Thoughts on Furnace Generator Transfer Switch Install 1

I have een on generator ower u to 2 weeks and loose ower for at least a day every year usually several. The imortant art is not overloading your generator , I usually am well elow the generators rating and maye close to 12 of its eak rating. The reason this makes a difference is ecause when generators are over loaded they start surging this causes the frequency to ounce and the voltage to sike then droo. With a roer size for the load the generator will only vary slightly. Your inverter rating is 2kw ut what is the load the oiler needs (the um eing the ig draw of the system) if your recirculating um is a fractional horse ower you would roaly e fine, setting u a transfer switch for this one unit may e a good idea ut I would want a quality heavy duty extension cord 50 is not that long ut ums have a large starting current and a small extension cord can increase voltage dro , create excessive heat in the wires and damage the system where a Quality 12 gauge cord will e fine.

How do you wire a ortale generator to your house?

Most ortale generators lack sufficient ower to run an entire home and as a result the homeowner is required to select those aliances or functions which will receive ower in an outage. If you go online you will find several tyes of transfer switches that are designed to e used for the secific urose of connecting selected ortions of the home wiring system to a ortale generator. Purchase a good transfer switch that handles all the circuits you want. You can switch etween circuits and do not have to run all circuits at the same time so that you can stay within the caacity of your ortale generatorThe one I urchased required me to install a second anel (switch ox) adjacent to my rimary electrical anel and to connect the lines I wanted the aility to energize during an outage (like my refrigerator, well um, television and several other circuits). Then I also ran a line from the "new" anel to a rotected exterior outlet for the cordline from my generator.I am careful with electricity and know only enough to erform asic tasks like relacing switches. The installation took a few hours ut was relatively easy thanks to really great ste-y-ste instructions sulied y the transfer switch manufacturer. Reading these instructions convinced me I could install the switch myself. As a result, when I have a ower outage I can take out the ortale generator, connect it to my house and run it to select circuits (oserving the loads) during an outage with no ossiility of it energizing lines ack to the ower comany. It takes aout five minutes to connect my generator and run it when needed. Once the generator is running with the circuits selected, those connected in-home circuits oerate "as normal" from inside the house.How do you wire a ortale generator to your house?.

Why aren't Home portable gasoline generator sets as quiet and efficient as vehicle engines?

First off you have the engine. The engine in a portable generator *totally* lacks the sophistication and computer control of the prime mover in your car. If generators came equipped with engines of the same level of sophistication of even the most basic car no one could afford to buy them. Most generators are powered with engines of the same level of sophistication as your lawnmower. Secondly, protable generators are first and foremost u2026portable. They have to be easily handled and easily stored which means there are size/weight constraints. You start adding even the most basic sophistication like water cooling the engine (this would help maintain the engine at a generally lower operating temperature whereby you may be able to eek more power out of it and it would also help to quiet it) and all of a sudden your portable generator isnu2019t so much anymore. Portable generators are used as a standby power source of limited capability u2026run the fridge and power some lights is about it. And as such they are generally not used on a day in and day out basis. If they are, then you have to figure the cost of running your portable generator versus actually having power tapped into whatever youu2019ve got going u2026if thatu2019s even possible so complaining about your generator is kinda moot; you want electricity this is what you got. And Honda generators are quiet. I think a bird farts louder than most Honda generators. Some of the less expensive generators are definitely noisier but then you pay your money and take your choice.Why aren't Home portable gasoline generator sets as quiet and efficient as vehicle engines?.

Installing an outdoor inlet for a portable generator

If you want this to look decent, and be safe. You want to have something like this:This setup assumes that the generator provides overcurrent, short-circuit, overload, and ground-fault protection. Likely via a circuit breaker, and a GFCI receptacle. If this is not the case, you'll want to provide that protection within your wiring.If the generator output does not have short-circuit, overcurrent, and overload protection, you'll want to install a circuit breaker somewhere (likely between the inlet and the receptacle). If the generator does not provide ground-fault protection, you'll want to have that somewhere as well (likely via GFCI receptacle, or GFCI circuit breaker).You'll notice in the above diagram, that an inlet is used, and that the female end of the gen. cord plugs into the inlet. To understand why this is important, let's take this example.The power goes out. You go out and start up the generator. You plug one end of a double male ended cord into the generator, and drag the other end over to the "input receptacle". As you do so, you touch the exposed prongs at the end of the cord. ZAP! You dead.If the generator does not accept a male plug connection, you'll want to make up a double female cord. That way you'll plug a female end into the generator, and a female end into the inlet. You don't ever want to have exposed energized parts, as they are a serious shock hazard.Make sure all wiring and devices are sized properly. If you're working with a 20 ampere 125 volt output from the generator. That would mean 20 ampere devices, and at least 12 AWG copper wires.As this setup is basically an extension cord, there's no need to bond it to the electrical system of the house. The neutral-ground bond on the generator should be left in place.NEC 702.11 says that the generator has to be grounded to a grounding electrode in accordance with 250.30.According to NEC 702.7(C), there should sign near the inlet that reads:WARNING:

FOR CONNECTION OF A SEPARATELY DERIVED (BONDED NEUTRAL) SYSTEM ONLY

Step up voltage Transformer for more watt?

No they can't.The power supply, in this case the generator, must be able to supply enough power for it to work.The transformer is not able to magically increase the power output of the original power source. Instead it will waste some in the process of transforming the voltage, so you get even less power out of it.

You need a bigger generator for this task.The problem you are facing is the conservation of energy. And energy is power over time. So if you have a power supply with 200 W, it will give you 200 J per second of energy.

If you have a device using 700 W, it will need 700 J every second. No transformer in the world is able to give you 700 J of energy every second when it is supplied only with 200 J per second.You could do an interleaved mode, so you could store energy for 4 seconds, then you have 800 J, then you can power your device for one second. That is the was those ultra high power lasers work - they would need more power than the grid is able to supply, so they are driven pulsed so there is time to charge.In your case that is not possible.As for your comment, please do not mix up the units. What is shown in that video is a step up from 3 V to 500 V. Only the voltage is increased. The product of voltage and current is the same (well minus losses).So if that guy takes 500 W from the 500 V (1 A), he needs to have 3 V and 166 A (500 W) at the input.There is no way around energy conservation.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) for Portable Generators
Is there a way to remove carbon mono oxide from Haemoglobin once it sticks with Haemoglobin?Carbon monoxide (CO) bonds to Iron (II) atom ie., Fe2 ion present in Haemoglobin 20 times more strongly than Carbon - dioxide (CO2), because CO is a strong Ligand than CO2.So once it gets bonded to the Fe(II) of Haemoglobin, it doesn't get replaced with the inhaled Oxygen atom. This is called as CO - poisoning. We shall see one by one what isCarbon monoxide poisoningSymptomsPlaces of CO poisoning (risks)DiagnosisTreatmentPreventionCarbon Monoxide PoisoningWhat is carbon monoxide poisoning?Carbon monoxide (CO) is a gas that's both odourless and colorless. It's found in combustion (exhaust) fumes produced by:heatersfireplacescar mufflersspace heaterscharcoal grillscar enginesportable generatorsEveryone is exposed to small amounts of carbon monoxide throughout the day. However, inhaling too much of it can cause CO poisoning.CO can increase to dangerous levels when combustion fumes become trapped in a poorly ventilated or enclosed space (such as a garage). Inhaling these fumes causes CO to build up in your bloodstream, which can lead to severe tissue damageThe symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning?The most common symptoms of CO poisoning are:dull headacheweaknessnauseavomitingconfusiondizzinessdifficulty breathingIf you breathe in large amounts on CO, your body will begin to replace the oxygen in your blood with CO. When this occurs, you can become unconscious. Death may occur in these cases. Persons at the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning?CO poisoning occurs when there's a large amount of CO present in the air. The actual poisoning happens when you breathe in this air, especially if you're in a place that isn't well ventilated. The risk for inhaling too much CO increases if you're near any of the following:fuel-burning space heatergas stove or stovetopwater heaterfireplaceidling car or truck in a garage or enclosed spacefurnacerecreational vehicles with gas heatersThese appliances typically produce a safe amount of CO. However, the amount of CO in the air can increase quickly if these appliances are used in enclosed or poorly ventilated spaces.If you use these appliances in your home, you should place a CO detector near these appliances. It's also important to avoid leaving your car running inside your garage or other enclosed spaces. Carbon monoxide poisoning diagnosisA doctor or nurse will take a blood sample to determine the amount of CO in your blood. Once CO levels increase to 70 parts per million (ppm) and above, symptoms become more noticeable. These symptoms may include nausea, dizziness, and unconsciousness.How is carbon monoxide poisoning treated?If a doctor suspects you have CO poisoning, you'll receive treatment immediately once you're in the hospital. Quick treatment is essential to prevent life-threatening complications. Treatment may involve:Oxygen treatmentThe best way to treat CO poisoning is to breathe in pure oxygen. This treatment increases oxygen levels in the blood and helps to remove CO from the blood. Your doctor will place an oxygen mask over your nose and mouth and ask you to inhale. If you're unable to breathe on your own, you'll receive oxygen through a ventilator.Oxygen chamberYour doctor may temporarily place you in a pressurized oxygen chamber (also known as a hyperbaric oxygen chamber). The oxygen chamber has twice the pressure of normal air. This treatment quickly increases oxygen levels in the blood and it's typically used in severe cases of CO poisoning or to treat CO poisoning in pregnant women. What are the long-term health risks of carbon monoxide poisoning?Even minor cases of CO poisoning can cause serious complications. These may include:brain damageheart damageorgan damagedeathDue to the seriousness of these potential complications, it's important to get help as soon as possible if you believe you have CO poisoning. How can I prevent carbon monoxide poisoning?To avoid getting CO poisoning, you can take the following preventive measures:Ensure there's plenty of ventilation in areas with appliances or in a recreational vehicle that burn gas, wood, propane, or other fuel.Buy a CO detector and place it in an area near the source of CO. Make sure to change the batteries regularly. Don't fall asleep or sit for a long time in an idling car that's in an enclosed space. Don't sleep near a gas or kerosene space heater. Don't ignore symptoms of CO poisoning. If you've been exposed to CO, get outdoors immediately.------Why doesn't my DC generator work?What causes generators to stop producing power/voltage?The most common cause of portable generators failing to produce electricity is from the loss of residual magnetism. Generators work by moving electrical conductors through a magnetic field. Your generator does not have magnets. The magnetic field is created by taking some of the generator output voltage and converting it to DC and feeding it to a coil to make an electromagnet. When there is a small amount of magnetism left over from the last time the generator was running, it is called residual magnetism. The little bit of magnetism is enough to produce a small amount of electricity.This small amount of electricity is needed to create an even stronger electric magnet. As the engine turns this magnet moving its electric field, through the stator windings, your generator produces even more power. When the residual magnetism is lost, the generator will produce no power at start-up. This residual magnetism can be lost naturally from not being used or from the load on your generator being connected when the generator is shut off. It can also happen from running a generator with no load for too long. Generators need to work and it helps maintain that residual magnetism.When they are running, a load should be connected to it. It helps create an even stronger magnetic field. Before you shut it off, turn off the switch or breaker to disconnect the load. If you shut off a generator with the load connected, it can essentially drain or demagnetize the electromagnet. Try and avoid running out of fuel. How to fix it:There are a few methods of restoring a generator residual magnetism12 Volt Generator Battery MethodLocate the voltage regulator for your generator.Unplug the two wires that connect to the generator brushes. Normally one is red and the other is black or white. Connect the black or white to the generator ground battery terminal. Plug in a light, turn on the generator breaker or switch and start the motor. Connect the battery 12 volts (red cable) to the red wire on the terminals you removed for three seconds. Remove your wires and replace the plug.The generator should now be producing power again. Make sure you unplug the brush wires from the automatic voltage regulator or you will damage the regulator. Do not contact the voltage regulator or other wires as dangerous voltages may be present that can cause electric shock. Electric Drill MethodPlug in an electric drill into the generator receptacle. If the drill is reversible, move the direction switch to the forward position. Start the generator.While depressing the trigger on the drill, spin the drill chuck in reverse direction. This will excite the field and the generator will now produce electricity. If spinning the chuck one direction does not work, try spinning the chuck in the other direction as you may have the reverse switch positioned backward. The reason this works is that the electric motor in the drill will act as a small generator when spun backward. The magnets in the drill's motor induce a voltage into the motor winding, which is fed back through the trigger cord and into the generator receptacle.From there it goes into the power winding of the stator. The voltage going through the power winding creates a magnetic field which is intensified due to the iron core of the stator laminations. The rotor intersects this magnetic field as it is spun past the power winding, thus inducing a voltage in the rotor winding. Once current flow is present in the rotor winding the rotor has been flashed..------How could the Kobold Cannon's munition work?This will be exceptionally inefficientGiven a finite but enormous power supply as specified by the OP, the critical limitations are the launching G-force and the aerodynamic characteristics of the projectile. Unfortunately, these two characteristics combine very badly in this problem due to the extremely light payload.As pointed out in Cadence's answer, the human body can survive briefly sustained G-forces of about 10G (Assume kobolds have the same tolerance). However, forces this high are only survivable if the body is oriented correctly - basically if a person is lying on their back with their legs slightly raised. Assuming that a kobold is proportioned roughly the same as a human child massing 40ish kg, this means that the base of the carrier projectile needs to be about a metre across. Which means that the bore of the cannon must be slightly over a metre in diameter to allow for the thickness of the carrier projectile walls.Note the massive amount of empty space in the carrier projectile. This is bad because it means that the projectile has very low density and will decelerate relatively quickly in air compared to a more dense projectile. Given that the OP has specified that there are no limits on the launch cannon's power, the brute force solution is to make the walls of the capsule heavy in order to increase the density of the carrier, although there are limits or the parachute required to allow a safe landing will be enormous. Making the capsule out of 3 mm steel sheets will add about 100 kg to the mass of the carrier, plus a bit more will probably be required as supports in the nose cone to ensure that it does not collapse, invert and impale the kobold on launch. Total mass of carrier plus payload plus parachute will be in the 150-180 kg range, so the required parachute will be slightly larger than used by an airborne soldier (assume 90 kg soldier with 30 kg of equipment). A projectile with these characteristics launched at 45 degrees with a velocity of 150-200 m/s should make it about 1 kilometre, further with a good trailing wind or by making this a base bleed projectile. This will require a cannon between 113 and 200 metres long with a bore of 1 metre.(For those thinking that the base needs to be reinforced or it will pop out under 10G acceleration - this capsule assumes that the magnetizable carrier described in the question is a separate component behind the carrier projectile that sits behind the projectile and evenly supports the entire base while the carrier is accelerating the projectile out of the cannon.)Alternative configurationThe above design looks at maximum survivable acceleration in order to minimise the cannon length to a mere (!) hundred metres or so. If a longer cannon is somehow feasible then the carrier projectile diameter can be reduced to around 40 cm if the kobold is sitting with their backside and feet on the base with their knees drawn up to their chest. There is a shortage of studies regarding the survivable limits of kobolds or equivalently sized midgets/children being accelerated in this pose citation needed but assume 6 G can be tolerated. In this case a more dense projectile with better range characteristics may be used, but the cannon length is now over 300 metres.
