Consulting-Specifying Engineer's top 5 most read articles online, for June 12 to June 18, covered paralleling generator systems, BIM project coordination, data centers, and BACnet. Link to each article below.

Articles about paralleling generator systems, BIM project coordination, data centers, and BACnet were Consulting-Specifying Engineer's five most clicked articles from last week, June 12 to June 18. Were you out last week? You can catch up here.1. Paralleling generator systems—part two: switchgear

When designing generator systems, electrical engineers must ensure that the generators and the building electrical systems that they support are appropriate for the specific application. Whether providing standby power for health care facilities or prime power for processing plants, engineers must make decisions regarding generator sizing, load types, whether generators should be paralleled, fuel storage, switching scenarios, and many other criteria.

2. Using BIM for project coordination

BIM is used frequently when working across multiple disciplines, which can prevent clashes across mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection engineering and with other stakeholders.

3. Paralleling generator systems—part three: installation considerations

When designing generator systems, electrical engineers must ensure that the generators and the building electrical systems that they support are appropriate for the specific application. Whether providing standby power for health care facilities or prime power for processing plants, engineers must make decisions regarding generator sizing, load types, whether generators should be paralleled, fuel storage, switching scenarios, and many other criteria.

4. Analyzing data centers

Data is the lifeblood of any business or organization—which makes a data center a facility’s beating heart. Here, engineers with experience on data center projects show how to succeed on such facilities, and how to keep your finger on the pulse of data center trends.

5. A new approach to specifying with BACnet

Updated standard ASHRAE 135-2016 makes specifying BACnet equipment easier.
