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.

What are the possible causes of common faults in
a diesel generator?
  • Regular maintenance of a generator is essential
    to ensure consistent performance.
  • If you fail to do that there are several
    complications that may come your way.
  • Following are some of the most common generator
    problems
  • Failure to start One of the most common issues
    that many people face is that their generator
    fails to start.
  • This could be because the controls are not set on
    auto mode but on the "off/reset" position.
  • This causes the generator to remain inactive even
    when there is a power outage.

What are the possible causes of common faults in
a diesel generator?
  • Leaks Fuel, coolant or lubricating oil leaks is
    also the most commonly faced problem in a diesel
    generator.
  • Leaks can be traced to increased temperature in
    the system.
  • For instance, block heater hoses fail due to
    temperature rise resulting in coolant leaks.
  • Apart from this, gasket failure also leads to
    leaking.
  • Lack of fuel Fuel gauges may fail to indicate
    the fuel levels accurately.
  • Hence, it is advised to manually check the oil
    level and be prepared with extra supply if
    refueling is needed.

What are the possible causes of common faults in
a diesel generator?
  • Wet stacking is also a common occurrence and it
    is often confused with leaks.
  • Wet stacking occurs when unburned fuel
    accumulates in the system.
  • This happens when the generator runs under a
    light load for a prolonged period of time.
  • Battery failure Mostly battery failures can be
    traced to the accumulation of lead sulfates on
    the plates of lead-acid batteries.
  • To avoid battery failure and ensure the smooth
    functioning of the generator set, it is
    recommended to replace the battery every three
    years.
