The first step is to remove the load from the alternator to be stopped but not completely. Don't let the generator run with a negative load (in motor mode).

At the moment when load decreased to about 10-15 kW, disconnect the ACB of the generator from the grid.

Let the Auxiliary Engine run for 5 minutes without load and stop it.
