## What size generator do I need to run a 15kw motor?

Rule of Thumb

Electric Motor Size Minimum Generator Req’d (KVA) by Starting Method
HP KW D.O.L to KVA Size (Note 1)
10 7.5 25
12.5 9.3 31.25

How do you calculate generator capacity?

1. Full load kW = Total amps x supply voltage / 1,000.
2. Reserve capacity = Full load kW x 0.25.
3. For 100 percent power, generator size = Full load kW + reserve capacity.
4. Retail application: 50 kW + 10 watts per square foot.
5. Other commercial application: 50 kW + 5 watts per square foot.
