Typical applications include emergency power backup applications for the medical industry, remote sites, or any industrial or commercial application requiring an independent or remote power source. Motor generator sets are available in most standard power delivery configurations. Power plant installations include gas turbines, diesel and gas reciprocating engines. Motor generator sets may produce alternating current power, or direct current.

Motor generator set can be customized with a wide range of options. These options include a fuel tank, a engine speed regulator and a generator voltage regulator, simple monitoring electrical devices to more advanced digital controls, wireless communication, automatic starting capabilities, and more.

Selecting motor generator set for electrical power generation does require a through understanding of power requirements, installation requirements, regulations, and cost attributes. For AC electrical generator sets, specifications will include AC power rating, and for DC specifications will include DC power, expressed in watts (W). Engine-generators are available in a wide range of power ratings. These include small portable units which can supply several hundred watts of power, up to million watt stationary or trailer-mounted units.
