UPS System Training - Our 12-hour live online instructor-led training course is designed for Industrial, Commercial and Institutional electrical engineering and plant electricians, maintenance technicians or electrical design engineers.  UPS Systems are essential, but only valuable if you have the people on staff trained to work with them in emergency situations. Our Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) Systems live online course is designed to make sure your plant and facility personnel are ready for anything.

This Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) Systems course is designed for electrical professionals, including plant electricians, maintenance technicians or a supervising engineers. Our course examines the following important questions: How often do you get a chance to work with the Uninterruptible Power Supply system in your facility? Do you know what steps to take in the event of an emergency so that your facility can be kept up and running? What is your procedure if something goes wrong? What about regular testing and preventive maintenance?

This 12 hour 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 batteries used for UPS systems are covered next. How a battery works, their
maintenance, safety and testing is thoroughly discussed.
