Kingston Hospital, Surrey– LV Switchgear and Load Management System.

Working with Underwoods Group Companies Weirgrove supplied and commissioned a Generator-Mains Changeover System (GMCO) with an Automatic Load Shedding System (ALSS), these were integrated into a Siemens Stratum LV switchboard.

The GMCO detects mains failure conditions and manages the transfer of site load onto generators. This also required automatic switching of outgoing circuits to modulate the load within the available standby generator capacity.

The systems are "black start" capable and the load is applied in timed stages to reduce step loading of the standby generator system.

  • Automatic Load Shedding System (ALSS).
  • Switchgear commissioning and sitework services.
