Much of today's infrastructure such as hospitals, data centres, industrial facilities and commercial buildings cannot withstand a loss of electrical power. As a result, generators are installed to provide electrical redundancy and in some instances, may help to reduce power costs. This course examines the operation of generators and their application within an overall electrical system and focuses on emergency standby generators.
Generators are an essential part of todays electrical system for providing power when needed. Generators can be used for many different applications some of which include: emergency standby generation, prime power, grid connected and micro-grid applications. The purpose of this course is to learn how generators operate and how they may be applied to suit various types of custom applications.
The focus of this course is on emergency standby generators and how they may be applied in a variety of settings and industrial sectors. Standby generation are used primarily to provide backup power in the event that utility power from the utility electrical distribution system is lost. In this scenario, a standby generator may be started to power all of the emergency loads.
This course will discuss the operation of generators, their application, how they are integrated into the overall electrical system, auxiliary supporting equipment and generator package maintenance. This course will cover many practical examples, and will be interactive for students to gain a broad overall understanding of standby generators.
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:
