Role and use of a generator
What is a generator?
A generator couples a machine that produces energy with an alternator. This tool must be autonomous, which requires a starting source that can have several origins: mechanical, pneumatic or electrical. The generator must be able to cope with consumption peaks although its overload capacity is very limited.
How are generators used?
Generators have many uses, depending on the needs and circumstances. For example, in some cases, it is mandatory to have a generator to ensure continuity of activities in case the main power source is cut off. An example of this is a hospital.
In the French industrial sector, there is a choice of emergency or EJP generators to reduce consumption during off-peak periods It is important to choose a generator that is powerful enough to cope with the energy consumption in professional environments.
