Choosing a portable generating set | Kohler-SDMO

 

Choosing your generating set

A generating set is chosen according to its use and to the devices to power.

Based on these two parameters, you will find the generating set that meets your needs, whether gasoline or diesel, small or large tank, conventional alternator, AVR or Inverter.

Choosing the right generating set

 

 

How much generating set power do I need?

 

Undersizing or oversizing a generating set can cause premature wear and damage the generating set and connected equipment.

Hence we must define the appropriate power.

This choice is made according to the type of device to be supplied and its power.

Depending on their type, their nominal power must be multiplied by a coefficient to determine the minimum power requirement (MPR) of the generating set.

 

For example, a PERFORM 3000 (max 2800 W) is sufficient to power a 2000 W power chisel, but not a circular saw of the same power.

 

Resistive tools and devices

These are devices fitted with an electric resistance and some tools equipped with a motor.

Generating set power = device or tool power x 1 to 1.2
