Diesel Power

Diesel power generation remains the electrical source of choice for emergency backup power or for facilities in remote locations. Plugging into a diesel genset is usually a straightforward task, but multiple generator installations and hot transfer applications can quickly become a complicated operation.

Common electrical challenges at a diesel electric power generating facility:

  • Synchronizing multiple gensets should be a simple task, but often is not.
  • Low fault currents can complicate the protection co-ordination.
  • Insufficient load resulting in over-cooling of the engine and poor efficiency.
  • Starting a large motor from a relatively small diesel engine can be difficult.
  • Frequency and voltage hunting between multiple units on a common bus.
  • Closed synchronous transfer from standby diesel to grid power requires special attention.

Whether you are planning a new diesel station or troubleshooting an old one, Strutherstech has solutions for your project.
