Installation of Generators in Laval, Montréal & the North Shore
Understand how a generator works
An emergency generator is a stand-alone device intended to produce electric current. Generally, it consists of a heat engine that starts an alternator. The latter will generate electricity. Depending on the size, weight and type of the generator set, its use varies, ranging from household use to industrial use.
The different types of generators
If the operation of generators is generally the same, there are several types that differ in their use and power.
These are versatile back-up generators which are recommended for home use. You can use it for your various crafts if the work area does not yet have a power source. This device can operate an entire home.
Its power generally varies from 1.5 to 6 kW. As the power output is low, it only provides a single-phase power supply and generates relatively little noise. It can have a 2- or 4-stroke engine.
This type of generator is mainly used on construction sites rather than for the home due to noisy operation. You will find powers ranging from a few dozen to several hundred kilowatts.
It can also supply an entire commercial building with electricity in the event of a sudden blackout. It produces single-phase or three-phase current according to your needs.
Soundproof generator sets
Unlike the first two categories, soundproof generators are enclosed in a special housing to produce as little noise as possible. Thus, they can be installed near offices or high traffic areas without disturbing the occupants of the premises.
Their engines usually run on gasoline to keep them as quiet as possible. Their power is lower compared to that of groups running on diesel.
