Generating energy-efficient power for flexible use
Whether it’s cooking, surfing the internet, doing laundry, or simply lighting our homes, many everyday activities consume energy. In case of a power outage, portable generators provide a back-up electricity source, allowing people to complete the most essential of these daily tasks. Further, because they are easy to transport, portable generators can flexibly stand in if there’s no socket nearby for your power tools or should you want to enjoy power-dependent recreational activities away from home.

Demand for high power, low emissions
That said, to generate energy, portable generators consume energy, typically gas or diesel. As we try to curb excessive energy consumption and meet stringent emissions regulations, portable generator designers are challenged to develop highly efficient and environmentally-friendly systems. Simultaneously, designers must consider consumers’ priorities when selecting a portable generator, such as:
- High power quality
- Low noise
- Compliance with emissions regulations
- Cost effectiveness
- Smooth, effective supply of electrical signals
- Small size
