generator-maintenanceData Center Power Generator Maintenance is critical to avoid downtime in a data center environment. There are a number of items to consider when performing maintenance of a generator.

  • Prime Rated Generators are designed to run with 10% overload for 1 hour in any 12 hour period. This should not be exceeded
  • Standby Rated Generators are designed to run at 100% load for the duration of an outage with no overload available
  • Load must be balanced / distributed across all three phases
  • The AMF panel should be used correctly in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions
  • Maintenance must be carried out on a 6 month basis by a qualified and fully trained generator engineer
  • Ensure that only approved parts are used when repairing the generator
  • Keep all maintenance and repair records in a safe place readily available to the generator engineer
  • Report any irregularities (both visual and otherwise) immediately
  • All fuel, oil, water and other fluid levels to be kept full
  • Generator is never allowed to run out of fuel or oil whilst holding the load
  • Generator is never over-loaded and never allowed to run lightly loaded for long periods
  • Generator is run off load once every week for a 5 minute test
  • Generator is run with load once a month

generator-maintenance-02PTS provides data center power generator maintenance contracts as part of a comprehensive service plan specifically designed to provide preventative maintenance for generators. In addition, as an enterprise grows in terms of size and complexity, it can become unwieldy to maintain service records and keep up-to-date on preventative maintenance cycles for generators as well as other facility infrastructure components such as CRACs, UPSs and PDUs.

PTS’ Data Center Managed Maintenance Service includes six (6) levels which may be customized to the requirements of your data center and skill set of your operational or facility personnel.
