    As a backup to my PV system, I recently purchased a used 5 KW
    generator. The price was right, I could not pass it up! After
    exercising it, I decided to look at the sine wave. Boy was it ugly.
    I thought all alernators produced a clean sine wave. Guess I'm wrong.
    In reading the manufacturer's manual,they say for solid state devices
    like home entertainment centers and HD TVs, I should use a line
    conditioner. Now this can be anything from a passive filter to a full
    UPS system with sine wave output. Gee, I just did that!

    My UPS is only 1 KVA so its out as a line conditioner. Besides I'd
    rasther have two independent systems. So the question is, does anyone
    have a proven LC circuit for line conditioning? I envision a pi low
    pass filter or something like that. Other approaches? Any help out
