2014 Electrical & Power Study
In April 2014, Consulting-Specifying Engineer surveyed audience members responsible for decisions related to the design of electrical or power systems within their organizations. The 2014 Electrical and Power study asked key questions on specifying electrical and power systems, including revenue, systems specified, key challenges, and important design factors.
Learn about the findings.

WEBCAST: Critical power: Transfer switches in switchgear
When an interruption of electrical power occurs, an automatic transfer switch shifts loads between utility and generator power. During these transitions, transfer switch timing and sequence is critical to ensure proper system operation. Consulting engineers must understand transfer switch types, timing requirements, ratings, and the effects that the characteristic of each emergency load has on generator operation. They must also understand how a facility’s electrical system (available fault current, number of generators, paralleling configuration) affects transfer switch choices.
