A NEW ERA IN POWER GENERATION FLEXIBILITY
Reduce costs, improve efficiency, provide redundancy – the advantages are many with the Generac Modular Power System. Historically, combining multiple gensets was a complicated business requiring expensive paralleling switchgear. The Modular Power System (MPS) combines smaller diesel gensets in a side-by-side, parallel arrangement, using integrated automatic transfer switches and switchgear, scaling up output at a significantly lower cost than using traditional non-integrated switchgear. Individual combined units can vary in output rating, which allows the system design to more closely match load requirements than single unit applications.
The cost savings compared even with utilizing a single large genset – including the integrated paralleling switch technology – is typically 20% – 30%, and in some cases can even be greater. Furthermore, because the modular generators can be operated individually or together, the MPS has flexibility and adaptability not found in single unit applications.
- LOWER COST/ SHORTER AMORTIZATION – MPS systems typically have lower acquisition cost and therefor amortize quicker than large, single-engine gensets.
- MODUCLAR FLEXIBILITY – Combine generators of the same or different kilowatt output to precisely match load requirements ranging from 800 to 6000kW
- AVAILABILITY – Because you’re combining smaller gensets, you don’t have to deal with the long lead times of large units that are typically backlogged
- REDUNDANCY – An MPS systems gives you scalable power availability and redundancy since units back each other up (which also provides greater coverage during maintenance down times)
- SIZE AND SPACE – MPS modules are lighter and the load is more distributed which allows for easier rooftop installation. They also work well in space-constrained applications.
- BUILT IN PARALLELING CAPABILITY – the transfer switches and switchgear are built into the units and built into the cost.
- REDUCED MAINTENANCE SERVICE AND PARTS COST – MPS systems are serviceable by diesel technicians where large single units often require more specialized service and costly parts.
- SINGLE SOURCE AVAILABILITY – All components are available from ESSE.
- WARRANTY – A Generac full-coverage warranty covers the entire package.

In a Modular Power System (MPS), each genset backs up the others in the system, so critical loads get redundant protection. This built-in redundancy also allows individual units to be taken off-line for routine maintenance while retaining coverage for critical circuits.
With MPS or the Gemini® Twin Pack, Generac customers can purchase the system they need today, and can add units quickly and easily as they are needed. There’s no need to replace the system if future power requirements exceed projections and no need to over-spend on a larger system that might never be fully utilized.
Generac’s MPS system is based upon an assortment of proven and reliable gensets that are paralleled to match power requirement up to 9000 kilowatts. MPS gensets are small enough to fit into spaces that can’t accommodate large units, and they are light enough for rooftop applications. Since MPS modules don’t have to be physically located together, you can better utilize available space. In addition, the space required for switchgear and large external panel boards is eliminated by Generac’s MPS.
MPS generators use high volume, high reliability over-the-road truck or industrial engines that can be easily serviced by qualified diesel technicians. Maintenance items and replacement parts are relatively inexpensive and readily available.
Available, Fast Delivery
MPS generators use readily available high volume engines. Larger engines used in generators that produce more than 600 kW are often built as needed and in far fewer numbers. This makes them more costly to manufacture and can extend delivery time by weeks or months. Because MPS systems are designed, manufactured and warranted by Generac, customers can typically take delivery months faster than with competitive systems.
Closed Recovery Cooling System
This closed, pressurized system virtually eliminates the introduction of air into the cooling system. Rust and fluid acidity are minimized, resulting in longer engine life.
Constant speed control provides faster response to block loads and a more consistent output frequency. All generators utilizing PowerManager® G-Series control systems feature an isochronous governor.
Standard vibration isolators virtually eliminate transmission of vibration from the unit to the mounting surface.
Automatic Alarms & Shutdowns
Generator functions are constantly monitored through a protective system that features solid state circuitry for reliability and long life. NFPA 110 required warnings and alarms provide alerts for a variety of safety and operational concerns. The system automatically shuts down in response to certain critical conditions such as high engine temperature, low coolant level, etc. All generators utilizing PowerManager® control systems meet NFPA 110 requirements for warnings, alarms and alerts.
Advanced Wire Harness Design with Waterproof Connectors
Our wire harness design assures reliable, repeatable interconnection between circuit components. Special sealed connectors protect against moisture, dust and environmental damage.
Generac Manufactured Alternators
Our revolving field alternators are fully-insulated and self-ventilating. They feature higher temperature Class H insulation, but are designed to operate at lower, Class F temperature levels for longer life. Oversized alternators are available on many models for additional motor starting capacity.
Solid-State Sensing and Starting Control
Provides the ultimate in engine protection. The magnetic pickup senses overspeed, automatically shuts down the engine, disconnects the starter motor and prevents re-engagement. The system also provides cyclic cranking for improved starting reliability and cranking termination for starter motor protection.
Where can I purchase a generator?
Generators can be purchased through any Generac dealer. See our Dealer Locator to find a dealer near you or call 1-888-GENERAC.
Solid-State, Frequency Compensated Voltage Regulation (V/F)
Provides fast, optimized response to changing load conditions. Maximum motor starting capability is assured by electronically torque-matching the surge loads to the engine.
Permanent Magnet Excitation (PME)
Provides sustained short circuit current for breaker coordination. Increases motor starting capabilities and enhances performance when load-induced harmonics are present. Standard on 150 kW (except MQT models) and larger. Optional on smaller gensets.
Our textured, powder coat paint process provides consistent coverage and better bonding to seams and exposed edges providing durability and a long-lasting, tough finish.
All Generac standby generators are UL 2200 listed and our transfer switches are UL 1008 listed. UL listing verifies the kilowatt ratings of our generators and is your assurance that Generac standby systems meet the highest safety standards.
