Should Rental Firms Offer Parallel Generator Systems?

Parallel generator systems, also called parallel configurations, are power generation solutions where more than one generator is connected via a central controller module that manages the generators to optimize power delivery and fuel economy. The controller monitors load requirements and dynamically adjusts the load on each generator to accomplish the most efficient load sharing. It can shut down and then restart one or more of the generators to most efficiently meet fluctuating load demands.
