Cummins Generator Sets in Parallel

Two Cummins Diesel Generators in Parallel in Machine Room

Two parallel cabinets and one control cabinet are equipped to control the diesel generator sets. One is for prime, another is for standby.

When the power of the electrical equipment exceeds the power supplied by one unit, the second generator set starts automatically. When the total power is reduces, the second generator set stops automatically, because the parallel cabinet is automatic parallel cabinet.

what’s that batt doing on the deck by # 2 ? I’m not too keen on the auto start.
