Application of Diesel electric plant

Diesel electric power plant, application of diesel electric plant and their component1. Diesel electric plant is used as emergency plant. Lot of in dust  have installed diesel electric plant in their premises to maintain essential services when supply from the grib is not available.

2. They are used for starting auxiliary in steam power station.

3. Mobile ,diesel electric plant are used for temprery  and emergency purposes.

4. A diesel plant can be started and loaded quickly as such these plant can be use as peak load  plant . so in peak load we can easily available electric load supply.

The essential components of a diesel electric plant are as follows 

1. Engine
2. Engine fuel system
3. Air intake system
4. Engine exhaust system
5. Engine cooling system
6. Engine lubrication
7. Engine starting system
Diesel electric power plant, application of diesel electric plant and their component

1. Engine 

It is the main component of the plant which dovelops power engine is coupled directly to the generator.

2. Engine fuel system 

This includes fuel storage tank, fuel transfer pump, strainer, heater and connecting pipes.

3. Engine Air intake system 

This includes air filters, ducts and super charger, the purpose of air filter is to remove the dust from the air to supplied to the engine. the system supply the required quantity of air for combustion the super charger increase the presser of air supplied to the engine by the engine .

4. Engine exhaust system 

This includes silencer and connecting ducts as the temperature of exhaust gases ducts sufficiently high , heat of these gases is utilized in heating oil or air supplied to the engine the silencer reduces the noise level.

5. Colling system 

Cooling system need only a water source, pump and a place for disposal of hot water

6. Engine lubrication system 

Lubricating oil pumps, oil tank, filters,coolers,purifiers and connecting pipe, the function of the lubrication system is to reduced the friction of moving tower.

7. Engine starting system 

This includes compressed air time, self starter extra the function of starter system is to start the engine from cold by supply compressed air the system enables the engine rotate em boles to rotate initially starting until  firing starter.
