AGCO Power had manufactured diesel generators known as GENSET from 1952. The decades in business have included all sorts of generating sets to hospitals, industry, data centers, military and agricultural customers. Our main product is the AG-series with our own excellent engines but we have the expertise and know-how with good history to build complex projects when needed.
GENSETS can work as:
- Stand-by Power Generation
When used as stand-by power system, the automatic generating sets start providing electricity in less than 10 seconds from power grid failure and stop automatically once the electricity in main grid is reliable again.
- Prime Power Generation
Generating sets are typically used for Prime power generation in locations where there is main grid available. Generating set may even be more cost-effective solution than a new power connection to a remote location.
- Peak Shaving
Peak shaving generators are used to produce electricity during high peaks consumption. This may save you when you don’t have to oversize a grid connection because of one or two big loads that are used only occasionally. All of our standard series units with InteliGen control panel have this functionality.
Power failure is very common and some of the reasons for the problem are lightning strikes, fallen tree, flooding, fallen poll, construction or hurricanes. Power failure in the poultry and swine farm can cause massive livestock losses to the farmers within a short period of time. Although curtains may drop automatically during power failure to allow air coming into the farmhouse, sometimes it is insufficient for the livestock especially swine. A sudden grid power failure can cause severe losses from both mortalities and reduced performance of the poultry and swine as they could not cope with the drastic temperature changes properly. If the power grid fails, the power station must step up immediately as constant source of power is critical. Hence, more and more businesses around the world are looking for power generators to satisfy their primary and standby power requirements. The best way to ensure reliable and continuous power supply is with AGCO Power’s GENSETS.
The AG-series power generator includes six generator sets in the power range of 60-250kVA to suit the needs of every farmer. The generators are available as open models for machine rooms and equipment shelters or as canopy, ready-to-use models. There are also sound attenuated enclosures for AG-series including ready-to-use exhaust piping with efficient silencers. The generator sets are just the right size, compact and easy to move.
The vast array of control functions are easily accessed through InteliLite and InteliGen control units so that farmers can have a better control on the GENSET. The available operating modes are manual start, automatic or manual start with grid control and automatic control with synchronization or peak shaving. This allows the farmers to operate the power generator without having to be physically present at the farm.
To set up the GENSET, farmers need to have an installation plan for mechanics and electricity uses. Farmers need to decide on the location to place the power generator whether it is in the farmhouse or outside of the farmhouse. For indoor units, it is usually an open unit. The area should have proper ventilation, inlet, outlet and recirculation if necessary. For outdoor units, the power generator is typically sound attenuated enclosure models. All the cable routes and installations are done by certified contractor to ensure the safety of the farm.
To choose the right power generator size for your farm, the generating set power must exceed the required power of total load it is supplying. The best way to check the total load is to have a list of all equipments with loads and select the required power rating. A rough estimate is:
- AG60 (87 A) fits locations with fuse sizes 3×63 A to 3×100 A
- AG90 (130 A) fits locations with fuse sizes 3×100 A to 3×160 A
- AG110 (159 A) fits locations with fuse sizes 3×125 A to 3×160 A
- AG150 (218 A) fits locations with fuse sizes 3×160 A to 3×250 A
- AG205 (296 A) fits locations with fuse sizes 3×250 A to 3×400 A
- AG250 (361 A) fits locations with fuse sizes 3×315 A to 3×400 A
AGCO Power invests in building high-quality generator sets that are tested and verified to deliver the promised quality to guarantee a long service life to the customers. These GENSETS offer reliability and peace of mind to the farmers, knowing that their livestock will not be affected by the power grid failure.
