The main purpose of generator sets is to provide electrical energy, continuous or temporary (in cases of emergency), safely and effectively. The generator sets serve not only to supply energy to unsupported regions, but also to be activated in cases of emergency, avoiding various losses due to power outage.
Small generators generally use common rotating elements, in which case the vibration behavior and fault diagnosis is similar to that of a large electric motor. The vibration data measurement requirements for diesel powered generators should normally be in accordance with ISO 10816 part 3.
