Using a motorbike engine to rotate a generator

  1. Sep 9, 2012 #1
    I am thinking to use a 100c 8hp motorbike engine to rotate a 2KW generator which must be turned at 1500rpm. I thought of setting the bike engine to 2200rpm on no load so that when I put the generator on full load, the rpm hopefully will not go under 1500rpm. So what I want to know is, if the generator produces 240v at 1500 rpm and if i run the engine at 2200rpm, will the generator produce more than 240v. If so, if I fit a voltage regulator to the output of the generator, will it reduce the volt to 240v constant. Please help me with this guys
