Re: Designing a generator "locker" - A theoretical Exercise
I like the thought that you want to make something with regards to others(and your) noise pollution . And I'm sure you will come up with a solution . There is (was) a gen. set for sale called a Panda ,it came in it's own sound proof case . I'm not sure if it is water cooled . My set up is not what you are talking about , but the end result I think is what you want . My engine is a Yanmar 2qm 15 , I installed a regulator bypass system that has a reostat .(it also turns of when not in use).
And a high out put alternator . So in a sense my engine is my gen . set .
ADD. the Panda 4200 ECO was the the one I was talking about it is a permanent mount type, with water cooling so not really what you are talking about. However the sound case looks nice .
It would seem to me that if you are using a current type genset(like the Honda) they are fairly quiet , however some sound proofing would be nice .I'm thinking a fold up arrangement that would cover on side by side and on top , that would promote air flow. Next time I anchor I hope I'm next to you !
