Phases & Voltage Options for Industrial Power Generators

Diesel GeneratorWhen deciding on what backup generator to purchase, determining the correct electrical configuration should be right near the top of your check list.  This starts with making sure you have the proper phase, kW, hertz, and voltage to handle your specific application.  Since this can be a fairly complex electrical subject, we get questions from customers on phases and voltages every day.  This article explains the different phases, common voltage options generators offer, and how many commercial gensets can have their electrical configurations altered to fit any power environment. Details on how to determine your required voltage and what is involved when we adjust the existing voltage of a genset are also included.
