The generator set power into the public line must go through the transfer switch with mechanical chain, ensuring the separation with the mains. If city power grid is needed, it must be approved by the professional sector (power supply bureau), and grid-specific equipment should be used.

There should be a suitable exhaust gas discharge system to ensure that the engine exhaust is out of the room, to always check the exhaust system for leaks. When the generator set room has exhaust gas, you should first open the doors and windows to discharge exhaust gas, to prevent poisoning from carbon monoxide in the exhaust gas.
