Relevant presence of Grupel in the MEE 2018

Grupel is a leader company that is dedicated to manufacturing a wide range of gensets in Portugal and that was awarded by the Portuguese people with the Five Star 2018 award. Once again, Grupel attended the prestigious fair Middle East Electricity (MEE 2018), that took place between March 6 and 8 in Dubai. MEE 2018 is an outstanding event of international recognition in the power industry, dedicated to products in this sector like production, transmission and distribution and in this [...]

Auxiliary Emergency Systems

What types of Auxiliary Emergency Systems there are?

An auxiliary emergency system is an equipment that provides support to meet the energy needs of a given location or infrastructure, can function as a primary or complementary source. Auxiliary emergency system presupposes design, development, and installation tailored to the needs and conditions of the infrastructures which will assist. To achieve this, the assembly teams must use all their experience to implement a reliable solution corresponding to the demanding levels of the final application.When faced with types of large installations [...]

What is a genset?

A genset refers to an equipment whose function is to convert the so-called heat capacity into mechanical energy and then into electrical energy. Briefly, it consists of a motor and an alternator that is coupled and inserted in a base with other elements. These complementary elements are:batteries, fuel tank, control panel, automatic transfer switch, and soundproof.In terms of use, gensets can usually be used as the main source or as an auxiliary source to respond to energy needs, in [...]

How Diesel Generator Works

The diesel generator is an equipment whose use is indicated for applications that require more power and for continuous operation. They convert the fuel into electrical energy, through the combustion of diesel. This type of fuel, compared to others like gasoline, for example, is burned at a higher temperature, hence more efficient and ensure greater power to the generator. Diesel generators require regular maintenance to function properly. In general, how does a diesel generator work?First, air is blown into the [...]

A different Christmas video, because the cause deserves it!

On the 12th of October, at one of the many planning meetings we hold in Grupel’s Marketing Department, we addressed the issue of the 2017 Christmas Video and what could be done differently this year. Here Mariana (from Marketing Department) says:“a couple of days ago, coming by car with Analisa (from Financial department) she had a fantastic idea for this year’s video”“Oh really?! We questioned. “So, call her and let’s listen”. Analisa entered the meeting and talked about the summer fires [...]

Advantages of having a Diesel Generator in your Company

There are several advantages to having a diesel generator in your company. One of the most advantageous factors is that this type of generator is more efficient (cost/ maintenance/performance) when compared to natural gas or gasoline generators, for example. This advantage applies to the European market. When acquiring a generator or group of generators for your company, you should consider all factors, and make comparisons to make an assertive purchase. To do this, you should reflect on what your company's [...]

Industrial Generators: advantages of its application

Industrial generators are developed to ensure that there is a continuous supply of power in the event of failure of the grid systems. Thus, these equipment’s have the capacity to guarantee an efficient performance of the equipment, in case there are breaks of electric supply. There are several generators for the industrial application with different solutions to meet the requirements of continuous power supply and according to the types of emergency or need. Industrial generators are robust equipment, which must be [...]

Different types of electric current generators

Electric current generators are devices designed to ensure that there is a power differential that is long-lasting. It must be asking itself why it is necessary to guarantee the existence of this differential. For the equipment, which is powered by electric current to work, it is necessary that the electric current also perform its function. What happens is that there is only electric current from the moment that electrical voltage or potential difference occurs. However, this electrical voltage tends to [...]

Three-phase generator: what are the advantages of using it?

The three-phase generator is, as a rule, most often used in large equipment. On the other hand, the use of single-phase generators is more common in household equipment. One of the main distinguishing characteristics of three-phase systems to monophasic systems is the fact that three-phase systems have less amount of aluminum or copper to generate the same power than a single-phase generator.The three-phase generators are fed in three phases, thus ensuring conditions for a better power supply. At the top [...]
