I connect 9 lead 3 phase motor with capacitors for operate as generator. It works very well except load regulation sucks if av held constant for maintain 60hz frequency I using 5HP (which is 3.729kw) motor for Gen. To allow for inefficiencies I decide full load should be 2.5kw. When it's running at av for 60hz, unloaded voltage is 145v and loaded by 2.5kw voltage is 116v at single phase outputs. For now I follow with ferroresonant constant voltage xfmr but think there's better way? Tnx for help!
