The engine is the source of the input mechanical energy to the generator.
The alternator produces the electrical output from the mechanical input supplied by the engine.
The fuel system keeps the generator operational (move the engine).
This component regulates the output voltage of the generator.
Continuous usage of the generator causes components to heat up. It is essential to have a cooling and ventilation system to cool the heat down. Exhaust fumes emitted by a generator contain highly toxic chemicals that need to be properly managed. Hence, it is essential to install an efficient exhaust system to dispose of the exhaust gases.
Since the generator comprises moving parts in its engine, it requires lubrication to ensure durability and smooth operations for a long period of time.
The start function of a generator is battery-operated. The battery charger keeps the generator battery charged by supplying it with a precise ‘float’ voltage.
