How Do Petrol Generators Work?
Petrol generators provide electricity by running a petrol-powered engine. The engine turns on an alternator on-board, generating electrical power. There are power outlets on the generator, which allows you to plug in extension cords, appliances and electric-powered tools so that they can be used easily by power from the generator.
Generally, the more powerful the petrol generator, the more outlets will be available, and the more appliances or products can be run simultaneously.
Typical components that make up a petrol generator include an internal combustion engine, a starter, an alternator, outlets, and a fuel tank.
Portable Petrol Generators
When all power is out, for e.g. during a power outage, there are many situations we still need power urgently. This is where a petrol generator can come in very handy. Whether it’s for work, or simply to help you use the most important appliances at home, a generator can be a great help when you need it most.
There are different generators available, including portable petrol generators and standby generator systems. Standby generators are usually permanently installed and they switch on automatically when the power goes down. These generators are usually seen in commercial buildings, hospitals, factories, and more.
Portable petrol generators are very handy as they can easily be moved from one place to the next. They need to be manually started, making a name very convenient to use whenever the power is out. With different sizes generators available, they can easily be used at home.
What Size Petrol Generator Do I Need?
It is always based to accurately determine the size and type of generator you will need. This depends on various factors, and in order to get an accurate reading, it is always recommended that you work with a qualified electrician to do a load test on your premises.
However, when you want to buy a petrol generator you can use various methods to help determine size to choose.
Things you should consider include:
- how many appliances you need to run simultaneously
- the location of the generator
- the running conditions
- maintenance requirements
The more items or appliances you need to run at the same time, the higher the output of your generator needs to be. Keep in mind that your generator should preferably run at an average load of 70 to 80 percent to ensure longevity of the system.
The location of your generator is also important, for example, the higher above sea level your output will decrease. The operating temperature is also very important, for example, you don’t want your generator to consistently operate at a temperature above 35°C or 95°F.
As a guide, choosing a generator for the use of smaller power tools such as a portable drill, or even appliances such as small fridge and a television, it’s best to choose a minimum power output of 2.4 kVA. If you are going to use power tools upward of 2,200W, such as a radial saw, a heater, or a small submersible pump, choose a petrol generator with a minimum output of 4.4 kVA. Power tools upward of 3400W are best used with a generator that supplies a minimum capacity of 7 kVA.
