## What is RPM for 50hz generator?

3000 rpm

The speed of 50 Hertz 2 poles synchronous generator is 3000 rpm. AC power frequency is determined by the pole number of the generator p and speed n, Hz = p*n/120.

### How do you calculate the RPM of a generator?

For synchronous machines like our generator: Rpm = 120f/p, where Rpm is the speed of the prime mover rotation in revolutions per minute, f is the frequency, and p is the number of generator poles.

**How many rpms does a generator run at?**

Typically, a United States portable generator runs at 3600 RPM, with 2 poles, for a design frequency of 60Hz. Larger portable generators run at 1800 RPM with 4 poles here.

**How do you convert a 50 hertz generator to 60 hertz?**

Changing Engine Speed to Vary Output Frequency To change the output frequency to 50 Hz for the same generator configuration, the engine speed needs to be reduced to 3,000 rpm. Similarly, for a 4-pole generator, an engine speed of 1,800 rpm produces output of 60 Hz.

## Why do generators run at 3600 rpm?

The alternator on a 3600 RPM Diesel generator spins twice as fast so it can get by with less than half of the copper of an 1800 RPM alternator. Due to the higher engine speed, these 3600 RPM generators wear out much sooner.

### Why do generators run at 1800 rpm?

The best generators have engines operating at 1800 RPM. These engines use less oil, run cooler, and are perfect for extended power outages. While more expensive than 3600 RPM generators, these engines are also more reliable and fuel efficient.

**How do you calculate power from RPM?**

The equation to calculate horsepower is simple: Horsepower = Torque x RPM / 5,252.

**Why do generators run at 1500 RPM?**

Because 1500rpm diesel generators have slower running engines, which are less-stressed than the smaller models, they’re suitable for static installation for daily prime power, as well as for standby use. The lifespan of one of these generators can last for 10,000+ hours.

## What happens if you run a 60Hz motor at 50Hz?

60Hz motor will run 20% slower on 50Hz power supply This also results in 20% less power. Basically, running the electric machine slower usually means it will be demanding less power. That’s good, as the motor also decrease 20% of its power, and the cooling fan is slow down too.
