Diesel operational life

Last Updated: Jul 20, 2016 04:17PM MDT
When calculating the expected life of the generator, HOMER divides the generator life in operating hours by the number of hours the generator operates per year.  In the example I mentioned, the generator happened to operate 8760 hours per year, but that is not necessarily the case.  If HOMER is reporting that the generator with the 87,600 hour liftime is lasting 26.7 years, that must be because the generator operates 3280 hours per year.  You can check the number of operating hours per year on the generator tab of the Simulation Results window.
