HOW TO SELECT AND SET CIRCUIT BREAKERS FOR GENERATORS
Generators differ from other electrical power sources in their ability to withstand overloads and fault current. These differences should be respected when selecting and setting circuit breakers to protect generators.
In the guide that you can view below, the parameters of generators and circuit breakers are explained, as well as which should be considered when selecting and setting equipment. In the document you will be able to view a five step selection process, as well as a setting guide with accompanying graphs and tables.
Some of the topics discussed include why generator protection should be given special consideration, a comparison of short circuit fault current withstand for various equipment, parameters for selection and setting of circuit breakers to protect a generator, as well as a selection chart to assist with selecting the best possible product for your requirements.
