Do I Need A Single Or 3 Phase Generator?
Single phase generators power up to 240 volts and are ideal for smaller power loads found on residential and rural properties. 3 phase generators, on the other hand, power up to 415 volts and are great for large and demanding power needs on industrial, commercial and mining sites.
What’s The Difference Between Single & 3 Phase Power?
3 phase machines deliver power in three alternating currents. The supply of power is constant and never drops below zero, making them suitable for powering large, demanding loads on commercial, agricultural and industrial job sites. 3 phase power is more efficient, generating three times as much power as single phase systems. Single phase power, on the other hand, delivers power through one phase and one neutral wire. The peaks and troughs in voltage mean power occasionally falls below zero. It’s typically used to power residential homes and small businesses.
What Size Single Phase Generator Do I Need?
Simply combine and calculate the total wattage of everything you want the generator to power. For example, if your total power needs come to 9,000 watts (9kW), look for a generator that supports this output.
