What is the role of diesel generator relays?

May 17, 2022
Diesel generator set relay is an electronic control device. The relay is one of the important equipment in diesel generator set. It plays a preventive role on whether the diesel generator set can run well and can improve the safety factor of the diesel generator set. The relay is usually used in automatic control circuits. It is actually an "automatic switch" that uses a smaller current to control a larger current, so it plays a protective role in the circuit such as automatic adjustment, safety protection, conversion circuit, etc. In addition The diesel generator set relay also has the following functions.
1) Expand the control range: For example, when the control signal of a multi-contact relay reaches a certain value, it can switch, break, and connect multiple circuits at the same time according to different forms of contact groups.
2) Amplification: For example, sensitive relays, intermediate relays, etc., with a very small amount of control, can control circuits with high power.
3) Integrated signal: For example, when multiple control signals are input to the multi-winding relay in a specified form, the predetermined control effect is achieved after comparison and synthesis.
4) Automatic, remote control, monitoring: For example, the relay on the automatic device can form a program control circuit together with other electrical appliances to realize automatic operation.
