What is the difference between Prime Power and Standby?

Posted by Aurora Generators on

GenSet Rating Classifications ISO 8528 identifies four different generator rating classifications: continuous, prime, limited-time power, and emergency standby. Many companies also  employ two additional classifications to further define the ratings for its generator products. Continuous – As the term implies, continuous power generators are designed to provide power on an ongoing basis throughout the year. The average output of a continuous power gen set is 70 to 100 percent of the rating and is designed to provide 100-percent power for every operating hour during the year. Continuous power gensets are best used in situations where a limited amount of power load...

What is better, gas or diesel powered generators?

There are many reasons to choose a diesel-powered generator over a gas powered generator. Here are a few of the main ones. In the event of a natural disaster, gas and propane lines are usually shut down by the utility companies prevent further destruction leaving those customers who have a natural gas or propane generator with no fuel. Diesel is readily available, safe to store for long periods of time and more accessible. It used in construction, farming, heavy machinery, and transportation. Some people even make their own fuel called biodiesel. In a disaster situation when you can't depend on...

Last year (2017) was one of the worst years for hurricanes and natural disasters in the USA and the Caribbean. It appears millions of people got caught off guard and then the desperation kicked in... “We need a generator NOW” was a very popular line when hundreds of people flooded our phone lines requesting a generator that they wanted to be shipped “Today.” Of course the stock we had on hand quickly depleted and then the long lead times came into play. Not what anyone wanted to hear. Every manufacturer can only produce so many units at any given time...

Do You Require A Single or Three Phase Generator?

Posted by Aurora Generators on

Do You Require A Single or Three Phase Generator?

There are two types of systems available in electric circuit:  Single Phase - Normally for residential use   Three Phase - Primarily for Industrial use     Single-phase and three-phase generators provide power differently. The most obvious evidence of this is seen in power delivery. Both types provide AC power, but a three-phase system produces three separate waves of power, delivered in sequence. This ensures a continuous uninterrupted flow of power that never drops to zero and makes three-phase generators more powerful than single-phase generators. Single-phase generators deliver one constant wave of power however, the power level varies with the electrical...
