications standby generators.

Parts Of Diesel engines:

The diesel generators are the combination of a diesel engine so the generator generates electric energy.

Two Parts Of Diesel Engines:

  1. Engine
  2. Alternator


The engine is started by DC Start motor is using it will help to start engines also the arrangement is fitted in engine self start arrangement, radiator arrangement, air filter and Lub oil arrangement.


The alternator is used to convert mechanical power into electrical power. Alternator having some arrangement AVR(Automatic Voltage Regulator), Starter winding, field winding, Rectifier.
