Paralleled alternators are compatible if they can operate in parallel without having damaging or disruptive neutral currents flowing between them. The magnitude of neutral current flow related to the dissimilarity between paralleled sets depends upon the shape of their voltage waveform. Depending on the generators’ temperature rise characteristics, age and insulating ratings, neutral current flow between generator sets is not necessarily damaging. Be aware that neutral currents can also cause disruption in protective relay operation, particularly for ground fault sensing.
