The above ratings represent the engine performance capabilities to conditions specified in ISO 8528/1, ISO 3046/1:1986, BS 5514/1.

Derating may be required for conditions outside these; consult Perkins Engines Company Limited. Generator powers are typical and are based on an average alternator efficiency and a power factor (cos. θ) of 0.8.

Fuel specification: BS 2869: Part 2 1998 Class A2 or ASTM D975 D2. Lubricating oil: 15W40 to API CI4.

Rating Definitions

Baseload Power: Power available for continuous full load operation. Overload of 10% permitted for 1 hour in every 12 hours operation.

Prime Power: Power available at variable load with a load factor not exceeding 80% of the prime power rating. Overload of 10% is permitted for 1 hour in every 12 hours’ operation.

Standby Power: Power available in the event of a main power network failure up to a maximum of 500 hours per year of which up to 300 hours may be run continuously. Load factor may be up to 100% of standby power. No overload is permitted.
