Critical power: Emergency, standby, and backup generators

Tue, Dec 11, 2018 2:00 PM EST{LOCAL_TZ}

Critical power: Emergency, standby, and backup generators 

Tuesday, Dec. 11, 2018, at 11 a.m. PT/1 p.m. CT/2 p.m. ET
1 AIA CES approved LU available for attendees upon successful completion of an exam

When designing generator systems, electrical engineers must ensure that generators and the building electrical systems that they support are appropriate for the specific application. Whether providing standby power for health care facilities or power for other facility types, engineers must make decisions regarding generator sizing, load types, whether generators should be paralleled, fuel storage, switching scenarios, and many other criteria.

Learning objectives:
  • Know the codes and standards for emergency, standby, and backup power loads.
  • Learn best practices for specifying generators, touching on dependability, cost savings, efficiency, synchronization, and other aspects.
  • Analyze and compare the differences and similarities among emergency, standby, and backup power systems.
  • Explain parallel power-generation systems.
