Designing Generator Systems

When designing generator systems, engineers must ensure that the generators and the building electrical systems they support are appropriate for the application. Many questions must be addressed before starting the generator system design. Most of these questions are related to the application and the site operating conditions, which drives the selection of the different generator system components and their characteristics.

The answers to these questions will help engineers make decisions regarding generator sizing, loading sequence, paralleling, fuel storage, switching scenarios, and many other criteria.
