Definitions for "Surge capacity"
The capacity of an inverter to deliver power at a higher rate than its rated power output for given short periods of time.
The ability of an inverter or generator to deliver high currents momentarily required when starting motors. Mosst inverters can exceed their rated power for limited periods of time (seconds). Surge requirements of specific loads should be determined or measured. Some transformers and ac motors require Mosting currents several times their operating level for several seconds.
refers to the maximum amount of AC power an inverter may deliver to a load (or loads) for a short period of time.
Ability to obtain additional resources when needed during an emergency.
