Choosing the Right Size Standby Generator So Important?
If you choose the right size standby electrical generator, you will enjoy greater security including:
unexpected system failures
- No shutdowns due to overload
- Increased longevity
- Appropriate performance
- Smoother start-up and operation
- Reduced maintenance
- Greater personal safety
- Less possibility of damage to electrical systems and appliances
Electrical Power Generation Definitions:
Ampere - Watt Conversion: You may find the power
requirements of tools noted in amperes. In order to convert the power
requirement of a tool from ampere to watts, follow these calculations,
or you can also use our handy new Power Calculator.
For reactive loads (motors): Wattage = amperes
x volts x power factor
Voltage = the measure of the difference in electrical energy between two points. Any electrical charge that is free to move about will move from the higher energy to the lower one, taking a bit of that energy difference with it. This movement of charge is called a current. ReadySource Diesel generators can handle voltage capacity of 120 volts, 240 volts and up.
