Critical power: Selective coordination in health care buildings
Health care facilities, especially hospitals, have more stringent selective coordination requirements than conventional building electrical systems, according to some electrical engineers. The unique constraints of health care facility electrical distribution systems require engineers to be diligent when designing these systems. The code requirements are less stringent, but the function in these buildings is more important. Selective coordination localizes an overcurrent condition to restrict electrical outages to the affected equipment, circuit, or feeder.
