    I have a 30kva generator which as being working fine. but of sudden, there is no voltage in the red phase. if i connect the breaker to it, the neutral will be reading as life. what can be the course. house help out.

    Hello,

    is this a 3 phase generator?

    Can you measure the resistance of this faulty winding against the neutral and then compare the resisitance of the other phases to the neutral.

    I think, there a winding interruption is in the red phase, maybe a broken wire.

    Regards

    Rainer
