The frequency of the generated voltage depends on the speed of your engine. I assume it's a gasoline engine. It's probably spinning at about 3600 rpm. You need to get a mechanic to fiddle with the govenor and drop it down to 3000 rpm. 50HZ is 83 percent of 60Hz so you need 83 percent of whatever speed you are currently running. My question is, why bother?

Will a 220v 60Hz appliance opperate with a power supply of 240v 50Hz?

It must state on the appliance, that it will work at 240v, 50hz. If it does not clearly state it on the name plate, damage to the appliance will occur.

Can you connect a 240v 60hz machine into 230v 50hz?

It makes a great difference what the machine is as to whether is can work on a different frequency.

Can a 230v 50 Hz transformer works at 220v 60hz?

Yes, there is no problem using a transformer specified for 230V-50Hz with a voltage of 220V-60Hz. Transformers in this range of voltage are designed for 220 to 240V and 50 to 60Hz.

Can you convert to 60hz from 50hz?

If the power is being produced by a generator the frequency can be controlled. The frequency is governed by the speed of the generator. Lower the revolutions of the generator will lower the frequency the generator produces. Increase the revolutions of the generator and the frequency will increase. You could also use static inverters. Use a 12 vdc or 24 vdc inverter designed for the American market. Transform and rectify the 50hz power down to the 12 or 24v, required for the inverter. A rotary converter would use a 50hz motor to drive a 60hz AC generator.

How does 50hz and 60hz differ from one another?

50 cycles/sec is 50Hz and 60cycles/sec is 60Hz

Why must a 60Hz be derated if it is operated at 50Hz how much derating must be done?

60Hz generator can be operated at 50Hz as along as certain conditions are met.Basically the problem is that there is a max flux achieveble in any given machine and EA = K(pie)(w) the max allowable E changes when the speed is changed. Vltage must be derated to 50/60 or 83.3% of its original value. jUst the opposite effect happen when 60Hz generator is operated at 50Hz.

Do you need a transformer to go from 208 V 60Hz input to 240 V 50Hz output?

A transformer would get you from 208V to 240V, if you find one in that range. But a transformer alone would not get you from 60Hz to 50Hz - if you really need to do that. That'd take some fairly complicated power electronics to achieve that change.

How do you convert electrical of 50hz to 60hz?


How can you determine if an electric motor is 50HZ or 60HZ if there is no name plate?

One way would be to hook it up to a supply (by itself, with no load) and measure the speed with a contact tachometer. If your supply is 60Hz, and the motor speed corresponded to one of the standard motor speeds, it would be a pretty safe bet you had a 60Hz motor. If the speed was about 20% faster than a standard speed, the motor is probably a 50Hz motor. Or 20% slower if you were running a 60Hz motor on 50Hz For instance, a 1750 RPM 50Hz motor would spin at about 2100 RPM if you ran it on 60Hz.

How can you make a 220V 50Hz electric generator work at 220V 60Hz?

The frequency is based on the RPM (speed) of the generator. If you over ride the governor on bigger generator or move the speed control upwards on smaller units you will be able to reach 60 Hz. Keep in mind though the voltage will increase also.

How can you convert US 120V or 240V circuit into a single-phase 240V circuit to use on a European appliance?

The voltage isn't a problem, you can run 220 from your house and use that to run a European appliance, the problem is whether the appliance is dependant on line HZ. European is 50HZ and US is 60HZ. If the appliance specifies 220/50HZ, it will probably give you trouble here. If it says 220V/50 or 60HZ

Can you operating 240v 60hz single phase electric kiln on 240v 50hz single phase power supply system?

If the kiln is strictly a resistance heating element, with no motor, then yes, it should work fine. Warning: the opposite, that is running a 240V 50hz (European) appliance from US 240V 60hz mains is very dangerous and should not be attempted. IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOBSAFELY AND COMPETENTLYREFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS. If you do this work yourself, always turn off the power at the breaker box/fuse panel BEFORE you attempt to do any work AND always use a meter or voltage indicatorto insure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.

Will a 230V 50Hz appliance work on a 240V 60Hz supply. In Canada we have 240V 60Hz and European kitchen appliances are made for 230V 50Hz. Can you use an EU fridge oven cooktop dishwasher microwave?

It depends on the appliance; some motors rely on the mains frequency of 50Hz to operate at the correct speed so changing to 60Hz might cause problems. It's probably best to check the manufacturer's website for the appliance's specifications; that should say the range of mains voltages/frequencies supported.
