Hello fellas

Recently I have had a customer complaint of a protector qs not running after power failure. However. Running log states it was infact running. Now does this mean 100 percent operational or just that the engine ran.

One other question. Is there an easy way for me to simulate a loss of power and get it to run plus generate power without having to call switches in Edmonton and get them to cut power at this switch.. {cn backup gen)

If the log said it was running, it would have been running, however the generator doesn't monitor transfer switch position, so it's possible it ran but didn't transfer...

The transfer switch should have a main disconnect, just shut that off to simulate an outage.
