Mike - thanks for this.  I will read the white paper in detail tomorrow...

I think my initial impetus for this was the web site specifically calls out switching power supplies causing harmonic distortion that can lead to increased neutral currents on paralleled generators.  Our rig that would be on generators like this is all switching power supply amplifiers, switching power supply console, powered wedges, and LEDs.   Essentially everything is powered by a switching supply.

I remember a discussion at one point on this board, possibly including JR about harmonic distortion and non power factor corrected supplies on many switching power supply amps....


I suppose the fun thing to do would be to setup our rig, rent some genny's and measure neutral current and look at waveform distortion.    Anyway I am sure I will have more comments, questions after reading the white paper.

Everyone,

I've split this thread into the first "Led Talks" so please continue your questions and comments about running generators in parallel on the new thread so we keep it all in one place.
