Whole house generator install without a transfer switch
I have a 22KW General generator (70422) I am planning on using without a transfer switch. I have wired up my 200 amp panels with mechanical interrupts so the generator can't be tied to the power company. Because I am not using a transfer switch I will have to go out and manually start the generator when the power goes out. Once the generator is running and supplying power I can go back to my panels and operate the mechanical interrupts to turn off the main preakers and then turn on the generator breaker to the panel. I am havig an issue with the wiring. The main 2-2-2-4 wire is self explanitory for where it hooks up. I am having a problem with the charging for the battery. I see where the blue terminal is for fused 120 VAC for battery charger. Can I just run the 120VAC hot lead to this terminal and hook the ground and neutral wies to their respective points?
I did call General and asked about the battery charger wiring and they told me their policy is that all of their generaors needed to operate with an Automatic Transfer Switch. I suppose that would be great if I could use the switch but my circumstances will not work for the switch.
Lemmeno what you think about powering up thw battery charger without the transfer switch.
