I run a 4.2 kw chinese diesel gene which has a 15 ùF capacitor on it. This capacitor keeps blowing up regularly. It cost 18Au$ to replace each time and the city is 100km away... Obviously it does 'nt like my big 2.4 kw grinder or my MIG welder (though the 10hp engine and 4.2 kw gene can handle it ). What should I do?? Can I place additional capacitors in parallel on the circuit? I understand this works like a shock absorber. Please don't tell me to get a bigger generator... Thanks for considering my question, I am not on the grid and depend on that gene.
