Generators are electrical devices which convert mechanical energy into electrical energy. It is a solution for emergency back up power, no ideal time due to power losing.
Types of generators: Diesel, Gas, LPG, Natural gas, propane generators.
Diesel Generators: The combination of altering current and diesel engine is called diesel generators. Diesel is like petrol product used in engines. It can be used in all places without the electric supply. It needs only less maintenance than other fuel type generator. During shortage of electric power you can utilize the use of diesel generators rather than emergency period. Its functioning is very effective. Its fuel rate is very cheaper and runs for long period of time.
Types of Diesel Generators: Portable and standby diesel generators.
Portable: It has ability to functioning electric appliances like washing machine, television, refrigerator, and furnaces. It is commonly used in places like construction areas where the power supply is in demand. In portable, carbon monoxide is good practice to use for safer side. Easy to carry and less in cost.
Standby: It is used in homes and offices for emergency power supply. No need to plug out the wire while it is in ideal, because Standby automatically detects the interruption of power supply and start to give electricity within few seconds. In standby, propane and natural gas is recommended to use and more eco friendly. It may either air-cooled or liquid-cooled standby generators. Air-cooled can be used by individual home and generate electric power up to 20KW. Liquid-cooled can be used in apartments, buildings and produce power up to 22 to 150KW.
Gas Generator: Gas generator is a liquid propellant which is stored in containers. It is largely used in marine, RV vehicles, vehicle safety devices. Chemical oxygen generator is another type of gas generator. Hydrazine is a fuel used in gas generator. It used to boost up the auxiliary power unit and emergency power unit. Mostly used by home users.
LPG Gas: LPG is a liquefied petroleum gas consists of hydrocarbon gases, butane and propane. LPG gas is a silent generator. Green fuel with low pollution, easy to control while start and stop.
Natural Gas: Natural gas act as substitute of chemical fuel and best for green environment. It emits low amount of nitrogen, sulphur and green gasses. It is cleaner, cheaper because it consists of coal and oil. Used in cars and homes. In homes it is used for boiling water and micro oven. Mostly used for heating purpose in homes.
Propane: It is a fuel refiner. Normally contains in cylinder. It ranges from 5-1000 gallons. It consists of natural gas and refined crude oil. It solves the problem of all home needs.
Advantages: Easy to obtain, Cost, it can be used for several purposes, easy to transport, back up for emergency needs. It avoid the ideal time. No need to depend on electricity. Generators like natural gas are eco friendly to atmosphere. Best choice for commercial use.
