I have a 3 phase 15KW generator with four wires. I want to use it as a standby generator for my house. My house uses 1 phase 220 volts on two wires (no ground as the house is quite old). I have a 3 wire transfer switch. I was wondering if I could connect the generator neutral to my mains neutral permanently and just switch the live wires. I know I should avoid this but is it really dangerous.
- I am going to have a problem with balancing the loads
- the generator is not branded i.e it made with a 1.6 litre Toyota engine (I think).
Now that its clear that I should have a solid neutral, (thanks longneck and bcworkz) is there anything wrong with implementing the following plan
The reason for using these devices is that I already have them.
