From portable electrical generators to standby power cogeneration units - from the facility manager to the maintenance technician - this backup power generation course is designed for anyone involved with electrical generation equipment in their plant or facility.
In today's industrial, commercial and institutional power systems environment, nothing can be taken for granted. Severe weather can cause power outages for a few seconds or several days. Explosions and fire can sever lines to your facility. Sometimes we simply experience blackouts because the utility power grid is overloaded and blackouts occur. Critical power situations demand 100 per cent power, 100 per cent of the time. Whatever the cause, lack of electricity at your facility can be devastating, whether you are responsible for a power system at a hospital, a treatment plant providing water for your community, or a banking or telecommunications network facility which must remain deliver a service uninterrupted.
During this course, you will learn what you can do, and should do with standby electrical generators and emergency power generation systems, to make sure your facility will keep running even if the electricity to your plant or facility doesn't.
The UPS Systems part of the course begins with a discussion of the need for UPS systems. It then covers the relative comparisons between various UPS topologies and their modes of operation. The batteries used for UPS systems are also covered How a battery works, their maintenance, safety and testing is throughly discussed.
A solid working knowledge of the typical electrical and electronic components found within a UPS system is explained, as well as how AC is converted to DC and then inverting DC back to AC. When all of the above elements of a UPS are understood, a theoretical rectifier and inverter feedback loop are throughly discussed. This will be followed by a testing and troubleshooting section. Students will be given failure scenarios where they will learn how to determine which circuit component has opened, shorted or significantly changed in value to produce the alarm condition described. The course finishes with a general discussion on UPS system testing and maintenance procedures.
This two-day Electric Generators and UPS system training course is designed to assist organizations to identify the many savings to be gained from proper UPS system design, application, testing and maintenance..
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
Specific requirements and recommendations for the installation, operation and maintenance of backup power generation equipment Where to find critical information from professional sources such as the EGSA, IEEE, NFPA, NECA and NETA.
What backup system and emergency plan is best suited for your critical power system.
After completion of this course, the participant will understand:
