Paralleling Industrial Generators
Paralleling Industrial GeneratorsFacilities that use multiple generators often operate them in a parallel configuration. The first step to understanding paralleling is recognizing basic generator control functions. When generators are operated in parallel, the load is usually distributed evenly throughout the online generators. When the load increases, all generators equally increase their output to accept the load. When operating generators in parallel, the capability is additive (2 kW parallel with 2 kW = 4 kW capability). This month's article reviews the basics of industrial generator paralleling including upgrading and designing new parallel applications, paralleling generators without advanced controls, and connecting generators with paralleling capabilities.  Click below to continue:
