Q: What is the difference between brushless and with brushes alternators? I see the AVR model has them, this s model does not. Both IMD 16pto models.

Thank you.

by Patrick Nelson from Arkansas on March 03, 2014

A: The main differences in Brushed Alternators and Brushless Alternators is the way they excite the internal stator. Typically larger generators are all brushed as they can provide faster load output then a brushless alternator can but brushed systems can require maintenance to the alternator by having to change the brushes. Brushless systems do not have this maintenance option available and when the unit dies it cannot be repaired as the cost would be more then replacing one.

Either way, IMD states that either their brushed or brushless alternators will maintain an appropriate level of Hz output where you will get 5% or less THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) which is comparable to or better then standard utility power.

AVR gives you a little better/tighter control over the voltage output, usually +/- 1%, versus a standard capacitor which may vary a little more like standard utility power.

Q: I have a 45hp tractor with 36 PTO hp. I have a 3500 sq ft house with 2 freezers, 2 refrigerators, well house, aerobic septic and 2 AC units. I see 16kw and 25 kw PTO generators everywhere but what about 18kw?

I do not know if the 16kw will work for the entire house and my tractor can only handle 18kw which I believe will be sufficient. What can you suggest?

If I got a 22kw generator would it supply me with the 18kw my tractor can supply without problems?

by Jason McCartnet from Texas on June 24, 2012

A: You shouldn't have any issues at all and you should be able to pull 18KW out of a 22KW generator.

The one thing you would want to do, should the decision be made that the 22KW felt like the right option, is to monitor the meter on the generator. As long as the tractor can maintain the load at 60Hz, there shouldn’t be an issue.

The true concern of using a tractor that has a rated HP that is less than recommended is that situation where you pull more power than the tractor can handle. In which case, the Hz will drop and you can damage the generator or what you are power with it (depending on how large the drop is and at what rate).
