I have a 40KVA Generator, supporting approx 27KW Electric Motors (15HP + 15 HP + 3HP + 1.5HP)

These are installed in a machine, and does not runn all the time. One 15HP, 3HP and 1.5HP runs continuously and second 15HP after some gaps, like after 10 mins.

Generator was run by a Six cylinder Engine. This engine is of very old truck, model 1970 so I am not sure about its HP. But it got its crank shaft cracked during operation. eSince it s very old engine, parts are not available.

Now I want to replace it a 4 cylinder, 59HP Engine. I want to make sure, can this 59HP diesal engine, support a load of 30KW? Or 27KW Atleast?
