1. Check the main output circuit of generator to prevent the short circuit at the output end from causing the excitation can not be established;
2. Click the excitation Magnetizing button with the excitation Magnetizing button.
3. Without excitation buttons, magnetized with battery

Generator no longer puts out 220 so longer runs my whole house air conditioner?

it could be just that it needs the rpm adjusted to maintain the 220-240 volts under load
if you have a large air conditioner , then it will be at the load limit for the average 7.5 kva gen set which has a max constant output of 6 kva
you can get the wattage requirement of the ac from the specs plate on the outside unit

Can voltage on Powermate be adjusted?

the adjustment is by the rpm setting on the governor spring
thee is a nut that you adjust the spring tension with and lower the rpms and watch the voltage gauge until you get the desired voltage
if the load is going to be constant but is well within the rated capacity( example 2kva of a 6.5 kva set) of the gen set then the variation when the load comes on will be less than 5 volts
however if the power required is close to the max capacity of the gen set ( example 4.5kva of a rated 5 kva set) , then turn the unit on and adjust the rpms up to the required voltage required
remember that an advertised kva is not the rated kva
rated kva is what the gen set will produce all day and is normally around 1kva less than advertised kva
so if you have a 6.5 kva gen set ,it will handle current peaks to 6.5 kva but will burn out if required to run long time at that load
if the gen set is 1000 watts then rated watts will be less ( 750-800) for long time use

How do I fix my fuel consumption problem

fuel consumption in stationary motors relies on the load on the motor, choke position and air filter cleanliness
a rated load on a gen set is considerable less than advertised power rate
that means that if you have a gen set bought at 5.5 kva, the continuous rating is actually 4.5 kva and anything more puts considerable load on the motor and increases the fuel consumption
the difference in the ratings is to allow for the extra surge required on electric motor start up
add up all the appliances that you have going at once and see ti it is close to max out put as that may be a start of you consumption problems

Generator had been running for 3 hours with a/c and refrigerator and lights (on concession trailer)when we experienced a loss

the unit has gone into over load
The total power requirement has exceed the output of the generator
for example if the generator is a 2.500 kw or kva then it will generate well at 1.8 kva or kw but it will not run forever at 2.5 kva -kw
When a ac is running the power requirement will be constant on the generator and with the fridge as well then the load will be at the maximum out put of the unit.
when the fridge starts again the extra load will exceed the max out put of the generator and it will slow down ( lights dimming ) and eventually go into overload mode
have an accredited electrician calculate your maximum load requirement for an external power supply and then get a unit that is at least 15.. kva kw better that required
generally fridges use 1000watts , ac conditions will draw over 3000watts and any thing else adds up . I am guessing that your generator is only 2500 unit

Is wiring of a 100KVA with SX440 the same with a 125KVA with a MX321 AVR

talk with the gen set manufacturer
The question here is , you are fitting a different alternator to an engine so is the engine of sufficient torque to maintain 85% capacity under full load of the alternator
25KVA extra requires more HP than a 100 kva so that should be the first consideration
Is the engine big enough to run the bigger alternator

I have generac c 5000 series, that is 5000 watts . can you give me the equivalent watts given into Kva?


This is the formula The conversion of W to KVA is governed by the equation KVA=W/(1000*PF)

For example 1500W/(1000*0.83) = 1.8 kVA (assuming a power factor of 0.83)
Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

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
