Normally when the generator engine starts then the engine jacket water pump is turned on. This water pump used to drag the water from inside the engine and send it to the radiator and after cooling it send back cold water to the engine. When the engine starts, the thermostat valve of the cooling system stays closed so that the engine water can just only flow inside the engine. After running for a while, the temperature of the water increased almost 80-850C then the thermostat valve opens automatically.

Now the hot water from the engine goes to the radiator. Air flows through the fan on the radiator and for this reason the radiator's water becomes cold. After cooling, water goes back to the engine and cools the engine. However, by using this cooling system, some other hot areas use to cool like Lube Oil Cooler, Turbo Charger, Cylinder Head, Engine Liner and After Cooler.

Thanks
