I have a 36 KW infrared heater 240 Volts has 3 hot lines,what size the portable generator I need and amps also?
Answer by Frank
That sounds like a GIANT heater. it would take 15 amps of 240v if 36kw is the electrical wattage. You would probably want a 5000w generator.

You need a 40 kW or 50 kW generator.
this is 150 amps. You will need a plug and socket rated at that current (and I don’t know of any) and wire rated at 150 amps, such as #3 AWG.
