When the mains fail, the AMF panel will automatically disconnect the mains - give the generator a signal to start. When the generator is running smoothly transfer your house to the generator'. Power will now be flowing from the generator into your home.
Remember your generator will not normally give you as much power as the mains to support ALL your house hold appliances. So be very careful on just how many appliances and lights you turn on when powering you home with a generator.
Your AMF panel will know when the mains supply is restored. It will then wait a few minutes making sure the mains electricity is steady before it automatically returns the house load to the mains shutting down your generator until the next time you suffer a power outage.
