I have an uncle in the electricity generation and distribution business - he knows his stuff - I think you do too.
An old electric clock will work just fine.
I can still use it for comparison to the grid if it isn't accurate, but if it is accurate then:
If a minute on the clock comes faster than a real minute, then I need to slow generator down. If a minute doesn't come as fast as a real minute, then I need to speed the generator up.
If I am accurate to one second then I am accurate to 1hz (which I think is around 1.6%)
Thanks JOED, now how can I make a cheap Meggar tester?
I'm not too concerned about this as they seem to be reasnobly priced.
