Understanding Home Standby Generators:

 

An average home may use more than a hundred electrical appliances and devices to provide convenience, comfort and security. It is, therefore, essential that we install a backup home generator to prepare for a power outage. A residential generator has major advantages over a portable gen set- automatic start, permanent fixture, more power, cleaner fuel (natural gas or propane), low running costs and all-weather operation. Standby power systems start automatically within seconds after a home's electricity goes out and ensure a continuous electrical supply.

 

A Transfer Switch immediately senses when power is interrupted and transfers power generation to generator. It also senses when power is restored and transfers the load back to the utility source and signals the generator to shut down. The power generator is installed outdoors and linked directly to home's permanent fuel supply. 

 

Typical Installation:

 

A residential standby generating system typically has three basic elements: a generator, a transfer switch and a service-entrance breaker.

  1. Generator - Produces electricity for essential or selected systems like cooling, heating, refrigeration, security and lighting. Your backup needs, simple or more extensive, determine the size and output of the unit.
  2. Transfer Switch - Immediately senses when power is interrupted and transfers power generation responsibility to the generator. Senses when power is restored and transfers the load back to the utility source and signals the generator to cool off and shut down.
  3. Service Entrance Breaker - Provides protection to your transfer switch, internal breakers and circuits and generator due to electrical strikes and power surges
