So I reviewed the "restricted topics" section and saw "transformer less power supplies". Does this refer to a generator? My question is as follows: I have a 10HP 3 phase air compressor. I do not have 3 phase at my home. I have a 12/15 KW 4cyl diesel generator. The GE 10hp motor draws 27.2 A FLC at the 230 V taps service factor is 1.15. The generator puts out roughly 42A per leg tapped to 120/240 Delta 3 phase. It works without tripping motor overload or breaker on generator, but is hard starting. I was wondering if I could connect capacitors to ease inrush current load at startup? The motor is code H which someone told me can be looked up to determine the KVA per HP required under locked rotor conditions with nameplate voltage applied. I am working on that code value now. Is this an appropriate question for this forum? If so how do I go about sizing my caps and how should I connect - A-B, B-C, A-C or A-N(G), B-N(G), C-N(G)? Thanks in advance!
