ATS and Switchgear

Vital Components of Emergency Power Systems

An ATS unit is a critical component in emergency power applications. The purpose of an ATS is to monitor and sense a loss of utility power while initiating a signal to the generator to start and run. In a matter of seconds, the ATS will transfer power from a dead utility bus to generator providing power to the load. Many applications require one or more ATS units to ensure critical loads receive power in a timely manner.

Paralleling Switchgear is a combination of protection, metering, control and switching elements acting as an integrated system to allow multiple generators to synchronize and connect to a common bus. The frequency, voltage, phase angle and phase rotation of all the sources must match within prescribed limits before they can be paralleled. Some applications require two or more generators to parallel with the Utility.

Regularly schedule services can ensure system reliability.

These types of ancillary equipment are often overlooked but are a vital component in an emergency power system and require regular inspections and maintenance services to ensure they will perform as required.

The critical nature of an emergency power system demands minimum downtime.
