Understanding Electric Generators

As a society highly dependent on electricity, the portable electric generator can be an invaluable tool. It serves as a backup in an emergency, whether you're a single household or a hospital housing hundreds of patients reliant on medical equipment. Generators are also useful in environments where electricity is not readily available, such as industrial or commercial work sites. There, contractors use them to supply their equipment with power. Moreover, diesel generators provide even greater amounts of power and are used as backup if the public electric company experiences a failure of the power grid. If you're looking to buy a generator for your home or business, here are a few key terms to better understand how they work.

  • Electromagnetic - Whether the generator runs on gas, propane, or diesel, it produces electricity when a metal coil spins between the two poles of a magnet, or the magnetic field. This is electromagnetic energy.
  • Amperage - Within that electromagnetic circuit are the flowing electrons that create our usable energy. We measure that flow in amps.
  • Wattage - Generators come in a variety of sizes. Their wattage indicates how much energy that particular unit is capable of producing.
  • Horsepower - This measures the machine's ability to produce wattage, and at what speed. When it comes to generators, the horsepower isn't especially critical.
  • Continuous load - This refers to the rate of electricity production that the machine can sustain, for a minimum of three hours. The power output should remain steady without variation in a safe, quality generator.

    If you're a home or business owner, and you live in a rural area, you may want to consider purchasing a generator. A generator is a piece of equipment that can be used to power a home or small company, and it can be incredibly useful to anyone living in a remote area. Generators can be powered many different ways. They are commonly powered, for instance, with diesel and electricity. Both diesel and electricity are inexpensive and reliable, and so many people choose to power their generators this way. But they can also be powered with propane and natural gas. Certain small, portable generators are even battery powered. All of these power sources work reasonably well, and they should all be able to provide you with the backup or emergency power that you need. Buying a generator might not cost you as much as you think. You can often find discounts at your local manufacturer or distributor. Industrial supply centers also often sell discounted machines, as well. Sometimes you can even find discounted generators at a commercial retail center. And you don't necessarily need to buy generators in bulk to receive these discounts! If you do decide to buy a generator for your home or business, an independent contractor should be able to help you set up and install your new purchase. So, if you're interested in finding an emergency or backup power source - or even if you'd just like to find something small and portable to provide you with a little extra power - you really ought to consider purchasing a generator today!
