Hi I'm new here. But I'm interested in the netural/bond issue. I'm not an electrican but do have knowledge and some experience on wiring of homes and circuits for things such as HVAC and som eletronic equipment.
If it's alright I like to ask a question. From what I'm seeing if you use a generator for home you have a few options:
1. you can run the generator and just use the 120V outlets on the generator unit. And not worry about the netural/bond on the generator.
2. You can hook up to your house panel by means of a Transfer switch with a switching netural if you have the netural/bond on the generator.
3. Or you can make the generator a floating netural and hook up with an transfer switch without a switching netural to house panel box.(if codes allow).
4. If you do not have the Netural/bond on the generator then it is not a issue. and you should not hook up to the house panel with a transfer switch with switching netural. You would need to hook up the netural from the generator being connected with the house netural bar.
Am I on the right path here?
Again I'm new here and just trying to understand, thanks in advance
