 # What is the fuel consumption per hour of the 800kw diesel generator set? How to calculate?

May 17, 2022
In addition to the generator quotation, the most concerned issue for diesel generator set users is the fuel consumption of the generator. Most diesel generator set customers do not know the size of the diesel generator set fuel consumption and how to calculate the diesel generator set consumption. In fact, the fuel consumption of the 800kw diesel generator set is related to the following two factors:

1. Fuel consumption rate, different brands of generator sets have different fuel consumption rates and different fuel consumption.

2. The size of the electrical load, the larger the load is, the larger the fuel consumption will be, and the smaller the load will be, the smaller the relative fuel consumption will be.

The specific calculation method of the fuel consumption of the generator is as follows:

One liter of diesel is about 0.84-0.86 kg (1L=0.8-0.85KG).

Most manufacturers of generators use G/KW.H, which means how many grams (G) of oil the generator set consumes per kilowatt per hour, and then change the unit to liters (L) so that you can know your one hour. fuel cost. In order to make it easier for everyone to understand the approximate fuel consumption of the generator set and calculate the use cost of the generator set; JUNVOCH calculates the approximate reference value (30kw~800kw) for everyone.
30kw diesel generator set fuel consumption = 6.3 kilograms (kg) = 7.8 liters (L);
45kw diesel generator set fuel consumption = 9.45 kilograms (kg) = 11.84 liters (L);
50kw diesel generator set fuel consumption = 10.5 kilograms (kg) = 13.1 liters (L);
75kw diesel generator set fuel consumption = 15.7 kilograms (kg) = 19.7 liters (L);
100kw diesel generator set fuel consumption = 21 kilograms (kg) = 26.25 liters (L);
150kw diesel generator set fuel consumption = 31.5 kilograms (kg) = 39.4 liters (L);
200kw diesel generator set fuel consumption = 40 kilograms (kg) = 50 liters (L);
250kw diesel generator set fuel consumption = 52.5 kilograms (kg) = 65.6 liters (L);
300kw diesel generator set fuel consumption = 63 kilograms (kg) = 78.75 liters (L);
350kw diesel generator set fuel consumption = 73.5 kilograms (kg) = 91.8 liters (L);
400kw diesel generator set fuel consumption = 84.00 kilograms (kg) = 105.00 liters (L);
450kw diesel generator set fuel consumption = 94.50 kilograms (kg) = 118.00 liters (L);
500kw diesel generator set fuel consumption = 105.00 kilograms (kg) = 131.20 liters (L);
600kw diesel generator set fuel consumption = 126.00 kilograms (kg) = 157.50 liters (L);
700kw diesel generator set fuel consumption = 147.00 kilograms (kg) = 183.75 liters (L);
800kw diesel generator set fuel consumption = 168.00 kilograms (kg) = 210.00 liters (L);

The above are only estimates and are for reference only. The key to the fuel consumption of the 800kw diesel generator set is to see whether the operating condition of the unit is good and whether the maintenance method is correct.
