The first thing I would look for would be internal fuses blown. This sounds like a 460 volt 12,000 watt industrial generator and you probably should call the installing contractor for service. My 15,000 watt generator is over 30 years old and has less than 700 hours on it and those are mostly test-run hours.

I have a mecc alte Mr 1 generator I'm producing 240 volts but I can't find a neutral so I can use 120 volts.where does the neutral come from


as 240 volts is single phase , it will not be possible to reduce the power by cutting across a neutral wire ( 240 volt power out and 240 volt neutral return That is ac power ) to do what you want to do you will need a 3 phase generator so that you can jump across a phase to get lower power

Just bought a s8000 3phase, straight petrol pramac generator, can I run my large 3 phase mixer and a 240v hand whisk at the same time?


Look at the name plate ratings on your devices, they should give you the KVA load of the device. Add all of these up. If the load exceeds the output of the generator, then it wont work

Why my Pramac P9000 Generator does not start


Try a shot of starting fluid. If it does not start with that it may have a fuel supply problem.

Honda eu3000is generator surges


Inverter Generator Benefits
  • 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.

EU3000i Handi Specifications
  • 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.

A new Generac Centurion 36kW unit is producing 350 volts across phase A & B and 175 volts from each phase to nuetral/ground. I need 120/240 volts.


Hello, seeing how this is a new generator, I would have the company either replace the unit or have a certified tech (factory) set the voltage. My first check would be that the voltage regulator is not functioning, or is set incorrectly. I have worked on generac for 30 years. My suggestions are because of warranty issues. You might void your warranty if you try to set the voltage. Just curious, when you discovered this, was there a load connected? Also, I would make sure by checking line voltage with my multimeter to verify it is functioning properly. Sometimes a Digital Meter can give false readings. Do not put a load on the generator, I would connect a 100w light bulb to a phase - neutral connection as not to damage household equipment. Please feel free to contact again if there are more questions.

I have a brand new IR compressor model 2475N7.5 with a 7.5 hp 460v 3 ph motor. is it possible to convert it to a single phase power supply? or should i just exchange it? ... I ordered it thru Northern Tool...


When you google home made 3 phase converters, you will find many ways to make use of 220v single phase instead, however you are limited as to the hp that the motor will produce. If you spin the motor first then apply 220v, the motor will continue to turn at much reduced hp. You need full power to turn a type 30 pump depending on pulley combination/ setup. Best to return the unit and get one that will run on 220v single phase. It will most likely consume more power to do the same work however it would cost a great deal to install 3 phase. Most likely not even available at all. Many years ago, I worked at Sears and happened to see an electrician coming down from roof access of building. He told me that sears had a 3 phase generator being turned by a 220v single phase motor to run an air conditioning unit. He said that it worked quite well. Does not sound cost effective.

I'm dumb. Can I hook an inverater to my generator and produce more enegry than my generator produces???


Please understand that the generator produces power from fuel with an engine wheras the invertor is one which genrerates power from a stored battery using the principle of frequency switching a DC source to induct and produce AC.
Now you can have an uninterupted power supply setting with the invertor backed up by the generator so that when the battery voltage goes down you can start and charge the invertor and also supply the extra energy .
the ratings of both must also be considered.
