Smart power management system is designed to optimize the performance of a standby generator. The system can consist of up to 8 individual smart management modules (SMM). Unlike other load management systems that depend on another control device, the SMM modules are actually self aware and operate autonomously. Frequency is the true measure of generator engine performance and does not need to factor in increased ambient temperatures, elevation changes or generator fuel type. The modules monitor the frequency of the power being produced by Generac’s standby generators and if it falls below a certain threshold, the module will automatically follow a power management algorithm to ensure that the generator is not overloaded.
