Automatic Transfer Switch

Automatic Transfer Switch Installation

Equipment used to switch between the two power sources (typically the energy grid and diesel generator) is called a transfer switch. Transfer switches are controlled either automatically or manually, hence the name Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS), or manual transfer switch (MTS), with automatic being the popular choice.

Automatic and manual transfer switches are installed to the customers switchboard or dedicated ATS switchboard panel and integrated to the generator and grid power supply.

Automatic Transfer Switches
If you need a generator solution to backup power when the energy grid goes offline, look no further than Micron Group’s range of Automatic Transfer Switches. Our team will design supply and install a generator and ATS solution which meets your load requirement, is reliable, most importantly, operates effectively when you need it most.

Why Micron Group Automatic Transfer Switches?
For Mission Critical Applications Micron Group Automatic Transfer Switches are the industry standard offering rugged construction and proven performance assuring many years of reliability. We only choose and install ATS systems and controllers from leading and trusted manufacturers such as Schneider, NHP Socomec and ABB. We program our logic controllers for precise safe and reliable high-speed transfer of loads between alternate sources of power. When combined with a programmable microprocessor controller, keypad and LCD display, they offer the most advanced method of transferring all types of loads.

Manual Transfer Switch

Manual Transfer Switch Installation

In budget conscious installations a Manual Transfer Switch may be an option if the connected load is not mission critical.

Manual transfer switches as the name implies lack the smarts and control options assigned to automatic transfer switch units. A manual transfer switch requires an operator to manually start the generator and then physically switch power (or load) from one supply to another. Each individual application is unique and for this reason we design the system according to individual client requirements.

Load Banks

Load Banks

Equipment used to test diesel generators, and other electrical power sources by simulating an electrical load is called a Load Bank.

Internally a load bank is comprised of rows of resistor elements connected and controlled by contactors and relays usually governed by a PLC (programmable logic microprocessor controller). Load banks allow for a staged electrical ‘dummy load’ to be connected to the power source, allowing testing of the electric power source without connecting it to its normal operating load. During testing a load bank is connected to the output of a power source, such as an electric generator in place of its usual load.

Resistive Load Banks

Resistive Load Bank Installation

Micron Group engineers often design systems coupled with resistive load banks. Taking power from the generator in the same way heaters would, a resistive load bank has a power factor (cos Φ) of unity or one.

These testing devices work extremely well when testing generators and are generally used for general purpose testing of generators. Resistive load banks convert diesel generator power or electricity into heat using the inbuilt resistors as load. Electrical power drawn from resistive load banks is specified in kW and referred to as Real Power. Electric fans are used to dissipate the enormous heat load keeping the unit cool.

Reactive Load Banks

Reactive Load Bank Installation

While Resistive type load banks operate on a unity power factor and work very well in testing generators, they do not test the generator for full apparent power in kVA, which is what a Reactive Load Bank is designed to do.

Reactive load Banks closely replicate the type of load a diesel generator experiences during typical use, which could have a power factor of 0.8 to one. This load is often referred to as kVA (kilo volt amperes) and kVAR (kilo volt-ampere reactive), making use of large Inductors to achieve the reactive load. Micron Group’s Inductive Load Bank Systems closely resemble a typical load found in commercial and industrial buildings, and as such is a more precise load. Combined with resistors our inductive load banks have inbuilt inductors, these load banks also have high KVA Capacities for larger applications.

Integration With BMS Modbus HLI

Integration with BMS Modbus HLI

Micron Group Engineers design Generator, ATS and Load Bank systems as either stand alone, or completely automated systems which can be integrated to the buildings BMS intelligent computer management system.

Our generators are equipped with Modbus HLI (amongst other high level interface protocols) which seamlessly integrate to your BMS system for a comprehensive graphical interface, ensuring end users are kept always informed on the standby system status, either onsite or remotely to your smart device.

Generator Connection Points (GCP)

Generator Connection Points (GCP)

A great way to ensure a fast and reliable connection to your site is to install a generator connection point. This allows for the connection to a temporary generator or load bank.

Fitted either internally or externally, Micron Group Generator Connection Points facilitate the fast and reliable connection of standby systems using flexible leads from the building’s main switchboard, generator and /or load banks.
Generator connection points allow for testing and repair works to be undertaken easily, without the expense of permanently installing a generator or load bank. Widely used in all industry sectors such as health, defence, education, and manufacturing connection points make a cost effective, fast, and efficient way to supply emergency power without the capital cost.

Whether it be for large manufacturing plant, commercial building or a small office solution, our electrical engineers can size, design, and assist with any standby power requirement for all business types.

Generator Testing and Maintenance

Generator Testing and Maintenance

Micron Group technicians will test your standby generator system to ensure the generator, automatic transfer switch, and load bank control system is connected correctly, functioning as intended and most importantly operating efficiently.

Our engineers are certified and highly trained ensuring your standby generator system is tested and maintained to the highest standard, we will clearly outline all inefficiencies and repairs required for optimal performance. Once testing is complete you will receive a comprehensive service log for review.

Generator Refuelling

Generator Refuelling

Refuelling can often be a difficult and overlooked task. Keeping generators in an optimal condition and running without interruption is often neglected.

Micron Group offer generator refuelling services to ensure you experience no downtime. We refuel diesel generators on site, ensuring your system remains operational at a critical time when the energy grid is not available. Micron Group’s skilled technicians will attend your premises to refuel your diesel generator safely and reliably, either as a one-off, or as part of scheduled maintenance.
