Parallel Power Generation Made Easy | with the MQ Power Paralleling System
Parallel generators are preferable to a larger single generator for many applications.
Generators in parallel produce power equivalent to a larger generator.
Our MQ Power Paralleling System can be used to connect multiple generators together into a single power generation system and monitor the power demands of the application. When your site load changes, the system automatically adjusts by bringing additional generators online or allowing for backup protection if one unit drops out.

Let's walk through two different scenarios
Multiple generators connected in parallel utilize the MQ Power Paralleling System to meet changing power demands on your site.
The MQ Power Paralleling System monitors the power demands of the application. The system monitors for increasing and decreasing demand, then automatically starts and stops paralleled generators accordingly. This system is easy to use, yet complex enough to manage multiple paralleled generators.
In this example, there are four pumps at a pumping station. The number of pumps in operation vary at given times, based on the amount of water that needs to be displaced. Each generator is sized to provide enough power to two pumps.
In our second example, two MQ Power Generators are being used to power an outdoor concert venue. It's a big event so the organizers do not want to run the risk of losing power during the show so they have opted to run two generators in parallel.
Application: A live concert venue is powered by portable Generators
Situation: Each generator is capable of handling all of the power demands of the entire venue without assistance from the other.
Response: Both generators are online and provide simultaneous power to the application because they are in parallel.
