The generator plants are connected in parallel, which enables output to be adjusted more easily and the correct number of engines is automatically selected to meet changing electricity demands within the facility. Under normal conditions, 2-3 engines are needed approximately 10 hours each day. Installations with parallel-connected generator plants provide much better operating economy compared with a traditional installation, in which all of the generators are in constant use. This latter configuration often results in costly operations.
