Is your generator is automated or manual if so do you know the circuits?..

Answer / yuvi

Honestly, this question does not make any sense. However, I
will try to answer to the best of my understanding.

1) I don’t have a generator.
2) Difference between manual and automated generator is
that in a manual start generator, we will have to manually
start it. In an automatic start generator, a circuit senses
that the power has failed and starts the generator
automatically using a small battery powered motor similar
to the ones that start your car. The sensing circuit can be
of a wide variety. It can be a magnetic relay or an
electronic circuit depending on the area of application.

Answer / tapas

in both Auto and Manual cases circuit diagram can be found in the Drawing of Sync panel/AMF panel. Its a selector switch by which user can select either Auto mode or Manual mode.
DG start and stop circuit has two ways to operate which can be found on drawing.
1.Manual Mode: In this mode push button start and push button stop operates DG. i.e. when power fails DG can't be started Automatically. Operator should start the DG manually.

2. Automode: PLC senses absence of Power and commands DG to start.

Its very simple
Take an 230v auxillary contactor with 1NO POINT and 1NC POINT
One single phase connect at one side NO POINT and other end connect to contactor A1(NO VOLT COIL).A2NEUTRAL directly connected.
Positive (+) supply24 v connected at NC POINT one side and other end connected at generator starting switch .
When EB powersupply is there the contactor is on.
When EB supply cut through NC POINT the positive supply passing to the switch so the generator is on.
Its very cheap.
