Power Generator Rpm


Recommended Posts

Dear all,


I got a little bit confusing on understanding this: What is the advantage and disavantage of Diesel Power Generator at the same capacity but difference revolution. For example: 1500 vs 3000rpm.


While we can produce 50Hz at 3000rpm already, why we have to design another kind of revolution at the same Hz?


Someone please shed a light on this.

For me, generator with 1500rpm is better then 3000rpm for following reasons;


1) Low rpm generator have low noise and vibration level.

2) If you check, I think low rpm generator's oil changing time is higher than other. For example, if low rpm generator oil change time is after 100hours than other generator would be 50 or 70 hours.
