/ Can I test/measure the load at my generator? #1
That would be handy!It depends on your generator wiring. Is there a open wire were a clamp on amp meter can hung.
A plug connector can be modified to provide a loop of wire.
Or if using a transfer switch there is usually a location that can be accessed for a clamp on amp meter.
If you are using 120 volt cord connections you can get adapters to fit the receptacles.
many of them have a winding to increase the value by a factor of ten to be more accurate.
correct. You should already know the voltage - 120 or 240 (2 120 legs). Install a amp meter to monitor the current draw of the tool you are operating with the generator. Voltage x current = wattage.Just measure volts and current. I installed a power meter on mine but it's not necessary.
