At Woodlands, we offer generators of all sizes for all industries and applications. Whether you need 20kVA generator hire, 30kVA or 2200kVA, we’ve got you covered. Generator sizing is important and the generator you need depends on the application. Whether it’s event generators, commercial industrial generators or anything in between, we will help you find the right generator sizing for your requirements.
It’s essential to hire a generator that can handle all the power you need. Woodlands has generators of varying capacity, so it’s easy to choose your best option. A 20kVA generator hire is small but mighty and can handle some heavy-duty applications, or you might require several generators for a large scale event.
More is Better Than Less
When it comes to power, it’s better to overestimate than underestimate. The last thing you need is a power shortage at precisely the wrong time. Additionally, an underpowered generator can ‘burn out’ so to speak, and can even damage the appliances connected to it.
The best way to work out what size generator you need is to speak with one of our trained technicians. They’ll be able to ask the right questions and can visit the prospective site with you. There are several factors to consider when determining generator sizing.
Know What’s Being Powered (Leave Nothing Out)
A generator hire expert will establish the right generator for the job. However, you’ll need to provide some information along the way:
List every application that will be plugged into the generator and requires power.
Get the power information for your appliances, both running (continuous) and starting (peak) power for each application or equipment.
It’s helpful if you have the power information represented in Watts. You can use a calculator to convert Amps (A), Kilowatts (kW, kVA), or Horsepower (HP) to Watts (W). Wattage = amps x volts (resistive load) Wattage = (amps x volts) x load factor (for reactive load)
Calculate the combined power requirements in kVA or kW.
You may also find yourself in need of an emergency generator one day. Therefore, it’s good to have the information should you experience a power failure. The right size generator is essential because it:
- Meets safety standards
- Performs more efficiently
- Saves you money on fuel consumption
- Will give you reliability and durability for your application.
