Default Re: General Electric TAB 20 kw generator.

I'd bet that the exciting voltage was 125, but only because that seems to be a common one. Can't help you as far as how the exciter may have been driven, other than it may have been provided for separately from a buss in the power house.

Have to run it up to speed, start applying exciting current, and see what it takes to get full rated output. Then you'll know how big, and what voltage exciter you need.

Nice generator, by the way!
