There are notable differences between emergency and standby generators within the National Electrical Code. These differences affect how engineers design the systems in which each type of genset is applied. Engineers must understand these differences, and understand the requirements, considerations, and specifications when designing generator power systems for many types of mission-critical facilities.
• Genset classifications
• Genset sizing
• Distribution requirements
• Fuel requirements.
