Generator Inertia Constant (prime mover + alternator)

[ Edited ]

I have read blogs about manufacturers coming up with generator sets (diesel and other) with lower inertia in the recent years for economical reasons. Can anyone please comment on this trend?

 

Also, I would like to know if there are any thumb rule that we assume for the prime mover inertia value if we are given only the alternator inertia value?
