Company Overview
  • TMTL - TAFE Motors and Tractors Limited, a wholly
    owned subsidiary of Tractors and Farm Equipment
    Limited (TAFE)
  • TMTL consists of three manufacturing divisions,
    the Tractors Division, the Engines Division and
    the Transmissions Division.
  • Based at Alwar, Rajasthan, the unit manufactures
    diesel engines in the 5 to 125 kVA range.

How does the diesel generator set work?
  • The primary function of a diesel power generator
    is to convert mechanical energy created by the
    combustion of diesel into electrical energy.
  • A silent diesel generator set consists of three
    main components diesel engine, AC alternator and
    control panel.
  • Engine The engine is the primary component of a
    diesel generator set, this is because it is the
    source of mechanical energy which is later
    converted into electrical energy.

How does the diesel generator set work?
  • The power output of the generators is directly
    proportional to the size of the engine.
  • Alternator The alternator converts the
    electrical output from the mechanical input
    supplied by the engine.
  • The alternator consists of a rotor, which is the
    moving part of the alternator.
  • The rotor produces a magnetic field which
    eventually produces the alternating current.
  • Control panel The control panels consist of the
    start and stop button.

  • It also indicates the reading of various
    parameters like voltage, current and frequency.
  • The switches on the control panel make the
    generator easy to operate.
  • Inside the generator set, the air is drawn into a
    cylinder and compressed.
  • The compressed air is heated to a temperature of
    700 900C.
  • Simultaneously, diesel is injected in the
    cylinder which combusts due to the high
    temperature of the cylinder.

How does the diesel generator set work?
  • The heat energy is converted into mechanical
    energy through a piston in the cylindrical
    passage, this piston is further connected to a
    crankshaft.
  • An alternator is coupled with the diesel engine
    and the mechanical energy from the cylinder is
    transmitted to an alternator and converted into
    electrical energy.
