I have a question in relation to electrical generators, 240VAC 50 Hz. A colleague wants to run a piece of gear that draws around 10A @ 240VAC with a pf of 0.8. He has indicated that running two 2kVA generators in parallel will provide greater ampage output, thus allowing the equipment with power draw greater than the output of a single 2kVA (I estimate 6.6A @ pf of 0.8) plant to be run. My first thought is OMG, what about the phases of each, are they in sync? Am I off track and there is no problem? If there is a problem what will be effected, the equipment being run (designed for 240VAC 50Hz) or the generators? My gut is telling me that there is a problem and that it will most likely damage the generators. Your help is greatly appreciated.
