Load Study

In sizing, it is vital that the generator capacity is tailored for the maximum demand it is likely to face. In doing so it is also important that cognisance is taken of the future growth of the business. This will obviate the danger of outgrowing the generator investment too quickly. Conversely an unnecessarily oversized generator is an over capitalisation. It is therefore critical to make a correct assessment.

We believe that the best way to accurately ascertain the electrical load is to undertake a “load study” period. Specialist recording equipment is connected to the business’s point of connection (generally the main electrical board) for a period of 7 days whereby various data, including the peak demand figures, are collected. The load profile and characteristics are then analysed and the appropriate generator size determined by our engineers.
