Role of Commercial Generators at Power Plants

Diesel GeneratorInterruptions in power can effect just about every industry out there at some point, but they are especially problematic for the power generation industry itself - specifically power plants. Diesel generators are counted on to be there during outages to protect a power plant's critical system and to avoid failures which can be disastrous in some cases.  Power plants that use diesel generators for backup emergency power include coal, natural gas, oil, nuclear, hydro, wind, and solar.  Substations and switchyards are also discussed as they play a key role in distributing electricity. Landfill gas energy projects, or green energy power plants, are also explored.
