You did this on an mep 002? Is it in three phase or single phase mode? I have an 002 with a fresh rebuilt engine and the breaker trips at a very low load of 8 amps.Yes, I've actually bypassed the breaker by hooking the main wires together on the back of the breaker. Then I put an ordinary 50 amp house breaker inline of my load. It has worked well thus far but would not recommend this to anyone because I have a lot of experience with these generators and would hate someone to ruin their genset by bypassing safety features.
Pls excuse my ignorance but what is the CT?It maybe not the ONLY reason, but your right, everyone should look. The same thing happened to me with a 60 KW. It was mounted on a large ROWPU. I turned it on, turned on the main circuit breaker for the ROWPU, and all was well. Then a very large pump kicked on, the gen set went into high speed, trying to correct itself for an extremely large load, and then shut down for overload. You would have thought the set was going to jump off the trailer! I figured the load out in KW, and it came to 35 KW. How can it go into overload shutdown? About 3 days later, it dawned on me to check the CT's. I didnt say a word. Changed i,t and slunk out of town.
You are in a hurry. Much better to find out what is wrong. It may not be the CB. It might be something as simple as a loose wire. Dirty contacts in the S8. A miss wired gen set. Unless you really KNOW what you are doing, you can really get someone hurt, or destroy things.Pls excuse my ignorance but what is the CT?
I’m trying to get one of my 002s to carry the max load and my breakernis tripping at only 7/8amps. Thx guys.
