It is normal to use only half of the capacity of a battery and this is called 50% depth of discharge (DOD) so the watts of a battery is volt X amp hours eg a 12 volt bat @ 200 AH would be 2400 watts but you can only use half of that other wise the battery will be stuffed, so all you have is 1200 watts, if you have a 400 AH battery you would have 2400 watts, you also have to know the capacity of the battery and this is call the C rating of the battery once you have that you can work out how many hours it will run for.

On an of grid system I would not use any less than 6oo to 700 AH @ C100

It is normal to size the batters to energy demand in KWHrs per day of (AC load )

Hope this help.

Is it a 3000 watt generator? Is it a generator running a 3000 watt appliance? Be more specific. What generator? What is it running?

First, make sure you fuel is fresh. Clean the carburetor thoroughly, that means take it off the generator, take it apart and clean all the little orifices, channels and jets of all the gunk a carb gets in it from sitting, bad gas and just because it is there. Reassemble and test it on the generator with fresh fuel.

Inverter Generator Benefits

performance chips of BMW.

The EU3000 series generators are inverter generators. The generator features an alternator, which produced high-voltage, multi-phase AC power. This power is converted to DC power and then converted back to AC. This process is controlled by a microprocessor and is necessary to provide stable, consistent power capable of running equipment sensitive to power surges. This type of generator provides higher fuel efficiency and lower operational noise ratings in a lighter model than home and work generators produced by Honda.

The Honda EU3000i Handi is a 3,000-watt inverter generator that features wheels, folding handle and a recessed convenience light. The engine is a Honda GX160, which features a 163-cc displacement. The AC output is 120 volts, with an average rating of 2,600 watts and a maximum production of 3,000 watts. There are three receptacles to include a 20A, 125-volt duplex and a 30A, 125-volt locking plug. The DC output is 12 volts and 100 watts. The EU3000i can hold 1.56 gallons of unleaded fuel, which will provide consumers with 3.6 hours of run time at 25 percent load for 7.7 hours.

If the unit does not have the horsepower rating, but has the AMP rating, try this formula found in Answers.com

"Amps are a factor in calculating power, and so can be used to determine horsepower, but only when other factors are present.

Given other factors, you can find the horsepower. The easiest way is to determine watts by multiplying amps X volts. Next multiply watts by .00134 and you have horsepower.

If: amps (A)= 20 and volts (V)=120 then

A X V =2400 watts (W)

2400 watts X .00134 = 3.216 horsepower"

Hope this helps you???

Some manufacturers tend to fudge the numbers and throw around the 'peak' output power as continuous and it isn't.
Peak (or surge) is the power a generator will handle as starting current (for example) for a motor and can be 120-140% of the actual continuous power.

Check you owner's manual, find the detailed specs which will normally contain the maximum continuous current rating. If it is listed separately for 120 and 220 (240) volts look for separate current ratings for each output.

By multiplying the current(s) times the output voltages you can find the total*resistive* output into a purely resistive load such as an electric heater.

For example: 120VAC X 20 A=2400 watts. If other outputs are available such as 220VAC, multiply its current rating: 10A. or 2200 watts Adding those two results 2400 2200=4600 watts will give you the rated power of a unit.

You can also recognize stupid power claims if the engine's horsepower is given. One (US) HP = ~746 watts. Since no generator is 100% efficient, its a fair rule of thumb to guesstimate the available electrical power at ~70% of the engine's rating (although, this is often also wildly optimistic). 10 HP X .7= ~746 X 7 or a bit over 5,000 watts.

The load may be too much for the generator. Remember that some loads, especially those with motors driving a machine (like air compressors) require much higher startup power than what is listed on the nameplate. General rule of thumb is to allow 2-3 times nameplate rating for generator rating. For example. If your air conditioner is rated as 800 watts, then you would want a genreator AT LEAST 2400 watts to start and run the compressor.

Assuming you are testing alternating current and not direct current that sounds quite normal. Plug with confidence. You are using equipment designed for 110v-120v and you're getting 113.8v where it matters most. Higher voltage to ground is nothing unusual, that's just how this inverter is designed.
