Would a steam generator be better supplied by a 120V supply or 240V?

Electric steamers are available for home use. The answer is to look at the machine's nameplate to find out the voltage required.

I used to work for a company that made a steam generator for the upholstery and jewelry industries, those were 120 Volt glorified water heaters.

Remember, WATTS are Watts no matter what voltage is used by the unit. This is another question that sounds like a homework question, if it is, study OHM's Law and understand it. It is easier than you think!

A change in supply means that the supply curve has shifted. With a stable demand, this will result in a change in the quantity supplied but also a change in price. A change in only quantity supplied without a change in supply would require a horizontal supply curve. Alternatively a change in quantity supplied and price may occur if there is a shift of the demand curve.

An increase in supply will cause a decrease in demand. The value of what is being supplied would also drop.

A 5500 Watt generator would be ideal when you're looking to supply power to your whole house. If your house is fairly large though, you'll need an even greater whole house generator.

The AC supply would have to be changed to DC supply.. This would be done with the use of a rectifier. It would be done usually with a full wave rectifier.

You can purchase an electric power generator, but it won't do you much good if the electric goes out. A kerosene or deisel generator would be a better choice.

A generator would be forced to produce a high output kVAr if it has a lot of non-linear loads connected to it i.e. fluorescent lighting, switchmode power supplied equipment (PCs, old servers etc).

An electrical generator is used to generate electrical energy. So anyone who needs electrical energy has to use a generator - or buy energy from someone else who has one.

Yes and no. If a motor was supplying electricity to a system, then it would be called a generator. The device, while unexcited, is both a generator AND a motor, but until it excites a system (a generator) or is excited by a system (a motor) does it becomes one or the other.

No, your home service would have to be a three phase distribution to utilize the use of the generator correctly. Homes wires in North America use the standard single phase distribution.Another AnswerIn some European countries, three-phase supplies to homes are quite quite common. My home, here in Cyprus, for example, has a three-phase supply and a three-phase distribution panel that distributes the load between the three lines. So, for a property with a three-phase supply, if you wish to provide standby power to the entire property, then a three-phase generator would be required but would be an expensive option. However, for most people, this would be unnecessary, as they would usually only rely on a standby generator to temporarily supply specific single-phase loads, such as refrigerators, deep freezers, etc.

Copper is a metal, and is an excellent conductor of electricity. That's why it would be chosen for use in an electromagnetic generator.

I can answer that question if you would supply me with a serial number along with the model number you already supplied.

No it what work 756 watts = 1 HP. You would need a generator that can supply 756 x 25 = 18900 watts.

Motors are rated in horsepower, not KW. A 750,000 watt motor, at 220 volt, would be a 1005 H.P. motor and about the size of a large pickup truck! I suspect you're asking about a 750 KW generator. You must not only supply the correct voltage and amperage to operate it, you must have a 3 phase power supply. Unless you're in a commercial bldg. you likely don't have 3 phase power and can't operate that generator.

It will depend very much on your local supply company. You will be supplying to the local system at your house voltage (unless you are going in for a fully commercial supply) so you are not going straight to the grid in any case. The local company would certainly want to know what you are doing, for safety reasons. Suppose they had isolated your house supply for work, and you connected your generator at that time, you would make the house supply live again and endanger workers on the lines, so you have to be controlled.

No ligaments are not supplied by blood. No there are muscle so they would not be supplied by blood.

The composite supply rule applies where there is a principal element as well as an ancillary element or elements being supplied and where the ancillary elements would not realistically be sold on their own without the principal element. Such ancillary supplies are not physically and economically dissociable from the principal supply.

Oil, is an example of an economic good whose producer would increase the quantity supplied if price were to go up. The oil producing nations (o.p.e.c.) can control how much oil is supplied to the international market, and benefits by keeping the supply low, but when the price goes up due to demand going up, then they can increase the supply at the high price. (yahoo answers has this as an answer and it fits)

The best thing to do would be to repair your motor home generator if it has stopped working. Motor home generators are quite expensive, so it is very important to keep your generator serviced and in good repair.

Interlocks fitted to breakers suggest that a load is supplied from two separate sources. An example would be where one breaker is supplied from a utility source and the other breaker will be supplied from a generator source. To prevent both breakers from being on at the same time to supply the load, an interlock is placed across both breakers. This allows only one breaker to be on at a time. Manual interlocks allow a person to make the decision as to which power source will supply the load. Automatic transfer switches have built in interlocks and will sense where the source power is coming from. This type of system switches from one electrical source to another without any human intervention.

It depends on how the home is heated, where it is and how efficiently the power is used. But around 10kilowatts is probably what you're after.

User Avatar

No. The term SOURCE means that it is a supply of electrical energy, and a light bulb does not supply electricity, it uses it. A battery, generator, fuel cell, or solar cell would be a source.

User Avatar

A dryer certainly can, and the hot water supplied to the washer can, but a washing machine runs on electricity, so you would need to have a generator that runs on propane to make this a reality.

I power my home from a 7000 watt generator. It connects to a 12 circuit transfer panel. Backup power is supplied to the well pump, fridge, freezer, furnace, microwave and toaster ovens, television, computer, and several lights.
