If it's a delta generator, I hope it's a delta pump. If it's a delta pump, you don't need a neutral. 250.24(C) doesn't apply to delta panels, as the AC system is not grounded at any point.

Easy answer: don't run the neutral.

480/277 Volt System at both Generator & Service Thus Neutral required per 250.24c to ist disconnect switch per code.Since Feeder Neutral is not required only equipment gr. But Service requires Neutral.
