KVA is voltage multiplied by current. So if your genset can supply 450KVA at 15 Volts, by dividing 450 by 15 we get the maximum current available to be 30 amps. However you should never draw the maximum current as it would put a strain on the supply. It would be safe to draw up to 25 amps at 15volts

Gen set blows fuse

a fuse is there to protect the circuit and the genset
check why the de-icer is pulling so many amps as the problem may be in that unit
a 10 amp outlet has a maximum current capacity of 10 amps as that is the current allowable from the gen set and wire capacity
even if you had an outlet with 15 amp rating , it would still be blowing fuses as the 16 amps is above the allowable current draw
you would need a 20 amp outlet ( difficult to get unless it is in a house power board and are normally reserved for hot water systems , stoves and other high current usage units and are normally then not outlets but hard wired in to a circuit breaker

Interior electrical outlet plugin

Typically ' cigarette lighter ' plugs are fused with a 15 amp fuse, so in that case 15 amps is the capacity for that plug. If you have an owners manual check it for the fuse rating for the lighter plug, or check the fuse box . There may be a list of fuses and what they are for. Some folks install auxiliary plugs with higher amperage ratings, say a 20 amp circuit. This would entail using a 20 amp fuse, the correct size wire, and a plug that is rated for 20 amps.

No output from Orbit transformer Model # WT41-2600300AU, transformer rated output is 26volts, 300ma. Only transformer I have been able to find is Orbit # 57040-10C, 24vac, 750 ma. Is this supposed to be...

The 750 ma transformer is fine. The only concern you have is that it matches voltage. The higher amperage is what it is capable of delivering. It would be like plugging a radio into a circuit with a 15 amp breaker or a 20 amp breaker. My transformers are 1250 ma, 24 volts. The 24 volt transformer will probably give you the 26 volts of your old unit. It is fine to use.

Battery light stays on new battery and alt

If the battery/charging system light was tripped by the computer, it will take a obd2 scanner to turn it off.Keep in mind that the light indicates a problem with the charging system and not the battery in specific.
A volt meter place on the positive and neg battery terminals with engine running will give you the output reading for the alternator. The charging voltage should be between 13.6 to 14.2 volts. Keep this in mind, the lower the voltage, the higher the amperage going into the battery. So, if the charge rate is 15 Volts, There are o amps and the voltage without the amps Will fry the battery and the excess voltage can damage other accessories as we as lighting.Good Luck. If need arises I'm here. Ned

Will a Whirlpool 21.7 cu ft Side by Side Refrigerator {Energy Star} operate on a 3000 watt Pure SineWave Inverter ED2GVEXVD

your refrigerator has a rated amperage that you need to check, the formula for wattage is volts(120)x amps(15)=watts(1800), your inverter must be rated for continuous duty

What is max current from 12 volt lighter/power sockets on 2005 Chrysler town and country touring

Max current is 20A for the lighter/power sockets. This can be confirmed two ways -- the first is the power sockets typically have the number printed on the plastic outlet cover, the second is to look in the manual for the fuse ratings on this circuit.

Have generators full schematics, want to upgrade socket just 10A

Isn't too much info, and I appreciate your taking the time to list it.

It is with all due respect, that I feel no direct solution can be offered to your query.

The liability issue of someone posting how to change a manufacturers rated capacity, of an electrical generator's safety device/s, cannot/should not, be addressed by experts in this forum.

You are asking how to exceed stated safety ratings, for breakers on a generator. The engineers that designed the generator, also took into account the rated safety load of the breakers.

It is my belief, that should you change any part of this system, you are liable for any occurrence thereafter.
Good or bad.

Exceeding a 40 Amp load on a 220 volt line, and the safety device is too large, could be Very bad!

I hope I haven't offended you in any way, nor do I wish to incur your wrath. I truly wish I could help you in this endeavor, but I feel my hands are tied.

My tablet is not pluging in

Toshiba computers have a label on the bottom that displays the exact voltage and minimum amperage required to power the computer ("DC15V 3.0A", for example, which means 15 volts DC (direct current), at 3.0 amps. Each Toshiba AC adapter has a label indicating its output voltage and amperage capacity (for example, "DC15V 3.0A"). Important considerations for using AC adapters with portable computers:
The connectors must be compatible -- they must mate together correctly.
The voltage level must match exactly (a computer designed to run from 15 volts can be powered only by an adapter rated to produce 15 volts). If the AC adapter's voltage is higher than the computer's requirement, the computer and the battery may be damaged, If the AC adapter's voltage is lower, the computer may not operate correctly, or not operate at all.
The AC adapter must supply at least enough amperage (current) to meet the computer's amperage requirement. Otherwise, the computer may not run properly, the battery may not charge correctly, or may charge very slowly.
The quality of the power (ripple, noise and other factors) provided by the AC adapter must be very high. AC adapters from other manufacturers may supply sufficient amperage at the correct voltage level but the quality of the power may be poor, which can cause the computer to operate erratically, and could even cause damage to the computer. Whenever possible, use the correct Toshiba AC adapter for your computer.
The computer's power light may blink to indicate that there's a problem with the power from the AC adapter.
