    A long time as long as I have a fan on the generator but without it just takes a few minutes to check the voltage at times it's worth supposed to be at 240 114 then other times 110 and then it comes right back to 240 112

I would say the generator itself is defective or the voltage regulator is.

Why do my clocks run fast when my Briggs & Stratton 15kw generator is running?


Electric clocks use synchronized motors that run on 60 Hz AC. The power company provides AC power with a precisely regulated frequency of 60 Hz. That means that the voltage jumps back and forth (positive to negative) 60 times per second. Your generator would do the same thing if it could run at precisely 3600 rpm (that's rev's per minute) - but it can't, because the engine is not that precisely controlled. In your case it tends to run (on average) a little fast. I hope you found this helpful. By the way, in Europe 50 Hz is the norm. If you run a clock designed for 50 Hz on 60 Hz power, it will run 20% too fast! Al K

What areall main causes of generator main stator burnt in sr4 &leroy somer alternators.


It can be many many factors, aside from the obvious (overloading) check the type of laods and the power factor of those loads, the gen alternator is rated at 0.8PF if your laod is a UPS without a switchable input filter, there is a good chance the unit is going into over excitation due to a leading PF. I have seen that before

I purchased a Propane Generator from Central Maine Diesel a few years ago.

20 HP Honda engine, Italian generator head.
Paid about $2300 plus shipping via Paradise Freight which was a few hundred.
I see the price is just a bit higher now... But the one I want most is Yuchai which i saw from a website.

Recently it blew a capacitor. Central Maine sent me 2 for the price of one even though it is out of warranty. $39 total for two.

I looked at generators on island but a similar Honda at Quality electric was close to $6000 and it wasn't even a 13750kw. More like 8 or 9000kw if I remember right.....

They have many generators at great prices but this is the one I settled for.

However, it is said that the Cummins generator is more popular than others.
