The Different Types of Power Generators

It doesn’t matter what part of the country you call home, or home for your business. Every one of us is susceptible to the nuisance of power outages, especially in the often severe weather summer months. Securing a reliable back up method of power generation is important for our industries, and especially our businesses, whether large or small.

There are several popular types of power generation, from small, portable RV and residential units, to the larger commercial and industrial units that will supply power for the critical businesses that just cannot afford even one minute without power. The four main types of power generators are:

  • EMD Generators
  • Diesel Generators
  • Portable Generators
  • Natural Gas Generators

EMD GeneratorsEMD Generators

EMD Generators, or electro motive diesel generators, are low RPM, low-risk, no maintenance generators that have a wide variable of performance functions.

Diesel GeneratorsDiesel Generators

A diesel generator is the combination of a diesel engine with an electrical generator, often an alternator, to generate electrical energy. Diesel generators are best used for emergency power supply, but are also critical for more complex applications such

as peak-lopping, grid support and exporting energy to the power grid.

Portable GeneratorsPortable Generators

A portable generator is any generator on wheels that usually runs off of gasoline as fuel, making them perfect for commercial or industrial use.

Natural Gas Generators

Natural Gas Generators

Natural gas generators are simply power generators that run on natural gas as the fuel source. The type of power generator you select will depend on your personal power generation needs. You can choose from a variety of generator sets ranging in size from 20kW – 2500kW and engines ranging in size from 150hp – 4000hp.
