Prime Power is the main (prime) source of power on the site, whereas Standby Power (emergency power) is used when the main source of power fails. The main application for Standby Generators is to act as emergency power for when the Grid (mains) suffers a power outage i.e. a power cut occurs. Continuous power is similar to prime power but has a base load rating. It can supply power continuously to a constant load, but does not have the ability to handle overload conditions or work as well with variable loads.
The power factor (pf) is typically defined as the ratio between kilowatts (kW) and kilovolt amps (kVa) that is drawn from an electrical load. It is determined by the generator’s connected load. Generators with higher power factors more efficiently transfer energy to the connected load, while generators with a lower power factor are not as efficient and result in increased power costs.
Determining exactly what size of generator to get is often very difficult and involves a number of factors and considerations. Our team can assess your needs and offer a tailored solution specific to your generator requirements. We’re always available to offer the technical information and knowledge to help you choose the right product.
The primary difference between kW (kilowatt) and kVA (kilovolt-ampere) is the power factor. kW is the unit of real power and kVA is a unit of apparent power.
In relation to industrial and commercial generators, kW is most commonly used when referring to generators in the United States, and a few other countries that use 60 Hz, while the majority of the rest of the world typically uses kVa as the primary value when referencing generator sets.
