A diesel genset runs 3x more efficiently at full loads than low loads. Not only does running gensets at low loads cost fuel but it can cause damage through soot and unburnt fuel residue clogging the piston rings. Once these are compromised, a cycle of degradation sets in, reducing the efficiency of the genset further and ultimately resulting in breakdown. Over 10 years, genset replacement and maintenance costs can be more than 5x initial capital expenditure.
By coupling a diesel genset with a redT energy storage system, it can run at a higher loading to charge the battery (with extremely low marginal fuel impact) whilst still supplying demand. When demand falls, the genset can switch off and the energy storage system can take over, leading to significant savings by:
