NextGen Power Systems

NextGen utilizes the best generator maintenance practice by following the maintenance schedule provided by the manufacturer/s of the generator.

The main responsibilities of NextGen would be to inspect systems, study the technical data provided by the manufacturers, maintain records and take precautionary measures for safety as suggested by the manufacturers.  Some of the steps NextGen will take to ensure smooth generator operation while carrying out scheduled maintenance include:

  • Timely removal of worn out parts or upgrading the components

  • Checking fluid levels

  • Battery inspection and cleaning of connections

  • Load bank testing

  • Verifying control panel readings and indicators

  • Changing fuel and air filters.

Small investments made in replacing components and maintaining generators on a regular basis can save expensive and unnecessary upgrades or even replacement of the entire genset in the future.

When performing routine maintenance, each action taken should be logged, and the readings and various parameters are recorded along with the date of inspection and hour meter reading of the generator. These set of readings are compared with the next set of data collected. Any absurd variation of readings indicates faulty performance of the unit. Load testing of automatic transfer switches in regular intervals keeps track of the component’s electrical and mechanical integrity in the actual mechanical transfer operation. Other factors to be checked periodically are starting and timing relays, start signal continuity, and utility phase sensing.
