Generally speaking, there are two ways to start a diesel generator set, one is manual, the other is automatic switching. Manual startup should first test the alarm system to see if it is normal, then cut the control switch behind the manual position, and then it can start normally. Automatic switching is to switch the control switch to automatic, and the power automatic switching switch should also be located in an automatic position, so that when the city power stops, the generator can run on its own.
I. Preparatory Work
Before starting the diesel generator, it is necessary to check whether the water or antifreeze in the water tank is sufficient, and if not, to fill up before starting. In addition, it is also necessary to determine whether the lubricant has been added to the prescribed calibration line and whether there are potential safety hazards in each component. If there are potential hazards, it is necessary to eliminate them as soon as possible before starting.
II. Notices in Operation
When the engine is working, special people should be there to observe at any time, especially the changes of water temperature, oil temperature, voltage and other important indicators. If there are abnormalities, measures should be taken immediately. In addition, pay attention to whether there is enough diesel oil. If the generator stops running due to insufficient fuel during operation, it is likely that some parts of the machine will be damaged.
3. No start-up or shutdown with load
Before starting, make sure that the output air switch is closed. After startup, it usually takes three to five minutes to idle. In winter, because of the low temperature, the time will be prolonged for several minutes. Attention should be paid to the occurrence of oil and water leakage. If there is any, the operation should be stopped immediately and the inspection and maintenance should be carried out. Before shutdown, the load should be slowly cut off, then the output air switch should be closed, and then shut down after three to five minutes when it slows down to idle state.
