How to Start a Diesel Generator Set

1) Place the voltage selector switch on the switch screen in the manual position;
2) Open the fuel switch and hold the fuel control handle at the throttle position of about 700 rpm;
3) Pump fuel manually with the switch handle of the high-pressure fuel pump continuously until there is resistance to the pump fuel and the injector makes a crisp squeak;
4) Put the handle of the fuel pump switch on the working position and push the pressure relief valve to the pressure relief position;
5) Start the diesel engine by rocking the handle or pressing the electric start button. When the diesel engine reaches a certain speed, pull the axle reduction back to the working position quickly so that the diesel engine can ignite and start.
6) After starting the diesel engine, return the electric key to the middle position, the speed should be controlled between 600 and 700 rpm, and pay close attention to the fuel pressure. The indication of the gauge (the working fuel pressure value is detailed in the operating instructions of various diesel engines). If there is no indication of the fuel pressure, stop the engine immediately and check it.
7) If the diesel generator set operates normally at low speed, the speed can be gradually increased to 1000-1200 RPM preheating operation. When the water temperature is 50-60 C and the fuel temperature is 45 C or so, the speed can be increased to 1500 rpm. When observing the frequency meter of the distribution panel, the frequency meter should be about 50 Hz and the voltmeter should be 380-410 volts. If the voltage is too high or too low, the magnetic field resistor can be adjusted.
8) If the diesel generator set works normally, close the air switch between the generator and the negative plant, and then gradually increase the negative plant to supply power to the outside;
