As time goes by and technology advances at an ever-increasing rate, generators with high voltage outputs are becoming more and more commonplace. High voltage generators are often chosen for a number of different reasons that range from its technical aspects to the specific characteristics of every single installation in which it is used.
Before we take a closer look at these generators, let’s look at the differences between low and high voltage. When we talk about systems with alternating currents, voltage is measured in VAC (Volts AC), which indicates how hard the electricity pushes through a circuit.
Basically speaking, low-voltage systems are those that do not exceed 1,000 VAC, whereas high voltage systems can range from 1,000 VAC to a limitless power/output.
In some countries, generator sets which fall within the 1,000 and 15, 000VAC range are known as medium-voltage sets. However, this is not a standardized term and is not commonly used around the world.
