Why can’t I parallel two dissimilar inverted generators together?

- Nov 28, 2017 -

Synchronous (AC) Generators require 5 parameters to match for them to operate synchronously, or in parallel:

 

Same Terminal Voltage

 

Same Operating frequency

 

Same phase angle

 

Same number of phases

 

Same phase sequence

 

The first three are adjustable on the generator in order to get parameters to match for synchronization, the last two are designed and built into each generator and cannot be adjusted without some degree of offline service (number of phases is rather hard to adjust, phase sequence is a bit easier).

 

If you can’t match all 5 of these parameters, your generators cannot synchronize and you can’t have them working in parallel, that simple.
