In researching MPP LV-MK Hybrid models I saw this notice on their website. It looks, the MK 1-3 KW models and the 5048's are not recommended to use with generators. Can anyone confirm? I have a Honda EU-2200 inverter generator.
You just need to use one of the newer inverter type generators rather than the old governor types. The older governor types would get hunt-y and the frequency would vary back and forth, and then the AIO's lose sync and get angry.
Also be aware that if you use a split phase AIO it requires your "grid" input (be it grid or generator or hamster wheel) to be split phase as well. You can't charge a split-phase 240v inverter with a single-phase 120v generator.
The AIMS 3200 with 'two wire electric start' works well with the Aims inverters however the THD
should be less than 5% - AIMS state that it is less than 10% - no test data. I will take a chance
that it will work with the 3048LV-MK as this newer model is a bit more tolerant than former MPP
models due to the stated zero ms response time.
I am working on a filter module to go at the output of common generators that will 'smooth' the sine-wave.
I will let you know when I receive the Aims inverter 3200 gen-set - price this week is $909.00
