First Run..

Today we gave it a run on petrol, with our newly designed  auto-start system. It just had the basic functionality of turning the generator on when electricity from mains cut off, and turns off the generator when electricity from the mains resumed.

Here's a rough video in the dark!

Our generator has arrived!!

Hi everyone, here's our generator

Its a ''Matari MG5500E'', which is a 3.5KV gasoline (Petrol) generator. Its has manual as well as self-start option for starting. The choke is not auto-controlled, so we have to use a plunger or stepper to control the choke at a later stage for its autonomous auto-start operation.

As for now, it runs on petrol only, but soon we will be installing a natural-gas kit to it so that it could run on both fuels.
