    I have 2.5 kva 50 hertz natural gas generator . Can i run this generator on low rpm does it any harmfull to alternator (maximum speed is 3600RPM) some one told me that the slow RPM could overheatup the alternator motor.
    Another question is that how to adjust rpm; through governer or through idle speed screw.

    It was designed to self-regulate at a specific RPM, any fine adjustment is only there to ensure that it runs at the proper RPM.

    I don't expect a very logical answer, but why would you want to run it at a lower RPM?
