Good day,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have been working on load testing for generator sizing of various premises and I used a power and energy logger to do the load testing.

The results came out good, now that I got max apparent power in kVA and the max true power in kW.

My question is how should I calculate the generator sizing and what parameters should I consider in the calculation as I have never done this before, please let me know your thoughts on it.

Also what is the difference between the prime rating and standby rating for sizing the generator.
