AC diesel engine generators are of various types, such as Pramac, Parkins, Lister Peter, Turbo, and Drive Generator. The generator can be a DC or AC machine that converts mechanical energies such as potential and kinetic energy into electrical energy. The generator may not work for various reasons if it is not properly maintained and serviced. Generator
has several different parts that work together to allow generation of the power required to run loads at a set frequency. The five main parts of the diesel generator include: main alternator, charging alternator, DC wet chamber, motor, and controller. Generator machine parts include: injection pump, fuel solenoid valve, magnetic pickup, flow nozzle, camshaft, cam follower, crack shaft, pushrods, spring retainer, engine block, head engine, oil filter, oil drain valve, pistons, valves, temperature sensor, oil pressure sensor, radiator, water pump, prime mover, dipstick, fan, V-belt, motor starters, etc.
When the starter motor is powered by the battery, the generator flywheel moves slightly. The movement of the flywheel is facilitated by the movement of the axis of the crack when the explosion occurs in the combined chamber of the cylinder. And because the flywheel rotates at a constant speed, the main alternator generates an alternating current that is then converted to direct current by a rectifier to drive the loads at a set frequency.
