The letters are all different and the letter P appears 4 times. It is therefore an important letter. A good example of this is the letter P.

To know the difference you must read the relevant Standards.

PRP Prime power of generator

ISO-8528-1 states that a PRP rated generator set must provide power “for an unlimited numbers of hours per year under the agreed operating conditions with the maintenance intervals and procedures being carried out as prescribed by the manufacturers”.

ESP Emergency Standby power

ISO-8528-1 states that a ESP rated generator set must provide power “for the duration of the outage” and “with the maintenance intervals and procedures being carried out as prescribed by the manufacturers”. The ISO standard gives no limit to run time in the event of a utility power outage.

COP Continuous Power

ISO-8528-1 states that a COP rated generator set must provide power “for an unlimited numbers of hours per year under the agreed operating conditions with the maintenance intervals and procedures being carried out as prescribed by the manufacturers”.
