200 amp service, 30 amp generator and this product

This question is from 100 Amp 240-Volt Non-Fused Emergency Power Transfer Switch
Asked by
Tim077
November 20, 2012
Going to possibly have someone install this product for me and I was wondering if the 100 amp transfer switch is compatible with my setup. I have a 200 amp breaker and want to hook up my 30 amp 8000 watt generator. Does the transfer switch have to be 200 amp also even though my generator is only producing 30 amps?

Answer: 
You don't need more than 30 amps because that's all your generator can output. I have that exact set-up and it works fine. Remember that you cannot operate all equipment in your home at once. Be selective.

Answer: 
I am not an electrician, but a DIYer, but at most I would place a 30 amp breaker between the generator and the panel. Can't be sure, but even that may not be necessary. There are electrical URL sites that will draw an answer from a qualified licensed electrician.

Answer: 
If you are using the GE 100 Amp 240-Volt Non-Fused Emergency Power Transfer Switch TC10323R, then you can not hook it up to a 200 amp service. That is because the service from the utility will be passing through it under normal circumstances, and the transfer switch has to be able to handle the same amount of amperage that your house service normally does.

Answer: 
The easy answer is yes. The isolation switch (transfer switch) is only designed to handle 100 amps. In order to meet code you either need the 200 amp isolation switch or to change your 200 amp main to 100 amps.
I had the same situation at my own home. Instead of either of the above, I installed a sub panel next to my main panel and moved all of my 120 volt circuits to it. Then I installed a 100 amp

The easy answer is yes. The isolation switch (transfer switch) is only designed to handle 100 amps. In order to meet code you either need the 200 amp isolation switch or to change your 200 amp main to 100 amps.
I had the same situation at my own home. Instead of either of the above, I installed a sub panel next to my main panel and moved all of my 120 volt circuits to it. Then I installed a 100 amp breaker in the original breaker panel and used that to feed the transfer switch and then brought it back to the new sub panel. My reasoning was that I can live without my 240 volt devices (Range, Cook Top, and clothes drier) during a power outage. I further labeled each of the sub panel breakers into 4 groups; A = Essentials (heat, freezers), B = Kitchen, Safety Lighting and Garage door openers (Coffee Pot, Microwave, Kitchen and Hallway Lights, Garage Doors), C = Min Comfort (Televisions and Computers), D= All Others. Of course, you'll divide yours anyway you see fit.
Note that my resolution to the question will be far more expensive if hired out but if that works for your situation it's going to be worth it in the long run.

Answer: 
This switch should be usable for this application assuming that your well pump is a single phase 220/240v pump. The 3 HP motor should draw significantly less than 15 KVA which is well below the switch specification limits (24KVA).

Answer: 
NO - it will not. 30 KVA at 240 VAC is 125 amps. If your service is 3 phase or gen is 3 phase it will not work. That would exceed the rated capacity of the switch. If your service and gen were 100 amp or less at 240 VAC 1 phase, your generator has a floating neutral to ground loop (IE: not the neutral bonded to ground and frame or GFCI) this switch will work for you.

With the last description, you need only a 2 pole switch like this one. If your gen set has GFCI or is neutral bonded to ground or you have 3 phase power, you need a 3 pole switch and this will not work. A good value 3 pole 100 amp switch with these ratings is a Siemens DTGNF323R with Neutral Ground Kit HG61234. If your gen really is 30 KVA 1 phase, you will need a 200 amp switch. Good luck.

Thank you for your question.
I did check with the manufacturer on this question and here is their response to you:
"This item is specifically designed to transfer load from one feed (grid) to another (generator) but not both at the same time. If I understand your question correctly this is precisely what you need. It is manual and you must insure the amperage works in your case."

Remember that the "Neutral" and the "Ground" are different although they might be connected together at some point. A brass rod near the generator into the ground about three feet is a must to avoid any electrical shocks. Read Less

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WORKS GREAT! Product is exactly as described and easy to install. Heavy duty and well built. Works great in switching between my generator/utility. November 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best value, compact size Utilized as transfer switch for backup power system with multiple sources (multiple units required). Larger wiring lugs would be nice. They accomodate the NEC minimum 60°C wire size for the 100A device rating but no consideraton for larger wire necessitated by derating due to temperature, length of run, multiple wires in conduit, voltage drop, etc. 2 sizes larger would make a huge difference. January 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Everything I expected... Everything I expected, installed easily and performs as quality equipment. It's priced more than competitively, couldn't find a better deal and with free delivery you can't beat it.. November 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid Product This is a solid switch with plenty of room for routing the heavy wires needed to support the 100 amp rating. Best of all, it is made in the USA. December 27, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best way to disconnect your utility service to your home! After researching ways to hook up my portable generator to my home this product was by far the easiest way of disconnecting my utility service and allowing my generator to take over. No need for rewiring the electrical panel's or moving circuits around. Shortly after installing this transfer switch my power went out and it work flawlessly. I am very pleased at the price and quality this product provides. June 13, 2012
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bad choice Switch was OK but will have to return it in a few days due to wouldn't work in my system September 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Price Best Size I have a working ICe Cream Truck and needed a Double Throw Switch . for my Land line (when not on the road) and to be able to switch it to the Generator when on the Road.. I looked at all the manufactures and they where SOO BIG! and WIDE! I even thought of a older used one.. But a Google check sent me to HOme Depots on line ordering I called they gave ME GE Direct Number ! I installed it in my "tight" area with no problems and for me Honestly I do not think ANY thing else would work as GOOD! ONLY improvement I would RECOMMED is I went to my Local hardware Store and bought a 5/16 (I think) round BALL and I taped the handle to accept it .. VERY, VERY easy to do and makes moving the handle a breeze!! May 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Switch at an Excellent Price Our house already had a second circuit breaker box, so I had my brother (a certified electrician) move all of the critical circuits (well pump, refrigerator, furnace, etc.) to the sub-panel and install this swich between them so I could power the critical circuits with a generator if needed. I shopped for a transfer swich for quite a while and did not like the Reliance which used circuit breakers as the switch (I already have a main breaker in the sub-panel). Also, the Cutler-Hammer was about $400 which is unreasonable in my opinion. The GE was priced right and exactly what I needed. It's well built and should last. October 3, 2012
