What Generator Changeover Switches Do
A changeover switch for generator units is an electrical switch that transfers a load of power from the power grid it gets its main supply of power from to a backup generator. It acts as an intermediary electrical relay between power sources and your building’s generator. This process is started whenever there is a power outage or failure of the power grid. Generator changeover switches are usually installed at the same location where backup generators are located, allowing the generator to supply temporary electrical power in the event of the utility power source failing.
How Generator Changeover Switches Work
The main breaker inside either a manual or automatic generator changeover switch transfers your utility power source to a standby generator. Utility power sources and generators cannot be connected at the same time; this is done to stop the utility power from back-feeding into the generator and also stop the generator power from back-feeding into the utility lines.
Generator changeover switches contain multiple circuits. Power loads can be assigned to specific circuits so they can be used for certain applications. However, some power generators aren’t big enough to provide power to every circuit at the same time. If this is the case, using either a manual or automatic generator changeover switch makes it very simple to switch between different loads. Whenever a power outage occurs, having a commercial or domestic generator changeover switch on your premises will make it much easier to manage your power usage and maximise how effective your generator is.
