An emergency generator is a device used for generating electricity and it is used in the event that a regular power supply fails. An emergency generator consists of two basic components: an internal combustion engine and a generator. In essence, emergency power generators are used to generate electrical energy. In this article, we will learn more about how emergency generators work.
Common Backup Power Units
Gas emergency generator: Gas turbines are commonly used to drive emergency generators in larger plants.
Emergency generator with diesel: This unit is powered by liquid fuel, which is stored in a tank and is therefore always available.
Battery-powered emergency generators: These generators usually use a rechargeable battery or accumulator in combination with an inverter.
Combinations of batteries and combustion engines: When a power failure occurs, the batteries first provide the power supply and then the engines provide help.
Prices of emergency generators depend on the size of the generators.
Small standby generator professionally installed: around $2,500-$4,500.
Mid-sized standby generator: $4,000-$10,000(depending on the size and the quality of the cabinets.
A large capacity (22 to 45 kW): $9,000-$15,000 or more.
