Induction generator revisited

  1. Dec 15, 2014 #1
    Can anyone tell me what effect the value of the capacitor in an induction generator has. I am generating 230V, at an unknown speed. I am not particularly concerned about the generated frequency, but I want to run the thing at higher revs, and would like to know whether I need to reduce the capacitance or increase it. I suspect, reduce, but as I don't have capacitors to hand, I would like to buy the right one.

    Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?
