Diesel engine The two stroke cycle engine is more favored for diesel power plant. The air required for the diesel engine is drown through the air filter from the atmosphere and compressed inside the cylinder. The fuel from the diesel engine is drawn through a filter from the all day tank and injected into the cylinder through fuel injectors. Because of the high temperature and pressure of the compressed air, the fuel burns and the burnt gases expand to do work on the moving part inside the cylinder called piston. This movement of the piston rotates a flywheel and the engine is directly coupled to electric generator. The gases after expansion inside the cylinder is exhausted into the atmosphere and passes through a silencer in order to reduce the noise.
