What Is an Emergency Generator?

Emergency generator are an essential part of building systems that keep important equipment running when power is interrupted. They also help with fire protection and prevent loss of data.

What can destroy a generator?

They can be installed inside or outside a facility, above ground or on the roof — depending on code and project parameters. Ideally, they reside on the same level as other systems and equipment so that if water is needed to extinguish fires, access is not restricted.

A transfer switch (TS) selects a source of emergency power from standard utility company-provided power or a standby generator, and conducts it to critical loads. TSs can be manually operated (static TS) or automatically triggered when they sense the source is out of service.

Unlike batteries, which are charged only when a primary power supply fails, an emergency generator is a self-contained electrical system that can produce electricity and operate for long periods of time even when the primary power source is offline. This gives you the ability to maintain power until utility power is restored, providing peace of mind and a comfortable environment for your family during an outage.

The EPA has tightened emissions requirements for stationary generator sets, which means that manufacturers must be particularly careful to develop technologies that reduce fuel consumption and optimize in-cylinder technology. MTU is among the leaders in addressing these issues through low-load operation mitigation and fuel economy, reports MTU Americas senior director of sales and marketing Steve Ponstein.
