It seems like we spend a lot of time talking about generator set installations and loads but not so much about the generator set operating environment. Things like altitude, ambient temperature, dusty or corrosive environments and seismic activity, among others, can have a marked impact on generator set life and performance.

 

One widely misunderstood topic is that of cooling systems – we often hear questions such as: What is ambient clearance? What happens when the ambient temperature exceeds the generator set cooling system’s capability? What effect does an enclosure have on the generator set’s capability? What is the difference between ambient temperature and temperature at the radiator core?
