HTG explains how to choose the correct size portable generator

Supplier News

HTG High-Tech Generators  answers the question ‘How do I determine the size of portable generator that I need?’

HTG advises that there are just three factors that require consideration when determining which size of generator is needed and they are:

  1. What is the electrical output of the appliances that the portable generator will be used with?
  2. What is the maximum number of appliances that will be run from the generator at any one time?
  3. How will the power load on the generator be managed to ensure that the generator power output will not be exceeded?

A smaller generator is most suited to running 1 or 2 small appliances simultaneously and rotating between other appliances as needed.

A larger generator will be required if the intention is to run larger or multiple appliances at the same time.

Correct management of the power load is essential, regardless of the generator size.  Always ensure that specified generator limits are being worked with in and plan to rotate appliances as much as possible.
