Floating vs Bonded Neutrals
Hi All - I am almost done my DJC rebuild - I am rebuilding the transfer pump now. I have my summary written, but the photos are on a different computer, and I have to have the story catch up with the text. I will post soon.
I have a question about floating neutral generators and it begins here.
I am presently renovating (yet another) room in the home - a room that contains the panel box. I will be adding a Siemens 12 circuit generator panel, a panel that transfers the neutral and is for use with "Neutral Bonded to Frame" generators, such as my DJC and Lincoln Ranger 8 welder.
However, I also have two Kawasaki portables (GA 1400 and GA 3200) that are labelled "Floating Neutral". After reading the requirements of the electrical codes, these generators are not intended to be used with the panel I am chosing. My question is: can these two small generators be converted (and relabelled) to be "Neutral Bonded to Frame" generators? Is it as simple as connecting the neutral to the ground terminal? More difficult? Impossible?
Your opinion and advice are appreciated.
