frequently asked questions

frequently asked questions

Operating your mobile genset safely helps protect you and your employees from potential hazards. Consider the following factors for safe operation:

Read the owner’s manual

Familiarize yourself with the safety rules. The manual will instruct you on what to do or not to do when operating your mobile genset.

Keep it outside

You should always keep your mobile genset outside when running. Even if you’re running tools indoors, never leave your mobile genset indoors, as it can cause a dangerous build-up of carbon monoxide.

Allow for ample ventilation

When operating the mobile genset, place it in a location that allows for adequate ventilation. If you are concerned about safety, install a carbon monoxide detector as an additional safety feature.

Place it on level ground

When positioning your mobile genset, choosing the right level is essential. Choose a parking lot or cement job site as a stable surface to set your mobile genset on; place blocks behind the wheels to prevent it from rolling.

Install an automatic transfer switch

If you are in an area that experiences frequent power outages, consider installing an automatic transfer switch (also known as an ATS). As the name suggests, this switch automatically signals the mobile genset to run during a power outage. It will then disconnect the mobile genset after power is restored. The switch also isolates the mobile genset from the power line, protecting you and any utility workers from the possibility of backfeeding.

Be careful operating it in the rain

Extreme caution is essential when you are expected to run a mobile genset in wet weather. Gensets produce high voltages that can be fatal if connected, handled, operated, or misused. Check out some safety tips for using a mobile genset in wet weather. Be sure to consult an expert or have a professional on-site to handle the mobile genset, especially when inclement weather is a predictable factor.

Grounding the mobile genset

Part of keeping your mobile genset running safely is knowing how to ground it. Grounding the mobile genset involves connecting a copper grounding wire to the neutral electric conductor terminals. This wire carries faulty electricity from the mobile genset to the ground, protecting you and your equipment. All mobile gensets require grounding. Failure to do so may result in:

  • Overheating of equipment may cause a fire.
  • You or your employees are experiencing an electrical shock.
  • Electrical overload can damage the mobile genset.
  • Explosion caused by stray electricity contacting fuel tanks
  • While every situation can be different, here are some general steps to help you successfully ground your mobile genset.

Install the rod: Use a hammer to drive the rod into the ground to the correct depth per local electrical codes. If the rocks are in the ground, you can angle the stick at a greater 45-degree angle. Cover any remaining portion of the rod with safety clamps to protect bystanders while the mobile genset is running.

Strip the insulation from the copper wire: Before coiling the copper wire on the ground round, you will need to strip 6-12 inches of insulation.

Coil the copper wire: Use a pair of pliers to coil the copper wire around the ground rod.

Connect the copper wire: With the mobile genset off, loosen the grounding bolt and wrap the copper wire tightly around it. Then, tighten the bolt using a wrench.

Check the connection: Once done, having an electrician check the connection is best. An ohmic resistance of zero indicates a stable connection.

As the name suggests, a trailer-mounted genset is attached to a custom trailer and ball hitch, enabling the unit to be moved from location to location as needed. These gensets can meet the demand for backup power for small to medium construction sites, disaster recovery projects, events, or extensive facilities such as hospitals, hotels, emergency services, manufacturing and processing plants, etc.

trailer genset is relatively easy and safe to transport on public roads as it meets department of transportation (DOT) requirements. This includes brake and signal lights, safety chains or more heavy-duty connectors for larger trailers, and a license plate holder.

factors to consider when buying a mobile genset

Before you purchase mobile genset, you need to do your research to find one that matches your needs. Consider the following factors before purchasing a mobile genset.

Power output

Regarding the genset’s output, you must consider its rated output and maximum output. Rated output or running power is the power a genset can continuously provide to power tools and equipment. Maximum output or surge power is a genset’s power to start the tools. These power levels should match the amount needed to power your tools and devices.

Identify critical loads

Not all equipment is equally important when using a mobile genset for power. Some equipment is critical to maintaining operations, while others can be temporarily shut down. Determine what your critical loads should be included in your total power consumption calculations.

Running and starting wattage

Many electrical appliances and machinery experience a surge in power consumption at start-up. Known as inrush currents, these start-up surges should be considered when sizing a mobile genset to ensure a smooth and reliable power supply. The capacity of the mobile genset should be sufficient to meet the continuous power requirements and start-up surges of critical equipment.

Power calculations

You will need to calculate the total power (usually expressed in watts (W) or kilowatts (kW)) required for all the equipment you plan to run. 

  1. Write down all the equipment and appliances you will need power for your mobile business.
  2. Check the power requirements of each device (usually found on the equipment nameplate or user manual) in watts.
  3. And add a 10% buffer as a safety precaution
  4. Consider any equipment with higher starting watts (such as a refrigerator or air conditioner). Add these starting watts only for the highest starting equipment, as not all equipment will start at the same time.

Fuel type

While mobile gensets typically run on diesel, some run on natural gas and propane. Before purchasing, consider what fuel you want your genset to use. Some models may offer two fuel types called dual fuel gensets, but most include a single fuel option. 

Petrol is widely available and usually cheaper than diesel. It is less fuel efficient, has a shorter shelf life and higher emissions than other fuel types.

Diesel is more fuel efficient than petrol, runs longer, is usually more durable and has a longer shelf life. However, diesel mobile gensets run noisier, usually cost more upfront, and in some areas diesel may be harder to find.

Propane burns cleaner, reduces engine wear, and can be stored indefinitely. Energy density is lower, which results in shorter run times for propane mobile gensets and the need to store propane tanks.

Hybrid (dual- or tri-fuel) has more flexibility in fuel use, and dual- or tri-fuel mobile gensets can switch fuels for longer run times and increased reliability in times of fuel shortages. The disadvantages are typically higher initial purchase costs and more complex maintenance.

Size and weight

Although all mobile gensets are designed to be towed by a vehicle, the size of the genset will determine the type of vehicle you will need. For example, many small to mid-sized gensets can be towed by an SUV or pickup truck, while a sizeable mobile genset, such as a 20′ or 30′ ISO container with enough horsepower for a car, hauling capacity and particular barrier.

Noise level

Another factor to consider is the amount of noise your mobile genset is allowed to make. Some commercial and residential areas have strict noise control regulations, and you need to make sure that you comply with them. The industry standard for genset noise levels is 70 dB(A) heard at 23 feet. Most mobile gensets meet this standard, but depending on the location or application of your job site, you may need a mobile genset with more noise attenuation (noise reduction). The more noise attenuation you need, the more your genset will cost – your supplier can help you determine the level of noise attenuation you need.

Runtime

Runtime is the amount of time a mobile genset can run before it needs to be refuelled. Generally, you need to select a mobile genset that meets 100% of your jobsite load requirements for the entire workday. Any more time than this is extra time. Anything less than this time and you are wasting valuable work time while crews stand around waiting for the mobile genset to refuel.

Customising mobile gensets to the required functionality

Since no two application scenarios are exactly the same, customisation is key. It is important to determine the features required for your application and customise a mobile genset to fit your needs perfectly.

• Automatic Voltage Regulators (AVRs)

The workplace requires variable loads. Equipment requires a surge of power when it starts up, and then the power demand gradually decreases as the equipment operates normally. an AVR helps ensure that the output voltage remains consistent, even when the load changes as you start up and shut down the equipment throughout the workday. an AVR not only protects the mobile genset and prevents the voltage from dropping, but it also prevents the equipment from being electrically damaged.

•  Ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protection

GFCI protection effectively prevents workers from being electrocuted.

•  Automatic idle control

This is a highly recommended feature no matter what your application is. Auto Idle Control allows the engine to run at a lower speed when not in use. Effectively reducing fuel consumption and noise levels when there is no traction and allowing the engine to stay warm before being subjected to heavy loads, this feature is particularly useful in the colder months.
