Default Stewart & Stevenson tm-4600 conversion from 3 phase possibilities

Wondering if possible to convert to use as farm back-up gen (house-barn-shop)

400 hertz
115/200 volts, 3 phase, 4 wire
173 amperes at 0.8 pf
AC O/P 60 KVA

I know nothing about this so any info would be good

Thanks

The problem with this set is going to be frequency. There is no (practical) way to convert it from 400 cycles to 60 cycles.

The engine might be useful for something, but the generator is really only useful for military applications.

Only application beyond military for 400hz is incandescent lighting, we used to sell them to shrimpers for lighting. Find a shrimper that needs a big gen, trade for lots of shrimp
