Grounding of Alternate Power

When engine generator sets are used as an alternate source of power (i.e., emergency or standby power), it is essential that they be properly grounded and that associated transfer switches be properly selected. This is necessary to assure safety of personnel, protection of equipment, reliable ground-fault sensing and continuity of power to electrical loads.
