What is the meaning of kVA for a generator?
  • Kilo-volt ampere (kVA) is a unit of apparent
    power.
  • This unit is relatively unknown outside the
    diesel generator industry.
  • kVA is an electrical term used to describe the
    amount of electrical power that a meter can feed
    to a building or site.
  • Kilowatt (kW) is the unit most commonly used and
    is conveys real power, while kVA conveys apparent
    power.
  • The basic difference is the power factor (usually
    0.8).

What is the meaning of kVA for a generator?
  • kVA x Power factor (typically 0.8) kW.
  • A 10 kVA generator can handle a power load of 8
    kW.
  • To be safe, you should expect the generator to
    handle a power load of about 4 kW of power
    efficiently.
  • You can definitely increase the load, but the
    generator will trip if the power exceeds 8kW.
  • If you are looking to buy a generator, I would
    recommend you consult an expert to have a clear
    ide.

What is the meaning of kVA for a generator?
  • Although there are quite a few brands around, Id
    suggest TMTL Engines-Eicher Engines.
  • They have a wide range of reliable power
    generator options.
  • They are fuel-efficient and have the longest
    service period and the longest overhauling period
    in the industry.
  • These features alone make TMTL diesel generators
    worth considering.
