I do not believe this model of Xantrex I/C can be current
limited or de-rated specifically on the charge side, like some other models can. Ideally you would have the option to de-rate the charge side to 60A or so in order to run it off a genset. I believe that unit can be set for reduced power share and that may solve your problem
