What is a Genset battery?

A diesel generator needs to be cranked instantly when the power fails. Most generators located remotely have a built-in automatic mains failure & need to be automatically started immediately. The Genset needs a reliable DG battery to provide the high currents required for cranking the diesel engine. Genset batteries are built differently with a special chemical formulation in the active materials to provide for superior cranking currents to provide for a failsafe starting of the diesel engine.

What is the difference between automotive batteries & Genset batteries?

The major difference is the design of the battery plates. The DG battery has a more robust plate construction to meet the demanding cranking power required to start the heavy load of a large diesel generator’s engine. Automotive batteries will possibly do the same task of starting the engine, but will not have the same life.

How to calculate battery capacity for DG set?
