The last day of meteorological summer was heralded with low cloud, rain and a brisk wind. Let’s hope it is not a sign of things to come as we move towards winter.
Scratch was at the club to fit an extraction fan to the generator hut to help with cooling. He also planned to fit a small solar panel to charge the generator battery. Whilst installing the fan it was found that the output from the generator was 293V. After adjusting the voltage regulator and idle speed of the engine this was reduced to 247V. An added bonus to this was the noisy fluorescent lights in the clubhouse were silenced.
