Solving Critical Generator Problems with Neutral Grounding Resistors

Case study demonstrates how using neutral grounding resistors prepared mission-critical facility for an emergency electrical situation.

A requirement for every hospital, emergency power generators must be operational in 10 seconds or less when electric utility power is lost. If a backup generator fails, the lives of hospital patients are most certainly at risk. Proper grounding is essential to the generator’s ability to function, but this important detail can be overlooked if not carefully evaluated.
