Technical paper: Electrical safety for mobile generators

Mobile generators are indispensable aids when power needs to be supplied to equipment that has no direct access to a permanent installation. This applies e.g. to building and assembly sites, rescue missions, and also to events.

Mobile generators can also supply sections of permanent installations in which the failure of the public power supply can result in critical situations, e.g. in buildings used for breeding animals, fire stations, etc. In this context, special attention must be paid to protection against electric shock, since the users are typically not very knowledgeable about electricity.
