What is a Power Generator?
A power generator is a device that transforms any form of motion into usable electricity. While this is normally accomplished by a type of piston engine or flywheel design, there are many types of power generators in use by residential and commercial customers.
How does a Generator work?
Generators move a magnet near a wire to create a steady flow of electrons. The action that forces this movement ranges from hand cranks and steam engines to nuclear fission.
What is the difference between a Power Center and a Power Generator?
A power center is different from a power generator because a power center requires connection to a main pole or generator to work while a power generator creates power on its own.
What applications require a Power Generator?
Power generators are ideal for powering:
Computers and more
What is the difference between a generator and an inverter?
Generators – these have been around the longest and are the most commonly used. It usually relies on gasoline or propane to create an electrical current that charges your appliances.
Inverters – has the ability to change a direct current (DC) to an alternating current (AC) which is what most appliances rely upon. These can be smaller in size and are going to be more fuel efficient when compared to a generator.
