Throughout this document, GC315x will refer to all controllers of the GC315 series and
GC400x will refer to all controllers of the GC400 series, while the names GC315, GC315Plus,
GC400, etc. will refer to a specific controller and the names GC315/GC315 Plus o
GC400Mains/GC400Mains+Link will refer to a group of controllers.
LOCKOUT - is used to indicate a fault that prevents the generator from operating and causes automatic
and immediate emergency engine shut-down.
POWER-OFF - is used to indicate a fault that prevents the generator from operating and causes the
standard automatic engine shutoff (including a cooling phase).
WARNING - is used to indicate a fault that requires the intervention of the operator without engine
shutoff.
MAINS – Public power supply line.
LOAD/BUS – Electrical power supply line of the loads. It can be connected to more gensets
GENERATOR – Electricity line that is connected to the alternator of the Generator set
LOAD – Electrical power supply line of the loads. This can be connected to the Mains or to the
Generator
MCB - Switch or component to manage the switching between the Mains line and the Load line.
GCB – Switch or component to manage the switching between the Generator line and the Load line.
CANBUS - Interface for the control and diagnostics of engines equipped with SAE J1939 or CanBus
MTU interface.
ISLAND - Type of plant where one or more gensets supply the Load without being in parallel with the
Mains.
MPM – Type of plant working in Island mode and gensets working in parallel among them.
SSB + SSTP (Single Stand By + Single Short Time Parallel) - Type of plant where the genset starts and
supplies the Load in case of Mains failure; once back to normal conditions, it carries out a short time
parallel with the Mains, it disconnects from the Mains and from Load and it stops in stand-by. Depending
on the configuration of the plant, it is also possible to synchronize the Genset with the Mains before
disconnecting it in order not to leave the Load without supply.

Below are the components of a standard emergency system consisting of a public power line “Mains”,
a “Load” line (the load that you want to feed), a “Generator” line (Generator set with alternator and
drive diesel engine), a control panel containing: a contactor MCB to manage the Mains, a contactor
GCB to manage the Generator, a device GC315 or GC315Plus to control the engine and the electric
lines concerned, an electronic board to adjust the speed of the engine, a battery trickle charger and a
number of components to manage the auxiliaries (relays, fuses, terminals, etc ...).
The switching of the Load between the Mains and Generator and/or vice-versa, is enabled by
contactors, mechanically and electrically interlocked, fed by the same line but controlled through the
closing and/or opening by the device.

In this mode the Load is usually powered by the Mains with the MCB contactor closed. The supply
of the Load is guaranteed all the time the MCB remains closed because it is fed by the same Mains.
If a Black out occurs on the Mains, the Load will remain de-energized and the gen-set idle. The
protections on the electrical measures and on the engine are disabled.
In this mode the Load is usually powered by the Mains with the MCB contactor closed. The supply
of the Load is guaranteed all the time the MCB remains closed because it is fed by the same Mains.
The management of the switching between the Mains and Generator (MCB and GCB contactors),
the starting and stopping of the Generator set are managed entirely by the operator.
The MCB contactor is opened after pressing the “MCB” button for at least 5 seconds if the Generator
is not present and immediately if the Generator is present in the window (correct voltage and
frequency). Closed, regardless if the Generator is present or not, immediately when the “MCB”
button is pressed.
The GCB contactor is immediately closed and/or opened, only if the Generator is present and stable
in the window.
In the event of Black out on the Mains, the operator must start the Gen-set and manage switching
to guarantee the power supply to the Load.
Before starting the sequence, check:
1) The Mains warning light “MAINS LIVE” is off or flashing and the Load warning light
“BUS LIVE” is off.
2) MCB warning light On.
3) “MAN” mode warning light.
To perform manual switching sequence, proceed as follows:
1) Press and hold the “START” button until the engine starts. Repeat the starting operation
if the engine does not start. The engine and machine alternator protections are active in
this mode (oil pressure, coolant temperature, fuel level, over-speed, etc ...).
2) Wait for the Generator to reach the running voltage/frequency, “GENERATOR LIVE”
light ON.
24
User’s Manual GC315xx-GC400xx
3) Press the “GCB” switching button and check that the “GCB” and “BUS LIVE” lights are
ON.
The Load is now powered by the Generator. When the Mains returns after the Black out and/or
the restoration of the fault, “MAINS LIVE” light ON, switching of the Load to Mains can be performed.
It is the operator decision to keep the power supply from the Generator.
INFORMATION! : The switching of the Load to the Mains causes the Black out on the Load for
the time necessary to correctly switch the contactors.
Switching is enabled by pressing the “MCB” button. The Load is then powered again by the Mains.
The gen-set will remain on until the “STOP” button is pressed by the operator.
INFORMATION! Ideally do not stop the Gen-set immediately after switching the Load to the
Mains, but leave it on for the necessary time for the engine to cool. To stop the engine, press the
“STOP” button.
In this mode the main task of the device is to ensure the electrical power to the Load in any situation.
To implement this task, the device continuously monitors the Mains for voltage/frequency faults,
phase failure or phase unbalance.

Sequence with Mains present:
If the Mains is within the normal values configured during installation, contactor MCB is
closed and the Load is powered by the Mains. The Gen-set is inactive and contactor GCB
is open.

Sequence with Mains blackout:
If the values of the Mains are different from that configured during installation (e.g. in the
event of a Black out), and therefore the Load is no longer correctly powered, the device will
begin the starting sequence of the generator set. You have:
1) Engine start command: opening command of the fuel solenoid valve and/or command
on the actuator and/or command CANBUS J1939 to the engine ECU (with the
maximum number of start attempts and duration of the command set by parameters
configured). Activation of the lockout with acoustic warning if the engine has not started
after the attempts.
2) Stand-by with voltage/frequency monitoring until the stable operating conditions of the
Generator . Lockout activation with acoustic warning if after the set time the Generator
has not reached the normal values for the switching of the Load.
3) Switching command between MCB and GCB with the consequent handling of the Load
load on the Generator.
4) The generating set continues to supply power to the Load, monitors continuously the
electrical values of the Mains and the Generator, checks that the engine protections are
enabled and ready to intervene; all awaiting the return of the Mains voltage at the correct
parameters.

Return of Mains power after Black out
The Load line is powered by the Generator with GCB closed and MCB open, but the Mains
is returning after the Black out. If the Mains is considered stable and within the tolerance
(normal value), the device starts the Mains return sequence with the standard procedure.
1) Switching command between GCB and MCB with the consequent handling of the Load
load on the Mains.
User’s Manual GC315xx-GC400xx
25
WARNING! Switching between MCB and GCB or vice versa, creates a blackout
on the Load line. The Load will remain de-energized for the set time necessary to
ensure a correct switching of the contactors.
2) The generating set keeps running for the cooling phase of the engine (phase for the
disposal of excessive heat). Once the engine has cooled, shut-down is enabled through
the closure of the fuel solenoid valve and/or the command on the actuator and/or the
CANBUS J1939 command to the engine ECU.
3) The Load is powered from the Mains with MCB closed. The Generator set is idle with the
GCB open, ready for any new operation.
INFORMATION! : The operating sequence described above is generic and in some cases may
not correspond to the one implemented in your system. For further information, please contact your
installer/Manufacturer.
The sole purpose of the “TEST” sequence is that of testing the Generator set in order to check the
operating condition in preparation for a possible emergency situation (e.g. a Black out) and to
periodically keep the mechanical parts efficient and lubricated.
The TEST sequence can be scheduled and executed automatically by the Gen-set control module
and periodically with a programming schedule, or manually by means of the operator panel. To
activate the manual sequence, the device must be in the “AUTO” mode. Pressing the “START”
button in this mode activates the Generator set for the “TEST” sequence.
1) The “AUTO/TEST” light flashes indicating that the “TEST” mode has been acquired.
2) Engine start command (number of attempts, time of the attempt). Opening command of
the fuel solenoid valve and/or command on the actuator and/or CANBUS J1939
command to the engine ECU.
Activation of the lockout with acoustic warning if the engine has not started after the
attempts.
3) The “GENERATOR LIVE” light ON indicates the correct voltage/frequency of the
Generator.
4) The engine stays on without switching between contactors MCB and GCB.
5) The operator decides if to stop the “TEST” by pressing the “START” button again.
6)
WARNING! Pressing the "STOP" button during the test activates an alarm
which prevents the restart of the engine, which can only be reset in the "OFF
RESET" mode.
7) The “AUTO” light remains ON and the engine stops; the stop is controlled by the
opening of the fuel solenoid valve and/or the command on the actuator.
INFORMATION! If a fault occurs on the Mains during the “TEST” phase, causing the automatic
activation of the Generator, the operating mode independently passes from “TEST” to automatic
“AUTO”. When the Mains returns, the mode remains in “AUTO”.
The “TEST” sequence does not foresee the load test with switching from the Mains to the Generator
so as not to cause an unnecessary Black out on the Load. However, it is possible that your system
has been configured to handle the load in “TEST” (parameter P.0222).

Below a brief example of the operating sequence of a general SSB + SSTP plant; the plant and the sequence
are similar to the GC315x ones described above in par. 6.1, but when the Mains is back the parallel with the
Genset is carried out in order not to leave the Load without supply.
Some sequence steps depend on the configuration of the plant, as the particular circuit breaker management,
or the particular Mains/Genset status.
In this mode the Genset is off and the Load is usually supplied by the Mains with the MCB contactor
closed. The supply of the Load is guaranteed all the time the MCB remains closed because it is fed
by the same Mains. If a Black out occurs on the Mains, the Load will remain de-energized and the
gen-set idle. The protections on the electrical measures and on the engine are disabled.
Usually, this mode is used only for the management of the genset by the skilled operators, mainly to
carry out tests on the a plant or in particular situations.
In this mode the Load is usually powered by the Mains with the MCB contactor closed. The supply

This type of plant considers the presence of more gensets in parallel among them in island
mode and to supply the Load. The normal operation is AUTO mode and considers all gensets
not in OFF/RESET or MAN on, in parallel among them and in power sharing.
The power supplied by the single genset is defined by a parameter or an external
potentiometer. It can also be regulated manually as indicated below.
The gensets can be switched off automatically, or cyclically, if the load function is activated.
By selecting the AUTO mode, with the conditions for the genset operation, the device starts
the engine and, after the synchronisation, closes its GCB contactor. The power supplied by
the genset increases following the load ramp set. Once the power set is reached, the device
automatically regulates the active power and potentially the reactive one, sharing it with the
other gensets.
If the genset is commanded to stop, the power unload is carried out and the GCB is
commanded to open. After a cooling cycle, the engine is automatically stopped.
In MAN mode, the engine start/stop and GCB switch are carried out by the operator. By
pressing the “GCB” button for the connection of the genset, the synchronisation is activated;
GCB is closed and the load ramp is activated. When supplying, by pressing the GCB button
the sequence of power unload is activated and, once over, the GCB is opened. Press the
“STOP” button to stop the engine.
WARNING! As some slow power ramps may have been set, check the command
against the "Power reference" value shown in the same page and not against the
value of the power actually produced.
It is possible to regulate manually the power to supply without modifying directly the parameter that
defines the regulation power.
