I need an auto-transfer switching control diagram for use in main-emergency power supply system. Can anyone advise me?
You can refer to Changeover device to DIN VDE 0108 – Power systems and safety power supply in buildings.
Main switch Q1 is closed first, followed by main switch Q1.1 (auxiliary supply).
Phase monitor K1 is energized via the main supply and immediately energizes contactor relay K2. Normally closed contact K2/21–22 blocks the circuit. Contactor Q12 (auxiliary supply) and normally open contact K2/13-14 closes the circuit of contactor Q11, which energizes and switches the mains supply on the load. Contactor Q12 is also interlocked against mains supply contactor Q11 via normally closed contact Q11/22-21.
good day sir
Can i use a contactor to connect automatic changeover transfer switch?
Yes, Q11 and Q12 in above circuit diagrm are contactor.
I Have Gen-set and would like make a ATS between Main line and generator, so I would like to send me a simple Diagram and colored pictures for each item and how connected them by diagram wires.
Thanks too much
I want to use this electrical diagram to design some electrical panels. Thank you for this simple and good diagram. I will add also two delay relays to connect the main/ the generator delayed.
I have one question, appreciate if you can help me.
I will use this ATS to feed 3-phase loads but also 1-phase loads. How can we connect the single phase loads to the neutral and earth? If we connect the loads to both neutrals/N and earth/PE (mains+auxiliar) this means we connect the main N to the auxiliary N and main PE to the auxiliary PE . Is this correct and safe to do?
Connecting the main and auxiliary in parallel is not allowed but to connect the N and PE in parallel is allowed?
Another idea would be to use 4-pole contactors (to disconnect also the neutral) but unfortunately our approved supplier have only 3-pole contactors.
Generally in electrical system with multiple neutral-to-ground connections, (e.g. the main and Standby/Emergency power supplies) the neutrals of the two systems must be separated to assure proper ground fault current sensing. When the separated ground fault in two systems is mandatory, the incomplete sensing and nuisance tripping can be eliminated by 4 Pole transfer switch application, which will also classify the Standby/Emergency supply as a separately derived system.
On the other hand some standards such as Canadian Electrical Code does not require, nor is it general practice to provide additional ground fault protection where the essential loads are energized from a separately derived power system, such as an engine-driven generator set. However according to some recommendation no ground fault protection is applied to any emergency system where the capacity of a generator is 500 kW or less.
This is a trade-off in possible electrical equipment damage, in order to keep the essential circuits in operation, as decided by an operator. Therefore if individual ground fault protection is your concern you shall use 4 pole transfer switch for suitable neutral/ground separations.
this is wonderful explantory

I Have Dessile generator and would like make a ATS between Main line and generator, so I would like to send me a simple Diagram and colored pictures for each item and how connected them by diagram wires.
I Thanks too much
Hello sir, I will appreciate if u can help me with circuit diagram, with contactors, ac relay, dc relay , seconds timer, hours timer that automatically changeover to auxilliary and main source , and can also start/ stop the generator without torching the circuit manually,, sir I will very much sir, pls clear and explainable diagram thanks.
Please refer to below simple diagram.
Pl.change the name of f2 is over load relay/ current setting relay.
This is a quite good circuit.
I used a similar circuit in a cubicle design and I have been asked for my colleagues to remove one relay that performs the crossed interlock between the contactors.
Regarding the first circuit in the thread: Is there any reason I should keep Q12 N/C auxiliary contact in the circuit that energizes Q11 coil? Apparently the use of N/O and N/C contacts of K2 would prevent both coils to be energized at the same time.
It is considered for safe interlock against any contactors manual operation via dip switch that provided for alternative operation on magnetic relays. Also it is an additional safety for overcome to some cases such as K2 failure and so on.
why is it that generator power are not good for some machines?
PLEASE HOW CAN I USE A 3POLE RELAY THAT HAS L1, L2 AND L3, WITH T1, T2 AND T3 AS A CHANGEOVER SWITCH FOR A SINGLE PHASE POWER INPUT FROM GRID AND A SINGLE PHASE POWER INPUT FROM GENERATOR? PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME WITH CIRCUIT DIAGRAM AND SCHEMATICS. AM REALLY GRATEFUL FOR YOUR HELP AND KNOWLEDGE SHARING TO US. YOU CAN MAIL ME ON ekehemmanuelchijioke@gmail, with the needed response. i await ur kind reply
Same logic could be used as below diagram.

Hello.. I need control circuit for star delta its timer will be take 220-240v.. Contacotor 380-415v..
Pls how can I use only power to make an automatic change over switch using timers, contactors, relays. And nt to involve electronics. Pls I nid an explanation with a schematic diagram. Tnx.
You can refer to answer no.1
I have a diesel generator with deepsea 5110 module, I need ATS panel diagram! I have 2 magnetic contractor, 2 AC relays, 2 timers, one phase monitering relay. .waiting for your kind response.
dear sir, i humble your help;
i have a three phase 440v ac generator as the main supply and i want to connect a single phase 20kva ac generator as an auxiliary for air conditioners, base radios and lighting systems once the main engine is off.
so how i can use diesel on and diesel off relays and contactors to connect them automatically as a change over switch when the main diesel engine 400v ac is off???????
I need a 3200 A ATS contactors base circuit diagram .
what software tool can I use in sketching and simulating the circuit diagram for the ATS you mentioned above.
