I am working on a project to monitor a power meter parameters like voltage, frequency, current and so on and this monitoring for both AC and DC. For DC we are using Cummins diesel generator, now I need to calculate the generator running hours based on the load.
For example, I have a generator with 10 kVA capacity which consumes the diesel as follows:
On 1/4 load the generator will take 1.5 ltr/hour
On 1/2 load the generator will take 2 ltr/hour
On 3/4 load the generator will take 3 ltr/hour
On Full load, the generator will take 5 ltr/hour
How to calculate these 1/4, 1/2, 3/4 and full load from the power meter parameters? And how can I calculate the diesel consumed by the generator using the same parameters?
