Auto-Start & Stop for Diesel Generators


The developed prototype decreases the Diesel consumption and CO2 emissions. The device allows stopping the Diesel engine, if there is no load during a pre-settled time. When a load solicitation occurs, the Diesel engine automatically restarts. All this process is done using the remote starting function of most Diesel generators, avoiding the need of any direct operation on the generator.
The present prototype is portable and is prepared to deal with Diesel generators up to 30kVA, independently of the brand or model.
