Two Ways to Preserve the Performance of and Maintain your Diesel Generator

If you have recently invested in a diesel generator to work alongside your uninterruptible power supply (UPS), you have won half the battle of fully protecting your critical business systems. In order to conquer the other half, you must now enter a quest to ensure a high level of ongoing generator performance. If not, then you risk your generator components wearing out and failing, which could have severe knock-on effects for your power protection system. To give you peace of mind that this will not be the case, there are two types of measures you need to take:

1. Complete load bank tests each month

To check whether your generator is functioning as effectively as possible, we recommend conducting load bank tests for critical loads, on a monthly basis. Load bank tests mimic the conditions of a power failure by putting your generator system under a controlled resistive load. This makes it easy to measure the performance of your generator and highlight any potential problems. If any issues arise, they can then be resolved before you experience a shortage of power. Learn more about generator load bank testing.

2. Take out generator maintenance cover

This is important as if your generator becomes faulty then your UPS becomes the last line of defence between you and the potential collapse of your business operation. For confidence that your generator is working correctly and company assets are safe and secure, look no further than Adept Power Solution’s industry leading package of generator maintenance services.
