What is a power generator?

A power generator is an appliance that generates electricity by converting an energy source like diesel or petrol into power for use. Generators are used as a means to generate electricity when grid access is difficult to access and to prevent discontinuity of electricity supply.  Power generation is often an essential part of earthmoving, construction or mining projects, particularly if there is limited access to mains. As a result, generators are prominent across early-stage construction sites where electricity infrastructure hasn’t been installed yet or on sites where electricity supply is unreliable. Generators are also commonly used in a range of buildings like hospitals and shopping centres where they act as a backup electricity source in case of blackouts.   Our search directory offers a huge volume of power generators for hire by qualified suppliers throughout Australia. We can connect you with the best generator hire suppliers in all major cities including Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Canberra, Hobart, and Darwin, along with hundreds of regional centres throughout Australia. These suppliers offer a diverse range of power generators to suit your project and operations needs. Which power generator do you need?  Generators come in an assortment of electrical and physical configurations for use in a variety of applications, where they vary in usage (standby or continuous/prime), kVA and system size. It’s critical to have an estimate of the amount of power required, what tools, machines, or systems need the power. Knowing your power needs will help you ensure you get the best power generator hire option with enough output electricity to maintain power on your site. If it has too little output, then your site needs will not be met and this may be a costly process that delays productivity.  How does a generator work? A generator utilises energy sources like gas, diesel, or petrol to generate a mechanical force that is then converted into an electric current. On the technical side of things, generators operate on the principle of electromagnetic induction. The principle is that generators move a magnet close to a wire, creating a steady flow of electrons. A tight copper coil is usually wrapped around the iron core in the generator, which rotates extremely quickly inside a powerful magnet.
