Can you provide more detail on this? Such as under what conditions it overloads, and how much power you're drawing off of it? Keep in mind that generators have two ratings: Sustained Load and Peak Load. Mine, for example, can handle a sustained load of 1,750 watts, and can handle short-term peak loads of 2,000 watts. Note also that if you're running a microwave, they take a lot. So does anything with a motor in it (refrigerator, etc) on initial start up. Once you've added up all your loads, adjust to where you're within your generator's sustained load and you should be fine.
It depends on the appliance wattage and type, IE inductive loads like motors, HVAC compressors etc are harder on it. You didn't mention the 120V btu's but if the unit is running correctly and has no or light other loads on it, it should start it. be aware that it takes about 6 times the current to start the HVAC that it does to run it, so how much other loads are on the generator (base load) is critical
What type of load (electrical) was hooked up to this generation?? If the surge
voltage and current was exceeded above the generator maximum for any length of
time. There problems, it could be the regulator, insulation burnt off the
I am taking a guess here. Now, 7100 Watts is it typical surge wattage. This
mean that the generator will deliver 7100 Watt (voltage times current) this is
know as the power factor. The actual operating load would be 6800 Watts and I
would even operator the generator at its peak wattage. Something in the
neighborhood of 10--15% less the peak wattage. Therefore a good positive
theatrical Wattage would be 5800 to 6350 operating wattage. Then this generator
would run all day.
Just remember Ohm's Law. Current plays a big factor in loading of a generator
while the operation voltage is at 120 AC Volts. Example: electric motor; Now
electric motor when starting will pull three time its operation current.
Operating current for a 1/2 HP AC motor is 6 amperes but start this electric
motor will require 18 amperes. This is one reason why they starting capacitors
on smaller electric motors. Larger three phase electric motor can literal stop a
generator cold...in its tracks. It put such a large demand on the generator it
stops the engine powering the generator. I have seen crankshaft break because
the generator could handle the heavy current load.
Remember, any time you are running a small gas powered generator. All ways
figure what the load and surge current load will be before hooking up any
generator. Normally this is figured in VA (volt/amps). Wish you lock.
I had a problem like this one, check the voltage from the generator , if the output from the generator is to high (over 240 Volts european standard voltage), the voltage protection (VDR resistors ) will brake the fuse to protect your UPS.
and also check the frequency of the generator, it has to be very stabile around 50HZ (european standard frequency)
