What are the uses of gas generator set?

What are the uses of gas generator? Gas generator is a kind of power generation equipment. Its working principle is that the engine burns gas, and the heat energy is converted into machinery Energy, which drives the rotation of the generator, drives the cutting magnetic field of the generator, and finally generates electric energy. What are its main uses?

First, self provided power supply. Some power users have no grid power supply, such as islands far from the mainland, remote pastoral areas, rural areas, military barracks, workstations, radar stations on desert plateau, etc., so they need to configure their own power supply. The so-called self-contained power supply is the power supply for self use. When the generating power is not too large, gas-fired generator sets often become one of the choices of self-contained power supply.

Second, standby power supply. The main purpose is that although some power users have relatively stable and reliable network power supply, in order to prevent accidents, such as circuit failure or temporary power failure, they can still be configured as emergency power generation. The power users who use the power supply generally have high requirements for power supply guarantee, and even power failure for a minute and a second is not allowed. They must be replaced by emergency power generation at the moment when the network power supply is terminated, Otherwise, it will cause great losses. Such units include some traditional high power supply guarantee units, such as hospitals, mine security power supply, factories using electric heating equipment, etc. in recent years, network power supply has become a new growth point of standby power demand, such as telecom operators, banks, airports, command centers, databases, highways, grade hotel office buildings, high-end catering and entertainment places, due to the use of network management, These units are increasingly becoming the main use of standby power.

Third, alternative power supply. The function of alternative power supply is to make up for the shortage of network power supply. There may be two situations. – the price of grid power is too high, and gas-fired generators are selected as alternative power sources from the perspective of cost saving. The other is that in the case of insufficient grid power supply, the use of grid power is limited, and the power supply department has to cut off power everywhere. At this time, power units need alternative power sources for relief in order to produce and work normally. In recent years, the market hot sales of gas-fired generator sets in China, such as the National hot sales in the first half of the 1980s, the hot sales in South China in the early 1990s, and the hot sales in East China from 2003 to 2004, are all caused by national and regional power shortages. In order to cope with large-scale power blackouts, all power units have purchased gas-fired generator sets as alternative power sources.

Fourth, mobile power supply. Mobile power is a power generation facility that has been transferred everywhere without a fixed place of use. Gas generator set has become the first choice of mobile power supply because of its light, flexible and easy to operate characteristics. Mobile power supply is generally designed in the form of power vehicles, including self powered vehicles and trailer powered vehicles. Most of the power users who use mobile power have the nature of mobile work, such as oil fields, geological exploration, and fields_ I Chengshi exploration, camping, mobile command post, power carriage (innovation) of trains, ships, freight containers, power supply of military mobile weapons and equipment, and some mobile power supplies have the nature of emergency power supply, such as emergency power supply vehicles of urban power supply departments, engineering rescue vehicles and emergency repair vehicles of water and gas supply departments.
