tabora, that is a really nice setup! Great little shed for it. And thanks for sharing the AC-output test results, that's really interesting. Plus, that's a cool analyzer!
Curious, do you know how well it maintains frequency? My Generac, with mechanical governor, suggested setting the governor to 61-63 Hz, I think, with no load. Then, as the load increased, it would drop to around 60 Hz. This seems like an area where an electronic governor could be a nice feature.
My inverter generator always puts out 60 Hz, of course. But when a sudden load hits, the RPM drops before the electronic governor responds, which results in a voltage sag, rather than frequency sag. Though if I turn Eco mode off, so it runs at a higher RPM even when not required, that helps minimize voltage sags.
Osviur, sorry, what is a harmonic spectrum analysis? I'm picturing something like an FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) analysis of the output, to show how much of the output is at 60 Hz, vs 120 Hz, etc? But I'm just guessing.
