    Saw advert for this electrical generator. What do you think?

    Bergin 10KW generator with rack and wheels for quick sale, almost new less than one year old hardly used. Ideal for 3 phase power for industrial use or as a backup generator.

    70,000 baht ?

    That would pay my electric bill here for 6 years

    Get yourself a couple of Burmese illegals and hook one of these up

    Bought similar model from BlackGang about 2 years ago for 15K. Works perfect.... except ever since I bought it we've never had a power cut.

    Don't do it Gerbs. This is some sort of Nigerian scam deal. Besides soon as you sell it your power will go off for a month.

    We have power cuts at least once a week.
    Normally there is a loud bang,followed by a scream then off go's the tv and fridge,lights out and the fan slows to a stop.I being concerned head straight to the fridge,out with a beer start drinking while its still cold,the wife lights a candle,if the power go's off at night.
    As i am worried my beers are going to get warm i down another.the wife thinks candle light is "romantic darling".
    I down the second beer,and.
    The rest is private.

    I bought some battery powered LED lights from BigC
    They are self adhesive and stick to the ceiling wherever you want them.
    At 60 baht a pop they are a lot cheaper than a generator

    The lights can go off all they want; it's the fans or AC going off that I don't enjoy.

    Anyway, single phase supply has only one phase, but 3 phase has 3.

    Happy now?

    pretty sure it's the ampage. single phase is 10 amp and 3 phase is 30... I think

    Single-phase electric power refers to the distribution of alternating current electric power using a system in which all the voltages of the supply vary in unison. Single-phase distribution is used when loads are mostly lighting and heating, with few large electric motors. A single-phase supply connected to an alternating current electric motor does not produce a revolving magnetic field; single-phase motors need additional circuits for starting, and such motors are uncommon above 10 or 20 kW in rating.

    In contrast, in a three-phase system, the currents in each conductor reach their peak instantaneous values sequentially, not simultaneously; in each cycle of the power frequency, first one, then the second, then the third current reaches its maximum value. The waveforms of the three supply conductors are offset from one another in time (delayed in phase) by one-third of their period.

    And that's good is it?

    Option 2

    Electrical service is transmitted in the form of alternating current whose magnitude and direction reverse cyclically (50 times per second). That is, if you put a voltage meter on a single phase AC line, (and magically slowed it down so that you could see it) the voltage would peak in one direction and then reverse polarity fifty times per second. Three phase service is just three single phase lines which are out of phase by one third of a cycle so that the individual voltages peak one after another in sequence.
    The main power transmission trunk lines that originate at power plants and substations are three phase, but branches off of the main lines often consist of only one conductor carrying single phase power.

    So one of these would probably solve any power problems then.

    Three phase power is better if you are running heavy equipment e.g. big welding machines, air compressors. For every day usage, single phase is totally adequate.
