GENERATOR STARTING CAPABILITIES OF

Large Motor Loads

Transient performance specifications can go a long way in describing a generator’s ability to start, accept, and shed large motor loads. Factors that can impact transient response are fuel type, engine type (naturally aspirated or forced induction), and even the number of turbochargers utilized.

Generator specifications often omit transient performance of gensets in situations such as starting large motor loads.
