HOW TO CONNECT A GENERATOR TO YOUR HOUSE BY USING A GENERATOR PANEL?

How to connect a generator to your house

WATCH THE VIDEO TO SEE HOW SIMPLE IS THE CONNECTION OF A POWER GENERATOR TO YOUR HOUSE.

By using the ATS CONECT panel you have the option to power your house using a simple portable generator. When the utility power fails, you will power your house in a few minutes. We provide a STEP-BY-STEP online tutorial that will guide you. But if you want more performances and you budget allows to purchase a stationary generator you can use the embedded relays. You will obtain a professional automatic start generator. You may use any style of engine gas, gasoline or diesel

WHAT IS A GENERATOR CONTROL PANEL?

 A generator control panel is used when you have to control a standby diesel generator. The controller embedded inside the generator control panel continuously monitors the utility power. The generator control panel manages, in a fully automatic way, the connection assignment of your load to utility power or generator.

The cabinet that hosts the generator control panel includes an automatic battery charger and a set of electronic boards. The logic that governs the generator control panel is conveniently tasked with driving the transfer switch. Depending on the complexity of the main controller we manufacture generator control panels for industrial use, commercial use, or special applications. As an option the generator control panel may include RS485 serial interface, remote control, monitoring systems, Modems, Internet connection, and so on. Available sizes on the market are normally in the range of 10-1000kVA. For small generators, ideal for home applications, Bernini Design manufactures cost-effective & user-friendly generator control panels. A generator control panel made by Bernini Design complies with NFPA110 and CAN/CSA-C282-M89 specifications.


WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AMF AND ATS PANELS?

 The AMF panel is a turnkey complete solution for a standby generator. The ATS panel requires additional equipment to accomplish a standby solution in case of a power outage. The AMF panel allows more granularity of applications. The use of contactors allows the highly sophisticated function of protection up to 200kVA. On the other hand, the ATS panel can serve high power systems over 1000kVA.

To be precise, the AMF panel does include an AMF controller that monitors the status of the mains or utility power if you will. It is fitted with all relays needed to interface with the engine and generator. It includes all power components including the changeover. The changeover can be made with contactors or a motorized transfer switch. The ATS panel does include only the transfer switch. This is usually made by using a motorized transfer switch. The ATS panel is far more simple than AMF panel but capable of switching extremely high levels of power. The typical configuration of a big power distribution system includes one main ATS panel (e.g. 2000kVA) and some AMF panels of lower power rating.


OUR HISTORY

Our group of companies is European generator control panel manufacturers of AMF /ATS / AGS generator control panels. On this page is an overview of our products together with all the necessary information.  Bernini Design started designing generator control panels in 1986. With over 30 years of experience, we manufactured over 100,000 automatic mains failure and automatic transfer switch units.  You can distinguish a Bernini Design panel by the following characteristics:

- UNCOMPARABLE RELIABILITY   -  STABLE SOFTWARE   -  USER FRIENDLY 

 

 

PANELS TYPOLOGY

If it is about industrial, commercial, telecom, or airport application, Bernini Design generator control panel manufacturers provide custom-made state-of-art solutions and up-to-code installations. Bernini Design manufactures all kinds of generator control panels: standard or custom made. Standard generator control panels are categorized according to final applications. For general purposes, generator control panels are generally directly fitted to the generator in order to provide basic functionality. These panels are normally fitted with a general-purpose generator controller able to provide a start, stop, and protection for the engine and generator.

INDUSTRIAL AMF PANELS

Here is an example of a generator control panel fitted with a BEK3 controller [1]. The panel controls the engine via the programmable input-output lines [4]. The BEK3 interfaces with switches fitted to the frame of the generator [3]. The generator control panel is connected to the alternator via a power cable of a suitable size. According to the mode of operation, the BEK3 controller drives the status of the internal power circuit breakers. The controller features MODBUS and CANBUS (SAEJ1939 compatible). You can use traditional standard engines by using the programmable input/output lines if CANBUS is not available. The panel includes miscellaneous equipment: a battery charger, electronic circuit boards,  power relays, and terminal blocks. The BeK3 controller is conveniently tasked with driving the contactors. These BEK3-based panels feature IP62 ingress protection.

THE PROPER AMF & ATS CONTROLLER

AMF generator control panels include a special controller committed to closer control of the utility power when the generator is connected in a standby configuration.  An ATS generator control panel is a stand-alone generator control panel that includes transfer switches to transfer the load to the generator and utility power.  This kind of generator control panel is a cost-effective solution in the case is connected to a generator with an embedded generator auto start module. The ATS generator control panel features only the power components committed to loading transfer. It includes simple electronic boards. A more complex generator control panel is required for parallel application for two or more generators. The generator control panels are made according to standard international specifications. Additional differences are noticeable when it is to industrial, commercial, or military applications for example. 

GENERATOR PANEL SUITABLE FOR GENERAL

PURPOSE APPLICATIONS

For general purpose applications, we recommend that you use the cost-effective series of generator control panels based on the BE242 controller. The generator control panels equipped with a BE242 controller are available in the range of 10 up to 200kVA.  This line of the generator control panel is the best product for commercial buildings, small factories, and the light industry. The controller is user-friendly and features the basic functions required from non-critical applications.
