FTG Technical Tuesday – On a generator, what is the difference between Prime kW and Standby kW?

Prime Power Rating – is the rating in kW that the generator can continuously run for without issue. Standby Power Rating – is the rating in kW that the generator can handle in a short term overload capacity, normally at 10% above Prime Power.

FTG is the exclusive distributor in the US for TecnoGen Generators which are considered Prime Power Generators. Have a technical question? Call (855) 303-7900 or email nick@ftgequipment.com
