A diesel generator is a diesel engine combined with an electric generator (usually an alternator) to generate electricity. A diesel compression-ignition engine is typically designed to run on fuel oil, but it may also be adapted to run on other liquid fuels or even natural gas. Diesel generators are used in areas with no power grid connection or as an emergency power back-up in the event of a grid failure.
Diesel generators are more popular than gas-powered generators because they are more powerful and economical. There are several popular brands of diesel generators on the market. John Deere, a brand known to most Americans, carries several kinds of diesel generators.
