What does ISO 8528 define as a low power generating set?

ISO 8528 defines a low power generating set as one with a power of less than about 10kW, but size is not the primary consideration.

Low-power generating sets for the purpose of this standard are determined by the following special features:
  • — the users normally are laymen
  • — the complete generating set is usually transportable, or mobile;
  • — the electrical output is connected by plugs and sockets
  • — the generating set is ready for use without any additional installation work by the user.
