Generator Transfer Switch Wiring:
This diagram shows how to connect the generator transfer switch wiring. In this circuit diagram, we just use a power generator, a 3-pin power socket, 2 plugs, a DP MCB ( Double Pole Miniature Circuit Breaker ), six SP MCB ( Single Pole Miniature Circuit Breaker ), an automatic transfer or changeover switch. This diagram is very easy to connect. If you want to make this circuit easily please check our youtube video in the below link for more information.

Components used to make the Generator Transfer Switch Wiring:
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.
02. 3-Pin Socket:
A Power Socket is a Device to Which Electrical Devices can be Connected to Receive the Electric Current Required For Their Operation. Connected by a System of Cables to a Power Source, Usually, an Electricity Generation Facility operated by an energy Production company, generally has no moving parts. Instead, it contains metal strips that make contact with the prongs of an Electric plug inserted into the socket. It is Through these Contacts That the Electric current is Transmitted. Electrical Devices Which Connect to a Power Source Through a Power Socket are Considered to be Portable Because they can easily be Connected and Disconnected From the Power Source.
DP MCB In Two Pole MCB, switching & protection is affected in phases and the neutral. A Double Pole or DP Switch is a Switch that Controls two Circuits at the same time. In terms of Residential Switching, this Normally means it Switches the live and Neutral at the same time. In Layperson Terms, Double Pole switches or DP Switches are Exclusively Designed to Control two Different Electrical Circuits at the same time, which allows the Appliances to Isolate in a safe and reliable manner. Fan or light Combinations and Medical Equipment are some of the many applications for DP Electrical Switches.
04. SP MCB:
In single-pole MCB, Switching & Protection is Affected in only one Phase. Single phase supply to break the phase only. A single Pole breaker is Typically used with 120-volt Circuits, 15-20 amps. They are constructed with one Hot Wire and one Neutral wire. An SP switch is the most basic General-Purpose switch that you use to Control a light or another device from one location. These Switches have two Brass-Colored screw Terminals Connected to the hot Power source wires. Pole refers to the number of Circuits Controlled by the Switch SP Switches Control only one Electrical Circuit.
Change over switch is a medium of line transfer that is used in industry. Every industry has a supply line using change-over switches to supply power. A Changeover Switch is an Electrical Switch That Allows a load to be Changed from one Electrical Source to Another and vice Versa, Either Manually or Automatically. A Changeover Switch is specially made to transfer a house’s electricity from the Normally used Commercial Power supply grid to a more local Generator when a power Outage Occurs.
Two-Pole Means That the Device Plug is not Earthed and it Normally Has Two Pins That Transmit Electricity. Originally, all Electrical Devices were Fitted with Two-pole Plugs, Which Means that the Devices were not earthed and that all main Sockets were Constructed for 2-Pole plugs. Two-pin Plugs Consist of two flat or Round Pins with one Called “hot” or “live” and the Other Called “neutral”. When Connected to an Electric Circuit, the Current Flows From the live Pins Through The Copper Conductor and into the Device.
