Generator location and connections review
Before installing a Backup Power Generator it is important that the installation location is properly selected. An ideal generator installation location is driven by multiple factors such as:
- Proper ventilation to ensure that heat dissipation happens properly
- Distance from the load distribution center to optimize the cabling requirements
- Proper arrangement for earthing
- Optimum area around the genset for maintenance.

Generator and allied equipment
Simply buying a standalone genset is not enough. Systems are required to ensure that the genset is properly integrated into the electrical system. This requires switching, control and monitoring equipment that helps achieve this purpose. If your installation has more than one genset, a synchronizing system is required to ensure that the gensets are able to operate simultaneously.
