Getting a generator that can handle your power generation needs is a critical aspect of the purchasing decision.  Whether you are interested in prime or standby power, if your new generator can't meet your requirements then it simply won't be doing anyone any good instead it can put undue stress on the unit and even damage some of the devices connected to it.  Unfortunately, determining exactly what size of generator to get is often very difficult and involves a  number of factors and considerations.  Making a choice amongst single phase, three phase, standby or prime, manual or auto start generators can be mind-boggling. This was written to help you get a better idea of how the sizing process works and some key things to keep in mind.  This is not a substitute for a certified Generator specialist, which we always suggest talking to before buying, but it should provide you with enough information to get a solid understanding of some of the key things that are involved. Generator Size Variations:  With the latest advancements in the field of electrical engineering, generators are now available in a wide range of sizes. Generators with power supply capacities of 1kW to 50kW are readily available in the home use markets, while industrial generators are anywhere from 50kW to over 5 MVA.

Generator Sizing - How Much Power?: 

People believe smaller generators can be used for standby electric power because they are not running all the time. This is not only a myth but can actually be very detrimental. Unfortunately, generator under sizing is one of the most common mistakes committed by buyers.  Not only does it involve the risks of damaging your new asset (the generator), but it can also damage other assets connected to it, create hazardous situations, and even limit overall productivity of the unit and/or the business relying on it.  If nothing else, the key thing to remember here is that more is always better than less.

How to Determine the Right Size Engine or Generator:

While there is no substitute for having a certified generator technician perform an inspection and calculate everything for you, these guidelines do offer some great starting points:

Knowing Your Requirements: 

Going to a dealer and buying the cheapest generator available without any other consideration
is clearly not the best approach. It is always better to delve deep into your power generation
requirements before making a choice. You can do this in the following ways:
Make a list of the items that need to be powered by the generator
Make a note of the starting and running wattage of the respective items
Calculate the total power requirements in KVA or KW .

How to Find the Starting and Running Wattage:

Getting the right starting and running wattage of the devices you intend to power is crucial for calculating the accurate power requirements.Normally, you will find these in the identification plate or the owner's manual in the buyer's kit of each respective device, tool, appliance, or other electrical equipment. Alternatively you can look at our Power Usage Chart The chart is simply provided as an example to demonstrate how starting and running wattages differ, and how each device has specific consumption needs.  If you have questions over any particular items you can contact the manufacturer, consult an electrician, or contact us

Advantages of choosing the right size generator:

Now that you have an idea on how to choose the appropriate size of generator to suit your needs, here's just a few of the benefits obtained
by going through that process:
No unexpected system failures
No shutdowns due to capacity overload
Increased longevity of the generator
Guaranteed performance
Smoother hassle-free maintenance
Increased system life span
Assured personal safety
Much smaller chance of asset damage
