Automatic changeover Switch using Contactors:
This diagram shows how to make an automatic changeover switch using contactors. In this circuit diagram, we use a simple 2 magnetic contactors, a power generator, and a single-phase energy meter. This circuit is very easy to make. If you want to make a good connection like our diagram you can check our youtube video at the below link. Make sure you have a good idea about electrical wiring and electricity, then follow our diagram and make a good circuit and use it.

Components used to make the Automatic changeover Switch using Contactors:
A magnetic contactor is an electromagnetic switching device. It is generally used for controlling three-phase motors. The operation of a magnetic contactor is similar to that of a relay, but a relay is used for low-power or low-voltage connections, and a magnetic contactor is used for high-power or high-voltage connections. As soon as the supply is applied to the magnetic contactor coil, its normally open contacts are closed and normally closed contacts are opened and the associated devices are also operated. This is how a magnetic contactor works.
02. Power Generator:
An electric generator is a type of electrical device that converts mechanical energy or power into electrical energy or power. However, dynamo generally refers to generators only. The first generator built was called a dynamo. This electrical device makes this conversion using the principle of kinetic electromagnetic energy generation. According to Farad’s principle of electromagnetic induction, a dynamic electromagnetic induction is induced in a conductor when it passes through a magnetic flux.
A Single-Phase Energy Meter is a sort of Watt-Hour meter. It consists of two Electromagnets. Single-Phase Energy Meter is also Popularly known as a watt-hour meter. One Magnet is called the shunt magnet Ml which is Mounted with a Pressure coil. The Pressure coil is a long coil Made of fine Copper wire which is connected across the Supply line. Single-phase energy meters are suitable for measuring single-phase AC current frequencies of 50/60 Hz, which are used for fixed indoor installations.
