Generator & Inverter Power Generator | Emergency Power Generator for Power Failure & Blackout
Why do you need a power generator?
An emergency generator is used to quickly bridge electrical bottlenecks and is the optimal precaution for a blackout. It is a comforting feeling to know that you have a functioning power source in case of a disaster. Sensitive electrical appliances in particular, which can hardly cope with a power cut, benefit from an emergency power source in the event of an emergency.
Mobile power generators are often used wherever electricity is needed away from civilisation. Even when working on the house or in the garden, it can happen that there is no power socket nearby or that the extension cable is not sufficient. Power generators are also increasingly used for camping, on holiday, at parties or on construction sites.
Buying a power generator is therefore not only useful for protecting electrical appliances from power outages.
How much power do I need for the power generator?
How much power your generator should have depends on its intended use. The higher the output from the power generator, the more appliances can be connected.
Especially electrical consumers with a high energy demand, such as microwaves, construction machines or lawn mowers, need a powerful power generator.
If you only want to connect a computer now and then, you don't need a particularly high output, but you should pay attention to constant current without voltage fluctuations.
4 Questions to find the right generator
1. In which situations do I want to use the generator?
To decide which devices you really want to operate, imagine the situation in which you want to use the generator. If you want to use it in the garden, for example, decide exactly which individual consumers you want to operate with it.
Think about what you really need the generator for and which electrical appliances you want to run in combination. 2.
2. Which consumers do I want to operate with the power generator?
Sensitive consumers: Particularly sensitive electrical appliances such as notebooks, mobile phones, music systems or measuring instruments usually do not require high power, but "clean" energy without large fluctuations. That is why we recommend an inverter power generator. Modern inverter technology converts direct current into alternating current and generates a constant current without large voltage fluctuations. With all other power generators, there is a risk of damage to sensitive electrical appliances.
Ohmic consumers: Ohmic loads convert electricity directly into another form of energy such as heat or light. These include light bulbs, cooker tops, electric heaters and similar appliances. See how much power you need for your consumer (for example 800 watts). As a guideline, you can assume an additional quarter, which you add on. In this example, you are then at 1000 watts. If you want to use several ohmic loads at the same time, add the power and then add another quarter.
Inductive consumers: All power tools and motor-driven devices fall into this group, such as washing machines, drills, lawn mowers and many more. At start-up, three to six times the rated power is required as starting current; during operation, only about 70 % of the input power is actually provided due to energy losses of the coil winding. This means: If you want to operate an inductive consumer with 500 watts, your power generator should be able to provide at least 3000 watts (6 x 500 watts). Older units require up to ten times more current at start-up, so add a little extra to be on the safe side.
3. What do I want to use to power the generator?
Diesel and petrol generators are the most common generators that are purchased and used. Experience shows that a diesel generator requires little fuel, has a high mileage and rarely needs maintenance. Due to these characteristics, diesel generators are mainly used on construction sites.
However, petrol-powered generators are usually cheaper to buy than diesel models, mobile and usually quieter than diesel generators with comparable performance data. Since fuel costs more, however, they are more expensive to consume.
There are also generators that run on gas or solar power, as well as special PTO generators that are connected directly to the tractor.
4. What features should a good power generator have?
A good generator is convenient and safe to use. It has sufficient power, even if several electrical consumers are operated simultaneously. Only sufficient power ensures an unrestricted flow of electricity. Mileage should also be considered when buying a generator. Buy a generator that can compensate for a power failure for many hours at a stretch.
Low consumption and an acceptable noise level are also decision criteria for many buyers.
