The Pleasant Grove, Utah climate and geography: the city itself rests at an elevation of 4623 feet, and sports a land area of roughly 8.7 square miles. During July, Pleasant Grove's hottest month, daytime temperatures average 89.80 degrees. Altitude or elevation and outside temperatures matter when it comes to generator operation and selecting the right machine for an application. Why? Continue reading....
Any altitude above sea level robs a generator of output. One or two hundred feet doesn't tend to matter very much. On the other hand, a high elevation like ours can have a dramatic effect on generator capacity and the size load that can be run. Output losses, however, are predictable, and - good news - easy to calculate. For every 1000 feet you gain in elevation (above sea level), generator output (always manufacturer-rated for sea-level or zero altitude operation) declines by 3.5%; declines will affect running and surge watts equally. Here is a formula that can help calculate a generator's prospective power reduction at any elevation (using our elevation here in Pleasant Grove, Utah as an example): altitude of location (4623 feet in Pleasant Grove's case) multiplied by your expected power loss (3.5%) divided by 1000 feet (4623 x (3.5/1000) = 16.18%). Reducing a generator's maximum running and surge watts by 16% will give you an accurate enough assessment of operating results at this elevation. Output losses will also occur when temperatures exceed 85 degrees Fahrenheit. Figure on a power slippage of approximately 1% for every 5 degrees outside temperatures rise above 85 degrees. Temperatures of 87 or 88 degrees don't hinder generator service of most applications. However, when outside temperatures reach or exceed 100 degrees, generators operating at or near full load can begin to sputter, especially when running at high altitude.
High elevations and summer heat don't always require purchase of a larger unit. This decision often depends on how much of a generator's capacity a load requires, and how critical load operation is. Any load that will max out rated running or surge watts (made at sea level remember) will necessitate a more powerful generator for high-altitude operation. If you absolutely can't afford to have the load fail (if it's considered a critical load), then the choice is clear: a larger generator will be mandatory.
