specifically, running electronics on a portable generator. After Irene blew through this weekend, we ran into problems at my fire station. Our power was out, but we still needed to function. We're considering a decent size generator for the lighting in a few areas, heat in the winter if possible, and communications i.e. base radio and pc with internet. What hazards are there with portable generators regarding electronics and how do we mitigate them? I checked inverter generators but they don't seem to have the wattage. Is there something we should be looking for to even out the power to make it safe for electronics?
