Diesel Generator Battery Maintenance


Emergency Diesel Generators

Battery is an essential part of the starting system for a diesel generator set. Batteries are so important to generator operation that the battery is often the first thing a service technician will check when a generator fails. Since batteries are such a main role of a diesel generator, it is quite necessary to do regular maintenances for batteries to make sure that they are in good condition.

Generally we will focus on four (4) tips as below:

1. Check the water level regularly. Generally, there will be upper and lower limits marks on the side of the battery. Once the water level is found to be lower than the lower mark, it is necessary to add distilled water, and do not add too much water, just reach the standard water level line.

2. Supply electrolyte in time. Before using a new battery, the standard electrolyte should be added. The electrolyte should be 10-15mm higher than the plate. The electrolyte is easy to be absorbed by the plate, and it should be supplement in time.

3. Keep the battery clean. Clean the dust, oil and other pollutants that are easy to cause electricity leakage on the panel and pile head. And it is good to increase the service life.

4. Daily check whether the battery is charged normally. You can check it with a multimeter, if the voltage is too low or too high, you need to ask a professional to overhaul the charging system.
