Limited Fuel Consumption and Increased Longevity with Load Demand

Reduced consumption of fuel along with its maintenance cost for checking the power-saving capabilities which meet the demands are the appealing features for the customers and the clientele of standby power systems. This blog discusses how such features are quite attainable at minimal costing and also maintaining the reliability of the system with our very demand supported controllers.

To level with the generation capacity to load consumption, load demand is necessary to determine the total load, the available capacity of operating generator sets, and available capacity of non-operating generator sets. Then load demand processes this information and matches the generating capacity to the load requirement by starting or stopping the generator which sets itself to run the minimum number of generator sets required to operate the loads, while conserving fuel simultaneously, and prolonging the life expectancy of the generator sets.

The variation between load demand and load control

Load demand is not the same as load control. It refers to capacity which means starting and stopping generator set, whereas load control refers to connecting and disconnecting loads which ultimately manages the control.

The Best that can be achieved with load demand

For the best outcome of load demand, the technician must have a better understanding of the characteristics of load demand which are as follows: load profile, load priorities, largest load steps, and specific site needs.
Using this information, the technician can then optimize the load demand settings for the best outcome. The load demand algorithm can also be implemented in PLC-based master control or it can be an important part of the generator set paralleling control.

Load demand productivity

The load demand method ensures productivity hours equalization works to balance the number of run hours of the generator sets. The generator sets with the minimum number of run hours will have a higher lead to run compared with the sets with a higher number of run hours.

This can be achieved by monitoring the engine productivity and checking a run hours differential parameter. When the difference in run hours between the next generator to stop and the next generator to start surpasses the productivity differential, the system starts up the generator set with the lesser number of running hours and cuts the one with the higher number of hours.


Load demand is an important factor to consider while making a decision to purchase or rent a power generator. Therefore one should take note of the points mentioned above to come to an effective solution. It is paramount to be armed with the right information and knowledge before venturing out to rent
