Hi, I'm here for help solving the problem of suppling a 240v, 45amp kiln off the grid. The catch is, we can't just use a large portable generator. So,
  • can you put three or more inverter generators in parallel?
  • can you get 240 volts out of paralleled 120volt inverter generators? Is there equipment that step can do this? (transformer?)
  • can you put inverter generators into series to raise voltage?
  • how would you supply 240volts and 50amps of power off grid if you couldn't use without a large portable generator?
Any ideas/suggests welcome.

I would use 2 paralleled Honda EU7000is gensets which are rated at 46A continuous and 58A short-term: Honda EU7000 Inverter Generators (2) and Parallel Cable Kit (CARB) | Honda EGD-HONDA7000KIT-2

It looks like 2 paralleled Powerhorse #74006 7500i units could also meet your load requirement... Powerhorse Inverter Generator 7500 Surge Watts, 6500 Rated Watts | Northern Tool

i think you are better off with a wood , pellet or gas fired kiln...
it gets expensive to run a gen at full tilt power for the days required for a kiln..

with the other fuel kiln they offer heat management with small power stokers or auto dampers.

the question i have is what fuels are available at this off grid site?
