Gen head with inverter?

(1/1)

bigbad:
I often seen generators advertised as being "inverters generators".  My understanding of that is that the inverter generator puts out a more suitable kind of electricity for computers and electronics.  Is the inverter portion of that similar to what used to be called a line conditioner?  an electric device that would prevent surges and clean up the electricity?

mike90045:
An Inverter Generator, is a merely a generator that powers a Inverter.   if the load on the the inverter is small, the engine runs slower.
 The "generator" part is usually 3 or 6 phase, gets rectified and then drives the inverter for your 120VAC

cujet:
I'm not aware on any. Could be cool, as engine speed could managed with load.

rleonard:
My 1940's Ruston Hornsby generator is now an inverter generator!  To solve lumpy AC power stemming from a speeding 240 RPM single cylinder diesel, I'm running the power through a VFD (Variable Frequency Drive).  The output is perfect 60.000 HZ AC power.
