    I believe that supertausif is referring to an "Automatic Transfer Switch". These are used in conjunction with generator sets to detect when mains power is failing and automatically start the generator. When the generator is up to speed the switch will transfer power from the incoming utility to the generator.

    Generators today are available in various ranges but all these modern generators are capable of powering IT companies, textiles, chemicals, construction and infrastructure projects! I just visit powercia and just amazed with their products and specially generators.

    Cheap, homemade, and automatic transfer switch are words that don't usually go together.

    If this is a hack device you have assembled yourself, and it fails in a non-safe manner, you can accidentally backfeed power from a generator or solar/wind inverter into the power line. This may injure or kill electrical linemen trying to restore power during an outage.

    Proper automatic transfer switches must be certified and tested, and installed by qualified electricians. The power company may demand an inspection of your equipment before rebanding the meter.
