How to extend the life of the generator

How to use the newly purchased diesel generator can prolong the service life of the generator set:
The newly purchased diesel generator sets need to pay attention to the following points. Proper use and maintenance of the generator set can prolong the service life of the generator set:
1. Preparations before starting
(1) The operators in the machine room should abide by the safety operation regulations, wear work clothes and insulating shoes, and the crew members should have a clear division of labor.
(2) Check whether the anti-rail cover of flywheel and generator part is in good condition.
(3) Check each gearbox, clutch, governor, oil level, fasteners, etc., and make sure that they are in good condition, and the oil and water temperature is not lower than 20 degrees before starting.
(4) Set the pipeline gates of each system in the "working" position.
(5) Check the link bolts of the transmission mechanism and tighten them.
(6) Check whether the pressure of the clutch handle is normal and whether the overspeed safety device is positioned.
(7) Check whether the pressure of the gas storage cylinder is normal and whether the overspeed safety device is positioned.
(8) Open the drain valve of the air pump.
(9) Check whether the circulating water pump, oil pump and fuel pump are normal.
(10) Set the excitation resistor to the maximum resistance position, and disconnect the power transmission switch.
2. Start and run operation
(1) For units that have been shut down for more than 24 hours, the test valve must be opened first, and the oil pump must be started. For units that have been shut down for more than 7 days, the insulation resistance of the exciter and the operating circuit should be measured to meet the requirements.
(2) Start the fuel pump, release the air in the pipeline, and observe whether the voltage is within the specified range. If it is normal, it can be officially started.
(3) Check whether the voltage of the starting power supply meets the requirements. If the voltage is normal, press the start button and release it after the diesel engine runs normally.
(4) After the diesel engine is running, observe the indication value of the oil pressure gauge. When it rises above the specified value, stop the oil pump, close the blowdown valve of the scavenging pump, and thread the front clutch screw.
(5) When the generator starts, it is considered that the generator and all electrical equipment are charged, and the human body must not touch the charged parts.
(6) After the generator starts, the speed of the diesel engine should be gradually increased, and the inspection before power transmission should be carried out.
(7) Gradually adjust the speed of the diesel engine, but pay attention to whether the generator is running normally during adjustment. Normally, the brushes on the collector ring and commutator should have no jumping, no sparking, and no abnormal noise.
(8) Adjust the output voltage and frequency of the generator. The voltage value should be stable and reach 380v+-10v, and the frequency should reach 50Hz+-0.5Hz.
