Generator Option that Has Lower Total Harmonic Distortion

Question:

Hi, I read that one of the experts indicates this generator P08003 in the US, 8004 in Canada has 5 or less THD. Im getting confusing feedback on this, as my research at Firman found it to be 25 THD. This is important as I need to buy one at 5 or less THD in order to safely run my mini split heat pump. It is programmable, and the internal unit sensitive to power distortion, even though it only draws 1500W 220V @ 6.2A. Are you able to confirm which THD rating is correct?

Helpful Expert Reply:

The open frame style of generators like the # 333-P08003 have a total harmonic distortion of 25 percent. For a lower THD you would need to look into a cleaner power type of generator like the etrailer.com # 333-0003-2-0007 which has less than 3 percent TDH.

These 2 single generators can be ran parallel to provide 6,000 watts of starting power and 5,500 watts of running power. This is the highest rated inverter generator set we have available.

I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.
