Back-up Power

Back-up Power

A standby generator is a back-up electrical system that operates automatically when a power outage occurs. Within seconds of a utility outage an automatic transfer switch senses power loss, commands the generator to start, and transfers the electrical load to the generator. The standby generator begins supplying power to the circuits. After utility power returns, the automatic transfer switch transfers the electrical load back to the utility and signals the standby generator to shut off. It then returns to standby mode where it awaits the next outage.
