Verify that the total rating for all of the breakers used in the load center does not exceed the rating of the transfer switch. and selected light circuits. After transferring the load back to the normal source. the rating of the load center circuit breaker must match the rating of the existing breaker in the main panel. The ATS continuously monitors the normal source and transfers the load back when the normal source returns and stabilizes. When the normal source fails. or only the essential loads such as the furnace. Identify the breakers for those circuits in the main distribution panel. the breakers can be moved from the main panel to the load center. Verify that the generator set and transfer switch are adequately rated to supply all of the selected loads. When the emergency source reaches acceptable levels and stabilizes. If the main distribution panel uses the same type of breakers. well pump. the ATS transfers the electrical load to the emergency source. The normal source is typically utility power. Figure 1-1 shows a typical installation block diagram. Because the size and number of circuit breakers required will vary with each application. Loads.
