Re: Genset??

It's a generic term to include portable, as well as stationary means, to generate electricity; the key common component being a combustion engine of some sort as the prime mover.

The Honda 2000 is a popular portable (small) gasoline-powered generator.

In my case, I have a permanently installed diesel generator. My system includes a change-over switch to go from shore-based 120V to self-generated 120V.

A generator may produce 12V DC, or may produce 120/240V, etc.
