Default Re: Engine for a generator

Maybe you could try a locomotive style drivetrain.
They use a large diesel gennerator to power the electric motor driven wheels.

They use the throttle on the generator to control wheelmotor's power and speed. Very simple system with minimal circutry to engineer.
