What is the preventive maintenance of your generator set?

When we speak of preventive maintenance we refer to all those actions that must be carried out in a generator set, periodically, for its correct operation and to reduce errors or failures to the minimum expression. They can be divided into two groups: mechanical and electrical factors.

Preventive maintenance of electric generator

Everything you have to take into account for the proper functioning of the mechanics of your group

  • First, check that the oil level in the engine and injection pump is correct.

  • A general inspection of the engine must be carried out, with emphasis on the state of the water circuit and the alternator.

  • Also check the water level in the radiator.

  • The oil levels in the individual mother tank and the main tank must be correct, otherwise they must be refilled.

  • It is very important to check that there are no oil or water leaks.

  • Do not forget to check that the pump and alternator belts are taut and in perfect condition.

  • The generating set must operate with a temperature that always oscillates between 30º and 40º.

  • Finally, don’t forget to check the operation and condition of the transfer pumps.

Electrical factors to take into account for the preventive maintenance of your equipment

  • Make sure that the heating resistor of the crankcase is working properly and at the correct temperature.

  • Check electrolyte level and battery status.

  • Clean and remove dust from the control panel and commutations.

  • Perform a test from the group’s own automation box to ensure that there will be no unexpected errors. The duration should be at least 15 minutes.

  • Note the generator and mains voltage in volts.

  • Write down the installation intensity of the power supply of the group and the frequency of the generator in cycles per second.
