What are generator neutral earthing resistances

    what are generator neutral earthing resistances. Are they necessary for small generators?
    (50 KW 3 phase 120/208v.)

    Devices that limit fault current. Shouldn't be required on a small generator but depends on the application.

    What applications will be necessary? I plan to run 2 generators in parallel. (3 phase) Would a stator winding fault relay be needed also?
