Distribution System

Many sites will not need an elaborate distribution system. However, for larger campuses with buildings spread out, connecting each load sharing output to a “distribution point” (a larger load center box) which then feeds several building's load centers makes sense. This results in a distribution system that is able to shed loads for non-critical circuits, either to save fuel or to allow a smaller genset to carry critical loads, while minimizing wiring runs. The following drawings show a typical distribution point, and details of building entrances. Grounding as shown is especially important. Each user must tailor the overall network to meet the needs of their campus, but contact us for more information.
