What is kVA?

kVA (kilovolt-amps) is a measure of apparent power: it describes the total amount of power being used by a system. Fundamentally, 1 kVA is equal to 1,000 volt amps. Whereas volts is a measurement of electrical pressure and amps is a measure of electrical current, apparent power is equal to the product of the volts and amps.

How does a silent generator enclosure work?

Most soundproof containers or silent generators use composite materials in their generator enclosures. These are typically layers of hard material intended to reflect the sound energy back inside the enclosure, as well as layers of soft, porous and resilient materials which actually absorb that sound energy, converting it into heat.
