Starting Sequence of Diesel engine


Diesel engine:

A diesel engine is an internal combustion engine. It is also known as compression ignition engine. It consists of 16 chambers and it’s power is about 1870 HP.

The engine shaft is coupled with the turbine shaft. Since it rotates at certain speed hence the turbine also rotates and electricity is produce by generator. Actually it is used as initial power source.

Condition for running:

  1. Shaft coupling will be connected until engine rpm is greater than turbine rpm.
  2. Shaft coupling will be disconnected until engine rpm is less than turbine rpm.
