The term “Stand By” refers to electrical equipment that is on, but in a hibernation or resting stage. “Stand by” generators are usually the most common, since their main purpose is to provide emergency power for a limited period of time, which often coincides with outages or failures of the conventional electrical network.
The traditional classification of this type of groups must be dimensioned with a load factor of 100% and about 200 hours of operation per year. It is an equipment designed to be connected to the electrical network and remain on, but not working, waiting for a possible failure of that network. It is a reliable secondary power source.
Using this type of group will provide you with the assurance that, in the event of a power failure, the operation of all your basic equipment is guaranteed.
