SR3 Brush 8.25KVA genset
« on: July 06, 2020, 08:09:43 PM »
Hi everyone, many thanks for reading my post, I'm almost complete on the rebuild of the SR3 part of my genset, so began the tear down on the generator which is a Brush 8.25KVA single phase 240V 40amp set. I would also like to say at this point I have a long history in engineering(mechanicle and production) but absolutley no experience in electrical and even less in generators.
I would like to upgrade some of the internals from the old bridge recifyer to solid state, would a 150A 1600V recifyer do the job (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/MDQ150A-150A-1600V-Full-Wave-Diode-Module-Single-Phase-Rectifier-HA/373081571613)
also could someone kindly explain what the box on the top of the genset is for and what would be the best way forward to change this for a box with a couple of 240V 16A sockets and breakers(if that can be done).
I've added a picture of the box and it's internals, hopefully this will help
Many thanks in advance]
