Standby Generator FAQ's

What is a Standby Generator?

A standby generator is an automated backup electrical system that activates in times of a utility outage. Within seconds of a utility outage, an automatic transfer switch senses the power loss and commands the generator to start and transfers the electrical load to the generator. The generator then provides power until the utility power returns. This return of power signals to the standby generator to shut off, which it does, returning to standby mode to wait for the next outage. These generators use diesel, natural gas, or liquid propane gas and self-maintain through automated weekly tests. Standby generators have a range of applications, such as critical safety systems supplying standby power to elevators, fire protection systems, standby lighting, or medical and life support equipment to several residential applications such as backup for security systems and household appliances as refrigerators, stoves, and water heaters. The most common features of the standby generator are low noise levels, compact & fully enclosed designs, remote start and automatic transfer switches in addition to extended warranties and affordability.

Why Choose a Standby Generator?

The main reason for selecting a standby generator is as a backup power solution for a residential, commercial or industrial application to ensure continuous power in the event of a power outage. They provide a solution during extended power outages, depending on the fuel type and configuration of the generator. Unlike prime or continuous generators, standby generators are only used for situations where power outages occur due to weather, natural or man-made disasters, or regular blackouts due to an ineffective power grid. These generators are found in locations where continuous power is critical, such as elevators, fire protection systems, standby lighting, or medical and life support equipment. They are also typically seen in residential applications as a backup for security systems and household appliances as refrigerators, stoves, and water heaters. Suppose you are unsure which generator is best; in that case, our professional generator sales team are ready to provide expert advice and guidance, ensuring you choose the right standby generator to meet your needs.

What Size Standby Generator Do You Need?

Standby generators come in lots of different sizes; deciding the right size for your home or commercial application must consider the size of the location and the anticipated electrical load. Standby generators also have the consideration of an automatic transfer switch (ATS) to include. This switch tells the generator when to turn on and off and requires a qualified electrician for setup. Ultimately the generator size will be based on the total running watts and starting KVA of all the circuits, appliances and mechanical systems connected to the generator. The calculation is a complicated one; it combines the running watts (representing the power consumed by an electrical motor while operating normally) with the starting KVA (due to the extra electrical surge generated each time the electrical motor starts up). Due to this calculation challenge, we recommend contacting Blue Diamond's expert team to discuss 1300 998 647.

Standby Vs Prime Power Generator

A standby generator (sometimes referred to as backup or emergency) are generators which can be installed at your business, commercial or industrial site to automatically switch on and provide power to keep your operations running in the case of a power outage. In essential service buildings like hospitals, or data centres & construction/commercial sites, a standby generator is often a must have. For industries where a power outage is simply not an option, our standby generators are the perfect solution. Unlike conventional diesel generators & prime power generators, standby diesel generators are often not used for continuous operation, only switching on in the case of an emergency, and then (if paired with an ATS Panel) switch off when mains power is restored.
