Arduino based Generator Controller and Regulator installed.

Today I completed the installation of the Arduino based Generator Controller / Alternator Regulator, and I will say it is looking sharp.

Just in time for our departure at the end of the month.  Now starting the generator is just a matter of  'pressing a button'.  It starts, ramp up slowly,  does the 3-step regulation things, and slowly ramps down before stopping.  But more important, it maximizes every minute of run time to get the most power out of the engine possible.

Tonight after I got the panel installed I did a 'test run', turning the generator on and off.  Even Kristi stopped and gave it an admiring look  (Well, that is MY story and I am sticking with it)
