- 2019 NFPA Section 8.4.2 states that generator sets in service shall be exercised at least monthly, for a minimum of 30 minutes. I just want to know whether this is the NFPA minimum requirement despite what's stated in Manufacturer Maintenance manual?
- Does it apply to both Level 1 and Level 2 diesel generators (I would assume that since it states as generator sets)?
- If I'm unable to exercise the generators with not less than 30% of the kW nameplate rating under 2019 NFPA 110 Section 8.4.2 #2, can exercise the generators without load monthly and comply with section 188.8.131.52?
- Can I exercise the generators 2 times in a month with 15 minutes runtimes to satisfy the 30 minute minimum stated in Section 8.4.2?
