This two-day technical 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 course also deals extensively with the various battery designs used in UPS systems, including an in-depth examination of How batteries are designed, scheduled maintenance, as well as procedures for safely testing and maintaining battery systems.
A solid working knowledge of the typical electrical components found within a UPS is developed before exploring 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 thoroughly discussed. This will be followed by a troubleshooting exercise. Students are given failure scenarios where they work in groups to find 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 troubleshooting.
Some working knowledge of basic electrical engineering principles is required, although this will be revised at the beginning of the course. Real-life experience in working with batteries and UPS systems will enable the workshop to be placed in context.
