I am no expert in power generators. BUT, I do know that there is a BIG
consideration in sizing generators that could come into play. Buying extra
units could cost you big bucks in maintenance costs.
With something in the order of 15-20 or more KW, you run serious danger of
damaging the unit if it is not being used at something like 65% of rated
output. I cannot recall, but I think the rings, valves, etc. do not fair well
when running a low percentage of capacity. We installed 25+ KW units in
at customer's insistence and despite strong warnings from the supplier
we installed large load banks to heat up the Kuwait air to keep units at a
decent percentage of ratings.
