Standby Generator Facts I – What’s a generator?
MTS power products carry generators of all shapes and sizes, today we wanted to go over the “standby generator facts’ so you can understand better what a generator- and by extension a standby generator is/does. That said, what is a generator, what does it do? Generators, aka ‘Gen Sets are systems designed to use gasoline or diesel fuels to “generate” electrical power for use with electrical devices. Generators are a very important aspect of running just about any business, and in certain industries or practices- having one vs not having one can even mean life or death! Imagine a busy hospital, full of patients that totally lose power with no way to restore or back it up.

Standby Generator Facts II – Okay so what’s a standby generator?
Now that we know a bit more about generators, what make s generator a ‘standby generator’? Well firstly know that there is an international standard- ISO 8528- that rates the power output of generators, and classifies their purposes. The many gen classifications can be boiled down to basically two categories- Prime and Standby. Prime generators are designed to provide some form of power on a regular basis. The amount of power- or how often they provide may vary based on the kind of generator- prime or standby. Let’s take a look:
- Prime – Generators intended to provide continuous power in situations that may need to rely on a generator always, and don’t have easy access to normal continuous power.
- Standby –Generators intended to be used as an emergency, or backup power for situations in which the primarily available power sources fails or become temporarily unavailable.
