Help please.
I would like to limit a generator output to 32 amps, if over then the main mcb supply will trip if prolonged, and thus protect the generator from overload. On start, a type b mcb will probably trip.
I'm unsure which breaker would be best suited.
This is an auto start genset of 9.5kva, so it would give 35amps or thereabouts at full load. The auto transfer switch has built in electonics time delay etc that enables connection only when the generator is running stable output.

I would like to limit to 30/32amps at full load. The genset is modified with neutral/earth link at supply point/isolator.

I would also like to protect supply from the genset with an rcd, or maybe an rcbo can this be done?
What would be the best option to avoid nuisance trips and what type breaker
Thanks in advance
