Compared with gasoline, gas and other energy sources, diesel contains high energy. Within the unit volume and price, the operating cost of diesel generators is also much lower. However, compared with the electricity used in the municipal power industry, in addition to the cost of purchasing generator sets, its power generation cost is also higher, especially affected by the changes in diesel prices. The following is an example to calculate the operating cost of diesel generators.
What is the operation cost of diesel generator
In the industry, the fuel consumption of a diesel generator is usually calibrated by the fuel consumption rate (unit: g/kw. h). Most of its parameters are between 190-210g/kw. h, among which, due to different technologies, there is a certain gap in the fuel consumption rate among brands, while the gap between these parameters is small. The fuel consumption is calculated by 198g/kw. h. For example, the fuel consumption per hour of a fully loaded 30KW diesel generator is 30 * 198g=5.94kg, The density of diesel oil is about 0.8kg/L (the density of diesel oil of different grades is slightly different), so the hourly fuel consumption of this diesel generator is 7.4L.
According to the annual average price of diesel oil of 6 yuan/l, the cost of diesel oil to output 30 kilowatt hours of electricity is 7.4 * 6=44.4 yuan, that is, the cost per kilowatt hour of electricity is 44.4 ÷ 30=1.48 yuan, which is more than about 1.1 yuan of electricity charge for power grid industry.
In addition to diesel oil consumption, the operating cost of diesel generator should also consider mechanical wear maintenance, oil consumption, etc. When selecting generator sets, it should be based on the actual situation. For example, if the generator sets are used frequently, large brand generator sets can be selected. Its fuel consumption rate is usually lower, and the equipment is durable. If the generator sets are rarely used, the generator set manufacturers with reliable quality can be selected, and the purchase cost will be much lower.
