20. Close all external load contactors between the generator sets and load. Generator sets are now operating with load applied.
21. Observe upper display for voltage and total current readings and the lower display for kW and kVAR readings on all
TQG units. Make very small adjustments to the VOLTAGE and FREQUENCY potentiometers to maintain balanced
reading of total amperes, %kW, and kVAR across all units in parallel.
22. Pressing POWER METER on GSC keypad, periodically compare kW and kVAR readings on lower display of all
generator sets. If readings are not within plus or minus 10% of one another, notify next higher level of maintenance.
Removal from Parallel Operation
If necessary to move a generator set that has been operating in parallel with another generator set,
shut down all generator sets prior to removing load cables or ground. Failure to comply can cause
injury or death to personnel by electrocution.
Before removing generator set from parallel operation, make sure that load does not exceed full load
rating of generator set(s) remaining on the line. Failure to observe this caution can result in damage
to generator set.
