Buying an electrical generator takes a lot of research to ensure you end up with a machine that will provide you with the power you need when you need it. One crucial part of that research is the power rating of the generators. The power rating is established by the manufacturer and lets consumers know what kinds of applications are suitable for the generator or how much it can be used.
Anyone who is new to diesel generators might scratch their head when they first see one and wonder, “Why does an electrical generator need a battery?” But the answer is very simple: to provide the generator with enough start-up power to turn on during a facility-wide power outage. Then, once it’s up and running, the generator will create its’ own electrical power to provide electricity to connected systems and components.
