Diesel Generator Sets are generators that use diesel to run. These are commonly used as backup units for emergency power supply. They are available in both single and three-phase. Diesel engines in these gensets are sturdy and reliable. On the other hand, Natural Gas Generators, which use natural gas, works in a manner similar to other generators, however, they are widely used and efficient means of generating power since it uses the most affordable and effective fuels among non-renewable resources for power generation.
But in comparison, diesel generators are far more efficient. Also from a safety point of view, it is more preferable, since diesel is used which is less flammable than other fuel sources. New models of diesel gensets are less noisy. However, they are more expensive and may be bulky. A natural gas generator will use more fuel than a diesel generator.
Now, with the advent of biodiesel generators, disadvantages of a natural gas generator or a diesel generator can be discounted and they may become more of buyer’s preference.
Engine driven generators are widely used in power generation, renewable energy, oil & gas, data storage & manufacturing industry and are mainly used for emergency power generation, backup power generation, wind power generation and hydroelectric power.
