Prime power is required when
there is no other source of power. There
are many differences between PRIME power and STANDBY power the following are but
a few of them.
Because of their higher running hours, a prime power generator must run economically. It is also important that should something go wrong, parts are readily, locally and quickly available. Prime rated gensets must therefore have established service and parts networks so that warranty work can be done at or as close as possible to your location. Parts should be available from local parts networks.
Power generation is a high torque application for an engine. All generators consume oil. Prime rated generators tend to have larger lubricating oil reservoirs. We have extended run, automatic oil top up systems available.
Backup or standby is a backup to utility power. Because usage is intermittent Standby rated generators, have higher performance ratings by at about 10% to 15%. While many generators are rated for both prime and backup there are also less expensive generators available rated only for backup. View our page on home standby generators.
If your application has the generator running for longer periods of time consider cogeneration. An amazing amount of heat can be harvested and put to profitable use when you run your generator.
Examples of co-generation:
Why purchase expensive diesel fuel and then dissipate 70% of BTU into the environment?
