so... if my 6 kw 240 v gennie needs 240^2/6kw = 9.6 ohms of inductive
reactance in series, ie l = 1/(9.6x2pix60) = 0.276 mh...

and it needs 6kw/240v = 25 amp wire...

wow. have you tried this? how much wire do we need to wind around
how much rebar or galvanized pipe, and how much does the coil cost?
