Industrial Generators SIGENTICS Series Diesel Genset

Highly efficient and reliable Diesel Gensets for high and low voltage applications

You’re confronted with an increasing demand for cleaner energy and higher energy efficiency due to environmental regulations. You face requirements for land applications in connection with the grid as well as the growing role of emergency power generators – and the number of local power plants in smart grid networks is on the rise. These are only few of the factors involved in the diverse challenges in generator environments.

SIGENTICS Series Diesel Genset offers a highly efficient and compact solution to fulfill these requirements. They combine the highest efficiency levels with low lifecycle costs for all low-voltage (0.29 to 5 MVA) and high-voltage applications (1 to 25 MVA) – with maximum quality and robustness even under extreme conditions.

    High-quality and robust

    The synchronous diesel generator series with steel housings and integrated MICALASTIC ® insulation – available with water or air cooling systems – offers a product lifecycle of more than 30 years. With its robust construction, the generator series delivers reliable operation even in harsh environments. Because of their high quality, the generators require little maintenance. Cost and time savings as well as low downtime can be realized thanks to the highest possible plant and system availability. The series also ensures low vibration levels because of its rigid modular housing.

    High efficiency

    The generator series offers outstanding efficiency of up to 98 percent, thanks to the low-loss materials used and the efficient interaction of all mechanical and electrical processes. The high efficiency delivers a maximum energy yield and excellent eco-sustainability. Combined with the resulting benefit of lower diesel consumption, operators can realize both cost savings and a high ROI.

    High coverage of international standards and certifications

    The series is in compliance with industry regulations, and certification for marine applications are assured with international standards: for example, IEC 60034, DNV-GL, ABS, BV, LRS, CSS, RINA, and RMRS.

    Modular configuration

    The electrical parameters in the generator series are flexible and customized solutions for each application, for both onshore and offshore systems. Compact design adaptations are optional and can be precisely configured using 3D simulation, which makes the series a customer-friendly interface concept. Innovative customer system designs lead to easy integration and flexibility of electrical parameters.

    SIGENTICS Series Diesel Genset in detail

    Technical description

    The generators in the synchronous SIGENTICS Series Diesel Genset are self-excited brushless salient pole machines or cylindrical pole machines with a welded housing. They are composed of the main machine, the exciter, and a static excitation unit with an automatic voltage regulator. The exciter rotor is mounted directly on the generator shaft along with the rotating rectifier assembly. Thanks to the low-loss materials used and the efficient interaction of all mechanical and electrical processes in the generator, very high efficiency levels are obtained.

    The rigid modular housing also ensures a very low vibration levels. Several readily accessible service windows and the rectifier bridge extending to the non-drive end of the machine ensure easy maintenance, even in restricted spaces.
