GRUPELquality, reliability and efficiency



    The single-phase generators range consists of several very reliable machines that work in a system powered by single-phase voltage. Their power ranges the usual single-phase installations commonly known to be 5 to 20 kilowatts .



    This is the most popular and versatile range of generators. They are designed for a three-phase electrical network, but in some cases, when there is a three-phase mains and single-phase consumers, their use is extremely appropriate.



    The range of industrial generators covers capacities in range 500 to 2500 kilowatts. Industrial diesel generators are specially developed for industrial needs with high energy requirements. 

Diesel generators, everything you need to know

Diesel generators: everything you need to know

Diesel generators are devices that convert the mechanical energy of a diesel engine into electrical energy. They are widely used in a variety of applications including:

  • To provide backup power in the event of a power outage
  • For powering remote sites that are not connected to the power grid
  • For powering portable devices such as campers and caravans
  • For industrial applications such as powering machinery and equipment

How do diesel generator work?

The diesel engine in a diesel generator works on the same principle as any other diesel engine. When air is drawn into the engine cylinder, it is compressed to a very high pressure. Diesel fuel is then injected into the cylinder and ignited by a spark from the spark plug. Combustion of the fuel creates heat that causes the piston to move downward. This motion is transmitted to the crankshaft, which turns the rotor of the generator. The rotor generates an electric current that is fed to the output of the generator.

What are the different types of diesel generators?

Diesel generators are classified according to a number of criteria, including:

  • By power: They come in a wide range of power, from several kilowatts to several megawatts.
  • By voltage: Diesel generators can be single-phase or three-phase. Single-phase generators produce current with a voltage of 230 volts, while
  • three-phase generators produce current with a voltage of 400 volts.
  • By Construction: Diesel generators can be stationary or portable. Stationary generators are designed for permanent use, while portable generators are designed for use outdoors or in remote areas.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of diesel generators?


  • Diesel generators are reliable and durable.
  • They can produce large amounts of electrical energy.
  • They can be used in a variety of applications.


Diesel generators are noisier than other types of generators.
They are more expensive to purchase and operate than other types of generators.

How to choose a diesel generator?

When choosing a diesel generator, you should consider the following factors:

The power you need: How much electrical power will you need from the generator?
The Voltage You Need: Will you need a single-phase or three-phase generator?
Construction: Will you need a stationary or portable generator?

Functional characteristics:

Are there other features that are important to you, such as ATS (Automatic Power Supply Switching) or AVR (Automatic Voltage Regulation)?
Care of diesel generators

To ensure the longevity of your diesel generator, you need to maintain it regularly. This includes:

  • Regular inspection and maintenance by a qualified technician
  • Change the oil and filters according to the manufacturer’s recommendations
  • Checking the coolant level and adding fluid if necessary
  • Checking the condition of the fuel filters and replacing them if necessary
  • Checking the condition of the spark plugs and replacing them if necessary


Diesel generators are reliable and durable devices that can be used in a variety of applications. When choosing a diesel generator, it is important to consider your needs and budget. With proper care, diesel generators can serve you for many years.
