Consulting engineers who specify emergency power equipment understand that installations for mission critical facilities, such as hospitals and data centers, are required to comply with NFPA 110: Standard for Emergency and Standby Power Systems, in conjunction with NFPA 70: National Electrical Code. System designers must interpret the requirements of NFPA 110, ensure their designs follow them, and educate their clients about how the standard affects their operations.

NFPA 110 provides performance requirements for emergency and standby power systems that supply reliable auxiliary power to critical and essential loads when the primary power source fails. The standard covers installation, maintenance, operation, and testing requirements as they pertain to the performance of the emergency power supply system (EPSS) including power sources, transfer equipment, controls, supervisory equipment, and all related electrical and mechanical auxiliary and accessory equipment.

Learning objectives:

  • The audience will understand NFPA 110: Standard for Emergency and Standby Power Systems; NFPA 70: National Electrical Code; and how they work together
  • Attendees will learn the significant changes from the 2010 edition of NFPA 110
  • Viewers will understand the criteria for EPSS classification
  • Viewers will learn how to minimize the impact of EPSS testing

Speakers:
