Perform the following final checks before Start-up:

Provide the services of a manufacturer certified specialist to supervise the


installation, make adjustments, and perform tests on the automatic transfer
switches and to train Owner's personnel.
Start-up checklists: Perform the following final checks before Start-up:
a. Visually inspect the systems.
b. Ensure the terminations are tight and all ancillary equipment completely installed.
c. Ensure all overloads are in place.
d. Measure contact resistance.
Starting Procedures: Follow the manufacturer's written procedures and the
following as a minimum:
e. Energize Switch.
f. Check positive interlock between systems.
g. Set/Calibrate Voltage sensing relay, transfer time delays (in both directions), and
synchronization relays.
h. Measure insulation resistance and resistance to ground.
i. Check manual bypass operation.
B. Emergency Power Engine Generators and Distribution Systems:
Provide the services of a manufacturer certified specialist to supervise the
installation, make adjustments, and perform tests on the engine generators and
emergency power switchgear and to train Owner's personnel.
Start-up checklists: Perform the following final checks before Start-up:
a. Visually inspect the systems.
b. Ensure the terminations are tight on power and control wiring.
c. Verify all ancillary equipment completely installed.
d. Ensure all overloads are in place.
e. Verify that generator is set in place.
f. Verify fuel connections.

h. Verify battery connection.
i. Verify exhaust connections.
j. Verify block or oil heater connection.
k. Check and record engine oil level, radiator water level, and battery electrolyte
level.
l. Piping System Tests: Complete system test in accordance with the respective
section.
m. Inspect the installation and access/clearance for service and maintenance to
ensure it meets the Project and manufacturers requirements.
n. Check lubricating oil for lubricated-type equipment.
o. Check for proper seismic restraints.
p. Check that safety valves have correct setting; greater than compressor discharge
pressure, but not greater than pressure rating of system components.
q. Check that all operating controls are set for initial safe operation.
Starting Procedures: Follow the manufacturer's written procedures and the
following as a minimum:
r. Test generator at 50, 75, 100, 125 percent load capacity using load banks at 100
percent power factor.
s. Run load test at all loads except 125 percent for 30 minutes recording engine and
alternator readings at the start, at 15 minutes and at 30 minutes. 125 percent load
to be run for 15 minutes recording readings at the start and end of test.
t. Simulate operation of all generator safeties such as high oil pressure, low oil
pressure, high temperature, over speed, etc. Observe function of safeties under
actual malfunction situation.
u. Check for excessive vibration and noise.
