First start gen with no connections. when it trips then already fault is in gen wires when its ok, try with dril, hairdryer or whatever. when ok try to connect to your home installation, make sure power of electricity company is complete off.

What is causing RCD to trip repeatedly?


RCD is a safety device and is meant to trip if it sees a ground fault or phase to phase fault and protecting you from a shock sounds like you have a heater problem or a fan,if unit runs for hours with no trip then heater, if trip a few minuets then fan ,the only way to find it is to mega ohm each part with in the unit.

Machine displaying general alarm the infuser slide was very tight freed up and reassembled now turning the machine on results in an arc at the motor brushes which blows the RCD breaker.


Hi Chris
Good Job freeing it all up etc. Your 90% there
Can you remove brushes & clean and stretch a millimetre more out of brush leads to stop arcing. Or perhaps the load is to great.
I did notice you said RCD.
RCD's usually only trip when an in-balance occurs between the hot phase wire & neutral wires.
Eg... what goes in via phase wire must come out on neutral wire. Even a small millivolt trickle to ground will trip an RCD. (20-30ma)
The Residual Current Device is for electric shock Safety.
It is not the main fuse or circuit breaker.
RCD's can be a real pain when there is a slight moisture leak.
For Example.
My fridge in my Winnebago would trip the RCD after it hadn't been used for awhile. The insulation around the 10A heating element was damp & tripping the RCD continually.
So how do I bypass the RCD to heat the element up and get rid of moisture. My method was to use a stand alone generator with no RCD to power the RV.
Worked great. Once the element surroundings were dry it ran fine on the home 240vAC.
So... If you really are tripping the RCD then the problem is AC "LEAKING" to Earth. Usually Moisture.....Try a hair dryer
If it is really blowing a Fuse or Circuit Breaker then the problem is too much current being drawn in circuit.
Hope this Helps

Advice on RCD tripping


yes
an accredited electrician can test the circuits for insulation failure , vermin shorting across active / neutral/ earth points and the rcd itself
it is not a diy job

How do i do when some genset can't run togheter when we start the plant


im not sure are you asking about Phasing ? on a three phase gen set , yes extreme care needs be taken if you need to start one genset before shutting one off , in this case a Phase/sync meter will need to be used to keep from surging all the loads connected to genset , also all three phases of each genset needs to be "In sync" to be able to use a transfer from one genset to another , in sync refers to peek waveform on each genset, needs to be in perfect time or an "ARC" will occur , that could be detrimental to the connected loads if there sensative to this type

How to convert 220v 3 wire supply to 380v using a triple pole fuse


You have 3-phase 230-240V, and you want 3-phase 380V
Requires 3 transformers with 230-240V primary coil and 380 secondary coil.
You cannot change voltage with a fuse.
The purpose of a fuse is to measure heat on the wire,,, and trip when heat exceeds fuse rating.

There is no way to adjust voltage on just one phase. I would check voltage sensing leads and check to see if there is a way to calibrate. Otherwise it sounds like a logic problem.

You have 220Volts (same as 240V), then that circuit does not need a neutral.
All household single phase voltage requires two wires to complete the circuit.
With 120V, you have 1 hot wire and 1 neutral wire.
With 240, you have 2 hot wires, and these hot wires are called 'out of phase' since each comes from separate side of breaker box.
Notice that your 220V 10-2 wire goes back to a double breaker. This double breaker snaps over two different busbars. The breaker pulls 2 out of phase 120Volt lines, and when testing voltage across those two out of phase 120V wires, you get 240V potential.
The ground wire is redundant safety in both 120 or 240 Volt circuits, and is not necessary for either 120 or 240 to operate.

Case 1: 220 V, 50Hz applied to s 3000 measuring the output as follows: 1- phase to ground 220 2- Phase to neutral 219 3- ground to neutral 1 volt Case 2 disconnct the input 220 V we have 1- phase...


Did you measure with a true RMS meter?
If yes,the results are normal,but your ground connection is not very good.
The case has 110v potential (exactly half of the input&output 220v) because of the input and output capacitor filters (a capacitor is conectet from phase to casis and an other from neutral to chasis,thus resulting a 1/2 voltage divider). Because of this,the earthing is necessary.

How to adjust voltage output from generator ?


As long as your appliances are working properly I wouldn't worry. A 10V drop from the norm is not that crazy and certainly not abnormal. If it drops down to 205 or 200 then I would worry. I'm not familiar with the internal components of a home generator but I would imagine they are not as precise as the machines the power companies use. And when you look at it from a phase point of view its even less of an issue. There are 110-120V per single phase and 220-240V double phase. So on each phase your only dropping 5V out of that range. And as far as the needle jumping, again not very precise, and it will probably move even more while its generating. If the voltage does happen to drop more check for a loose neutral wire, that will often cause crazy voltages, but so far I see nothing to worry about.
