The Benefits of Our 28 kVA Generators
Although this has a smaller generator output capacity compared to our heavy-duty applications on our website, you will have a more portable power generator at hand to move around if needed. With it being able to furnish 28 kVA of power at 100% load, this diesel engine will furnish low noise emissions, perfect for crowded areas.
Often, generator systems are known for being noisy and environmentally unfriendly. However, with our diesel Cummins generator, we have assessed the noise emissions and found that due to a porous metal surrounding the diesel engine – the sound energy will be dissipated.
Along with the sound absorbing features, diesel power generation is known for being additionally sustainable compared to its petrol counterpart.
Not only will diesel engines on average last longer than a typical petrol engine but with fewer carbon emissions (gas released into the atmosphere – you will have an environmentally-friendly generator that suits your surroundings much better.
This silent generator can act as a single-phase or three-phase generator for your needs, depending on the AVR alternator you invest in – relative to your voltage output. Versatile for both options, it is simply down to you on how you employ this 28 kVA generator to your advantage.
Standby Power vs Prime Power: What is the Optimal Power Rating?
Depending on the unit of power that you need for your appliances will determine the capacity of power required for your functions. A 28 kVA generator has a standby power capacity of anywhere between 27.5 kVA / 22 kW and a prime power rating of anywhere between 25 kVA / 19.8 kW.
As you can tell, there is a slight difference in the power output of each power rating. Therefore, if you’re totalling up the amount of power required to sustain your appliances – it will need to fall between 230 and 415 volts for optimum performance.
400/230v generators are generally manufactured to power 400 volt devices. Yet, with 400 volts being at the higher end, this will be closer to your standby power range and 230 volts will be likely fitted to your prime power requirements (run 230v output only for prime power).
If you want to run a small amount of appliances, we would recommend you stay in the prime power rating – depending on the voltage total. Whereas, if you need your 28 kVA generator for backup power generation, you will be able to reach the generator output limit (100% load) as you won’t need it for a sustained period of time.
What to Expect From Your Fuel Consumption Rate?
Investing in a fuel tank is not necessary here at Pleavin Power as we already have it integrated into our Cummins generator. However, buying fuel will be necessary once you run out. Consequently, how much fuel consumption can you expect from your 28 kVA generator?
Well, at 100% load, you will be expending approximately 6 litres of fuel per hour – meaning at 50% load, you will only be disbursing 3 litres of fuel every hour. Especially with a diesel fuel tank, you will be spending a lot less money every month replenishing fuel due to its environmentally friendly nature.
Your running time would be considerably less if you were to invest in a petrol generator. Just like a car, your diesel engine/ fuel will last longer and be more durable due to the optimal lubricant it provides.

Here at Pleavin Power, we ensure that you’re best prepared for a high-performing experience with your chosen 28 kVA generator. Unlike other companies, we will provide you with what is needed to partner with your generator. Yet, what does your generator come with when you choose Pleavin Power?

All of these features and tools are excellent for powering sensitive electronic functions – thus, when you’re trying to accurately balance the loads, you won’t have to worry about a faulty product.
