A Generator HTS/ATS Can Provide Power When One Leg Of Power Is Lost
[ad#block]Question: I am in a building in Summit county where there are no known power outages. I am assuming there is three phase coming in to our building by the looks of the transformer outside. We have a backup generator which is a Generac Elite series that is supposed to supply backup power for half of the building. Earlier today the power went out in 1/3 of the building.
