Generator Control Panels
All You Need To Know About Generator Control Panels
What is the fundamental purpose of a generator control panel in an industrial facility? To state simply, a generator control panel is used to automatically start and stop a generator’s motor. This control panel employs an automatic transfer switch which engages and disengages the starter. This automatic transfer switch also tells the generator when it needs to run. So, their basic purpose is to monitor the functioning of the motor in a generator. While doing so, they use a series of switches and sensors, which ensure that the generator does not go overboard in heat and does not speed up or slow down at the wrong times.
A generator control panel offers the highest degrees of safety to generators. These control panels protect, monitor, and automate your generators and also allow the safe control of generators, even remotely. Numerous factors may cause overheating of generators like fatigue, weather conditions, aged components, and wear and tear of parts. If such overheating goes unnoticed, there may be some serious malfunctions that might affect the safety of the plant. Hence, a generator control panel provides maximum safety to the functioning of generators. Advanced generator control panels also offer to monitor additional features of generators like wattage, voltage, amperage, frequency, etc.

Some Notable Features Of Generator Control Panels
Some generator control panels having remote functionality features, whereas others can be automated or handled manually. How do automated or remote generator control panels function? These type of generator control panels utilize sensors which help them to detect changes in temperature or other parameters and engage immediately. Another advantage of having a generator control panel is that when you integrate a transfer switch with it, it will ensure a continuous flow of electricity even during instances of a power outage. How exactly do generator control panels function? Consider the following.
Any piece of industrial equipment is prone to overheating, slowing down, speeding up, changes in performance due to a lot of factors. In the case of generators, such varying changes consist of an electrical signal. The intelligent processing of these electric signals in the case of generators can help us to control and monitor the performance of the machine. That’s exactly where a generator control panel comes into the picture. Like mentioned already, generator control panels come with sensors that can detect changes in several parameters like heat and speed and generate signals. Advanced and modern generators have been designed to detect changes in a variety of parameters.
How does the transfer switch in a generator control panels function? An automatic transfer switch or ATS ensures the continuity of electrical power. When an ATS detects a power outage due to the local grid failure, it immediately signals the control panel to switch on the generator. The generator control panel starts the generator by using an automatic starter. After the generator reaches optimum speed, the starter gets disengaged, the ATS switches to the generator power, and you are back to business. Every industrial facility needs this system in place to ensure mission-critical continuity.
Generator control panels have a wide range of applications and are used across several sectors. Every facility or plant requires back up or emergency power, and hence they are implemented wherever possible. Depending upon the power and electric flow in your industrial facility, you can choose an ideal generator control panel for yourself. Our team at Spike Electric will be happy to assist you to select the best choice to fit your needs.
