### Whole House Generator:

Whole House Generator i have a small catering unit in garage conversion at home here in the uk , 3 phase is way out of my price range and i need a bigger oven i have a 3 phase one that is 7kw per phase and i can get it converted to single phase it is 4 deck and if i had all decks on ive been told it would need a 72 amp supply yet the whole house/garage is on a 60 amp main fuse,would the electric supplier up my supply and change the amps or would a 3 phase generator be better or maybe an inverter, the oven itself is a tom chandley convection oven and has no motors or blowers just top and bottom heating elements thanks to all the yahoo expert users who answer the questions

### Slide 2:

I live in a historic district that utilizes an ancient power ditribution system. As a result we are faced with MULTIPLE poweroutages every year. I am going to be buying a “Whole House” generator. I however, have no idea of the correct size. Rather than deal with a salesman who may provide me with information that suits his agenda (and pocketbook) rather than mine.

### Slide 3:

How do I correctly determine the load of all the circuits in my house? We have a 100 amp electrical box with 4-30 amp , 5-15 amp, and 6-20 amp electrical breakers. After pricing NG by the cubic foot and seeing what some models will consume a NG/LP model isn’t feasible. NG here is just at \$1 ft3 and these things use upwards of 150-200 ft3 per hour. No way. Looks like a gas powered manual type gen that will power only critical circuits of the house. Any other ideas?

### Slide 4:

MANPIG has the answer. You will also need a transfer switch as well to safely switch from the Line Voltage to the generator so only one Electrical source goes through your 100 Amp Load Center at a time. Math formula for the size is: P (Power) = E (Voltage) times I (Current) So 240 Volts (120 + 120) time 100 Amps = 24,000 Watts That’s 24 Kw Max capability of your home. A 25 or 30 Kw generator will do just fine and have a licensed electrician do the job (permits, inspections will be needed too! Good Luck ! ! !

### Slide 5:

We’ve had a lot of power outages lately and are considering getting a generator. I had a dealer tell me that I’d need a 20,000 Watt generator to run this heat pump, but this sounds very excessive. By the way, I am talking whole-house generators.

### Slide 6:

Thanks. Follow up question: since I have natural gas running to my house a contractor suggested that a natural gas generator (which apparently also runs propane) would be the best way to go. I’ve already mostly ruled out gasoline generators because I don’t like the risk of storing so much gasoline. But, in this situation is there any reason to go with diesel over natural gas?

### Slide 7:

I thing that 20KW is not over the top, as you have to have a diversity factor of 20% to cope with all eventualities, but you do not need to strain the generator and the winding will get hot and then the insulation will break down. I recommend a diesel engine as these are very reliable, easy to start and do not suffer the problems such as gumming as do gas engines. Just lag the fuel lines against winter frosts and you will be good to go. By the way, install the very best NO-VOLT CONTACTOR. Don’t skimp on this, as you will not be happy when you really need power and do not have power for the want of saving a couple of dollars on a cheap relay.

### Slide 8:

MagniWork Generator Review – Magniwork Generator is free power system that uses magnets to generate electricity. By only using magnetic force and no other energy input, such as water, heat, sunlight, coal and wind, this generator can induce perpetual motion and produce completely free electricity.

### Slide 9:

Here are only a few of the benefits of Magniwork magnetic generator: It can help you save 30%-50% on your power bill or even completely eliminate it. It’s very eco-friendly and doesn’t pollute the environment or use valuable resources. The system is absolutely safe, as it isn’t flammable or combustible. It doesn’t wear out over time like other alternative energy systems (like solar cells). This means it has extremely low maintenance costs.

### Slide 10:

we are on day 8 of no power due to Ike. We bought a 7200/8400 watt generator and it is running the whole house, even my dryer (if I turn off everything else)… So, it’s getting HOT here and we thought we might try to run the ‘fan’ setting on our A/C unit (NO compressor!) at night when the air is cool. But the blower won’t come on. Is it the generator, or is something else the problem? I have the system set to ‘off’ and the fan set to ‘on’..it is a programmable thermostat if that makes a difference. the generator should be able to handle the a/c fan however the a/c fan is probably two twenty power and you are probably only supplying one ten to the house. (dryer motor and timer is one ten) look at your supply and connections. tmnm
