Question about Garden

1 Answer

Have a 8 kva workmate portable generator and have started having trouble running inverter welder. have had it checked and adjusted (hertz was out a bit) When using welder the genset doesn't seem to come under load. Would this indicate an electric/electronic problem ie the generator is not stepping up output when required?

How do I replace broken starter rope

Generac 40kw single phase generator starter engages after 30sec of running


For the over voltage there is an adjustment on the control board.
Should be tested with a load something plugged in.
The hertz might just come on when under load and adjusted too.
If you need more give a model number and whether it is 13kw or 40kw.

Generator has voltage drop, why?


Most of the small portable generators will depend on the engine speed to regulate the voltage. If the motor is at the correct speed you are getting 120 volts 60 hertz, if not it will read lower like 115 volts 55 hertz or so. This can be fixed by adjusting the governor, or idle speed needle.

I have a Yanmar 4.5 KVA Generator running into a Trace 2.5 KVA inverter/charger, the inverter requires 205-220volts to operate,once the inverter connects the voltage drops on the genny over a ten second+-...


try adjusting the gen voltage at no load to run at 240 volts
when the load comes on it will drop back to 220-235 volts
check the load output from the inverter as 2.5 kv is nearly 80% of the genset duty cycle
4.5 KV is start up KV and the duty KV is around 3..8 kv not the plated 4.5 kv
to get constant 4.5 kv you will need a 5.5-6 kv unit
if the current draw from the inverter is excessive , the engine may not have enough in reserve to over come the load and will not pick up the rpms
take the gen set and the inverter to a shop that has a calibrated load bank to test accurate power output to determine if the engine needs an overhaul

How many watts would you get from a generator rated at 11hp and 5.8 kva. thanks


kva = kilo-volt-amps

watts = volts x amps = va

Therefore, 5.8kva = 5800 watts

My trace inverter SW2512 will only allow pass through power.


First problem is caused by the new generator producing too high a frequency... 65 Hertz is above the inverter limit. Adjust the governor down to 60 or 61 Hertz.
Breaker tripping may be due to excessive current draw from the Honda. Check the max AC input menu on the inverter. It might have been set lower to avoid overloading the original generator but if DC power was turned off at any time while you were changing generators, the inverter would have returned to it's default settings which may exceed the Honda's capacity.
