Small Generator Voltage Regulation
Ice storm last night, now 50 degrees and sun is shining, I like it!!
Anyway, was out in the barn and decided to start my portable generator and let it run for a bit. Haven't used it much this winter. As usual, it started right up, then started to "hunt" as in incresing and decreasing speed. I'd noticed this in the past and just plug in a drop light, 60W and it immediately settles down. Curious if anyone else had noticed this behavior in small generators of this price point? I've added a link to the generator at amazon. I think I paid about $349 three or four years ago.
Yes, I know this has one of the "generic 4 cycle engines," read that as Honda Clone from China. However, it's been a bear cat since I got it.
Thanks for your time,
