how do you excite a brushless generator

How Do You Excite a Brushless Generator?

A brushless generator’s alternator converts mechanical energy to electricity with the help of a rotor’s magnetic field. Subsequently, the ignition current flows into the magnetic field for full generator output. However, unlike a brushed alternator that uses brushes to conduct electricity, a brushless alternator cannot build and transmit voltage without magnetism. Therefore, how do you […]

kohler generator runs but no power

My Kohler Generator Runs, but No Power is Produced

Generators are big, complex power generators that we rely on to keep the world functioning when utility electricity breaks down. But what if your Kohler generator runs, but no power is produced? The loss of residual magnetism in the alternator and a failing AVR or other excitation component are typical causes of a generator not […]

how do you restore residual magnetism in a generator

How Do You Restore Residual Magnetism in a Generator?

Remanence or residual magnetism in a generator is the amount of magnetism left in a generator after getting rid of the external magnetic field from the generator. This occurrence can be seen in portable generators, motors or transformers. When the generator loses its ability to start up, there is a chance that the residual magnetism is […]

what causes the uu code on kohler generators

What Causes the UU Code on Kohler Generators?

UU code is also known as under-voltage shutdown. What Causes the UU Code on Kohler Generators? The code UU indicates that the generator’s onboard diagnostic electronics have detected a low AC output. The system will shut down if the voltage falls below 80% of the nominal system voltage for more than 10 seconds to safeguard […]
