I think you are looking at it wrong, you need an Automatic Transfer Switch.
It connects to both commercial power and your generator, and provides a feed
into your panels. Your UPS's sit in front of the ATS, and provide clean
power. If/When you loose commercial power, the ATS will detect this and
power on the generator, after a configurable amount of time it will switch to
generator power, until commercial power comes back and is stable for X amount
Does anyone know of a way to get a UPS to trigger a generator to start, and
to switch over to the generator power automatically or does this type of
thing just not exist?
We are talking about some significant energy levels here, and this
is NOT a DIY project. If the switch is hooked up wrong, you can
(attempt) to power up your part of the grid during a failure, and
kill people in the attempt.
