Neutral switching in transfer switch

Not open for further replies.


I don't know if this subject has been brought up before, but I recently had an inspector question me on whether or not the neutral was required to be switched on an automatic transfer switch. The application is: 480v, 100a, 3 phase automatic bus transfer switch from utility supply to emergency generator in an Oregon State Forestry office building. I'm not involved in this project at all, so I don't know what kind of load will be on the generator if that even makes any difference. Any code references would be appreciated.
(oops, looks like I used the wrong forum)

Hello Magoo: The job specs. may require that the premises wiring be a separately derived system, during a power outage.

The neutral/ground must be switched.
