The Caterpillar DE220GC diesel generator set is designed to provide reliable power of 217 kVA at a frequency of 50 Hz. It is specifically engineered to meet the transient response requirements outlined in ISO 8528-5, which is an international standard that specifies the performance criteria for generating sets used in various applications.


Transient response refers to the diesel generator's ability to quickly and effectively respond to sudden changes in load demand. This could include situations such as starting up heavy electrical equipment or dealing with fluctuating loads. ISO 8528-5 sets guidelines for the acceptable performance parameters during these transient conditions, ensuring that the CAT generator is capable of maintaining stable power output and avoiding any detrimental effects on connected equipment.


By complying with ISO 8528-5 requirements, the CAT DE220GC diesel generator demonstrates its ability to provide reliable and stable power even when faced with sudden load variations or disturbances. This makes the diesel generator suitable for a wide range of applications, including industrial, commercial, and critical power systems where consistent and uninterrupted power supply is essential.
