Essential Power | Hawkes Bay Hospital

4000A generator main switchboard

This switchboard has 5 incoming supply generators up to 825kVA feeding onto a common 4000A main bus. There are 15 outgoing circuit breakers, all of which are motorised, and have plug in technology. This allows the hospital to swap out a breaker in minutes, should one experience a fault.
The onboard control system controls the starting and stopping of the 5 generators, and ‘Syncs’ them together prior to connecting them together. The system controls the outgoing circuit breakers, which maintains supply to the hospital during power outages, and allows for load shedding should the need arise.
