Re: g/kwh to gal/h
may i know in the previous calculation whether you consider the efficiency already? i looks the genset has a round 50% efficiency.

Re: g/kwh to gal/h
how to compute kwh/liter?

Re: g/kwh to gal/h
Measure the engine's power output (kilowatts) and fuel flow (liters per hour). Divide.
It varies with the heat content of the fuel and the efficiency of the engine. For a particular engine and fuel, it varies considerably with torque and rpm (the plot is called an engine map, and shows brake specific fuel consumption contours vs torque and rpm).

Re: g/kwh to gal/h
There are 453.6 grams per pound.
230 g/kw hr = ( 230/453.6 ) lb/kw hr ~= 0.507 lbm/kwhr There are approximately 7.4 pounds / gallon for #2 D diesel fuel 0.507 lbm/kwhr / 7.4 lbm / gal ~= 0.069 gal / kwhr If 60 kw, then hourly fuel oil usage ~= 0.069 x 60 kw ( kw drops out ) = 4.11 gal/hr The reciprocal of "gal/kwhr" i.e. "kwhr/ gal" is a more used term of electric generator efficiency using diesel engines. In this case 1 / 0.069 ~= 14.5 kwhr / gal. a very competitive level.

Re: g/kwh to gal/h
each KWh will consume 0.31 liters for small machines ( under 50 KVA ) , 0.26 to 0.28 for mid machines under 250 KVA , and 0.252 litres for large machines , for DS#2 fuel

Re: g/kwh to gal/h
If a 2650 kW Main Engine has a fuel consumption of 210.2 g/kWh at full load. How much it will be at t/h ? Thanks

#27




Re: g/kwh to gal/h
210.2 g/kWh x 2650 kW x 1 t/10^6 g = 0.557 t/h
