I would really appreciate , If some one can tell what would be the cost of Diesel engine like field Marshall of 10 HP and Alternator of 14 KV together . This requirement is for my 3 phase borewell motor of 5 hp located at 280 feet depth .
We had bought a Prakash 10.5hp diesel generator in Bangalore for Rs.65k. Used it for 6 months before getting the electricity connection. 6hp borewell pump/motor worked well at a depth of 240feet. For last year due to lack of rains, had to lower the borewell to 280 feet and now the generator seems to be heating up a little when used.
So, plan for a higher capacity one if you foresee water levels going down year over year. If you have the need to lower the pump or go for a higher hp borewell pump in future, buying a higher capacity generator upfront one will help.
Never buy local assembled gensets as well as the Prakash Genset for regular and continuous usage. They are all substandard genset after three months , every two months, like EMI you have to cough for high maintenance costs because of those DG sets are have very high vibrations and substandard parts.
While buying the Gensets please discuss with the reputed companies genset dealers about your usage , understand the right selection /suitable kva genset then go ahead. Because , even operational load is less, but the pumps/compressors need starting current 3 times more and you have to select the genset based on that load to avoid any damages to it further.
Brother Being it is a Life Time Investment in view of the Power Crisis you go far a Higher range taking into Consideration of Future needs.Don’t go for any Genset except Kirloskar or Greeves Cotton which are having the Proven Performance.Further out of the TWO Kirlosker is the Better ONE.
