Generator

I have a generator with the following specs:

15kw
18.75 kva
72 amp
230v
50Hz
Single Phase

Could anyone advise me what a suitable automatic voltage regulator and transfer switch would be for use with the generator to connect it the the household supply.

Any help regarding this would be appreciated

Thank-you

John

Are you in the US or Canada? If so and there is not a typo in the specs you can't use the generator. The output frequency is wrong. US is 60 Hz. Fifty hertz would most likely be European. Ebay purchase?

The generator should have its own regulator, unless things are done differently where you are.

Apart from that, you should seek help in a board that more caters to your locale.
