A new and more efficient alternator on the Briggs & Stratton 20kW Standby Generator delivers exceptional voltage control and more power for starting motors including 5-ton air conditioners. Tighter voltage control for less than 5% total harmonic distortion (THD) means cleaner power for sensitive electronics and heavy-duty motors. The Dual 200-Amp Symphony II Automatic Transfer Switches for split 400-Amp Service distributes power from the Briggs & Stratton 20kW Standby Generator to both circuit breaker panels for power to the entire home automatically. Symphony II management ensures the generator won’t overload and shutdown. Prioritized loads including air conditioners, electric dryers, and electric ranges run when power is available. The dryer might wait until you finish cooking dinner, for example.
