Components of an engine driven generator:
Engine: In an engine driven generator, the engine is the main component. It creates mechanical energy that gets converted into electricity. A generator engine's design and size determine the maximum power output it can create by running on a specific fuel or another power source.
Fuel Mechanism – Fuel tank, Fuel pipes, Fuel filter etc: The entire system contains a tank for storage of fuel and fuel pipes connecting the tank and the engine. The fuel pump moves the fuel through the fuel pipes to the engine and a fuel filter helps filter any debris from the fuel before delivery to the engine. This ensures maximum efficiency and increases the durability of the engine. The fuel injector injects the fuel directly into the combustion chamber of the engine.
Alternator: The alternator consists of the stator and the rotor. A set of coils that conduct electricity is called a stator which is a stationary part, whereas a rotor moves to create a constantly rotating electromagnetic field around the stator.
Voltage Regulator: A voltage regulator is primarily used to regulate the voltage produced, which is suitable for the application or purpose of a generator.
Cooling and Exhaust System: the Cooling system is required in a generator to avoid overheating or regulate the temperature when in use. An exhaust is required to dispel harmful gases emitted during operation of a generator. Generators often use a fan, coolant or both to control the temperature of the generator at work.
Lubricating System: Since generators comprise of many moving parts, they require regular oiling to ensure smooth functioning. The lubricating system in a generator helps in performing this function.
