Hope I can get some help here. I have a 1-1/2 hp. 115/230 volt single phase induction motor I want to use as a small generator. currently it's wired for 115 volt I need help with the math to(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

calculate the proper capacitor/s to use. Running no load amps as a motor draws 18 amps.

Name plate states:

110/230 volt single phase

UF: 500

Rpm 1720

1.1 kv.

duty cycle 100%

Amps 18/9

4 pole

I want to use this for 110 volt output. This motor is commercial grade. I understand slip so the rpm needs to run at around 1875. Please any help would be grateful.
