    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Applies to the installation of electricity generating sets that are driven by internal combustion engines, and which are used for the supply of fixed electrical installations in buildings or items of electrical equipment.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out the minimum safety requirements related to the use of generating sets for the supply of electricity at voltages normally exceeding 32 V a.c. or 115 V d.c.The Standard applies to electricity generating sets that are driven by internal combustion engines, and which are used for the supply of fixed electrical installations in buildings or items of electrical equipment.This Standard does not -(a) set out performance and constructional requirements for generating sets; or(b) specifically apply to specialized automatic sources of supply, e.g. no-break systems or generating sets belonging to Electricity Generating or Supply Authorities.NOTES:1. Requirements for the performance and construction of transportable generating sets up to 25 kW are given in AS 2790.2. Requirements for the design, installation and operation of emergency power supplies in hospitals are given in AS 3009.3. Attention is drawn to the fact that some Regulatory Authorities have requirements for limitation of noise and pollution generation.
