Our Soil Compaction Handbook guides the user through the reasons for compacting soil, the types of compaction effort used, and covers Multiquip's compcation equipment line of rammers, plate compactors, and rollers.
Our generator handbook provides a basic education in electrical theory and generator operation, including formula for calculating power output and how to use that information to size a generator for your needs. Appendix tables provide starting requirements for electric motors, common extension cord gauge sizes, and typical power requirements for common construction applications
Our Dewatering Pump Selection Handbook teaches the user to understanding common Dewatering Pump designs, Pumping Theory, and the principles behind pumping equipment selection
Our Concrete Vibrator handbook explains the basics of concrete, the purpose of vibrating curing concrete, and the different types of vibrator machines available.
The MQ Product Training Handbook provides overviews of selected product lines and is intended as a learning supplement for Multiquip dealer training.
This short paper was written as quick reference to calculating available short-circuit current within a temporary electrical system when the primary power source is a generator. The paper also explains the behavioral characteristics of a generator when a short-circuit occurs and explain the different reactance values assigned to the generators for the purpose of calculating short-circuit current based on time.
This short paper will address motor basics, starting current, the impact high transient current has on a generator and the important role transient reactance plays in estimating the generator size in the absence of generator performance data.
"Grounding & Bonding of an effective ground fault current path is the backbone of electrical safety and shock prevention in temporary power generation and electrical distribution system installations”
