When you start researching generators you quickly start hearing about the importance of clean power. A frequent question is whether or not Winco generators offer clean power. The simple answer to that question is yes. We also want to go into some additional detail so you can understand what makes power “clean.”
To be clean power a generator has to maintain its frequency, voltage and Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) within acceptable levels. At Winco our new products meet or exceed the thresholds listed below.
Voltage Regulation: +/- 5%
Total Harmonic Distortion: < 6%
Frequency Regulation: +/- 2hz
Many of the models we offer use electronic controls to improve voltage and frequency regulation well below these minimum thresholds.
We have created some additional articles that cover the different technologies we use to produce clean power.
– What Controls Voltage Regulation?
– What is Total Harmonic Distortion?
– What is Frequency Regulation?
Some applications have special power requirements and cannot tolerate variations in frequency or voltage that are more stringent. Some examples of these include technologies like large UPS applications and some specialty electronics. Most common applications are going to be within acceptable operating ranges.
