How CPCB gen sets are the back bone of India today - the current technological trends and developments in diesel generators in India
We are predominantly witnessing two major technical trends in the DG sets sector which generally attracts customer demand – fuel efficiency and emission controls. Today we have products compliant to CPCB II norms and even Euro IV standards. The availability of such products hence drives the customer towards purchasing and utilising DG sets which are far more superior to the alternatives which were available.
Any product which offers increased productivity, fuel efficiency, minimal maintenance and more importantly are cost competent drives the choice of customers towards superior products. Load characteristics though does not influence the choice for DG sets, it definitely defines the operational efficiency of that particular product. The ability to maintain a stable load ensures the efficiency and longer operational life of the DG sets.
The new CPCB II Emission Rule is a breakthrough legislation which will certainly help control release of polluting gases into the atmosphere and result in overall healthy living. CPCB II norms aim to reduce levels of nitrogen oxides (NOX) and particulate matter (PM), which are the two main pollutants in diesel engines.
With implementation of CPCB II and stringent emission norms, there will be substantial improvement in the quality of exhaust gases being discharged into the atmosphere. The new norms will have positive impact that will ensure favourable actions by companies. More oxygen in engines and higher combustion temperature in engine result in more production of PM and NOX. The implementation of these norms will certainly help control release of polluting gases into the atmosphere and result in overall healthy living.
The genset industry is progressively moving towards cleaner and greener energy solutions. CPCB has implemented the emission not less than any other continent. This is a milestone initiative to save the live hoods by making aware of the emission as well control and monitoring it.
