    It's a backup generator.
    A diesel Engine driving a single or 3 phase generator.

    It is a Diesel Engine. They are also used to generate electric power for locomotive engines used on trains.

    I am curious that if you are an electrical engineer how do not understand the basics of power generation. Where did you go to school? This is very basic stuff taught in many basic science classes taught in grade schools.

    If its so easy; you could point the TS to a link for inside diagrams.

    I can't be bothered doing that - but neither can I be bothered ragging on the TS.

    What he forgets is that there are huge capital expenses involved in such an enterprise. Does he have several million in his back pocket? Can he afford to wait 90-180 days for payment?

    I always love the guys that look at a steel chassis and think steel is $0.70/kg and this thing weighs 500 pounds so it will cost $350. Good luck.
