Standby Generator Packages with Power Management Options

Home with Power Supplied By Briggs and Stratton Generator During an Outage

Power Management options make the most efficient use of a standby generator system.

Without Power Management, two heavy loads that run at the same time and overload the generator will trip the generator’s main breaker and leave the entire house without power until someone manually resets the breaker.

Power management eliminates this problem. If Load A is already running and Load B tries to start, but would overload the generator, starting is delayed until Load A finishes. This allows two high priority loads such as central air conditioners to operate alternately and still keep the house cool.

Utilizing power management saves money two ways. The initial generator purchase cost is lower. The operating costs are much lower than a larger, liquid-cooled generator without power management that requires more fuel and more expensive maintenance.

Power Management is usually the function of the Automatic Transfer Switch since it is the switch and not the generator that distributes power throughout the house. With Power Management, a generator can supply an entire home and many homeowners won’t even notice the difference that their power is managed efficiently and without interrupting their daily routines.
