Consulting-Specifying Engineer‘s top 5 most read articles online, for January 23-29, applying NFPA 110-2016, NEC 2017 changes, batteries in mission critical facilities, choosing a modular data center, and battling the complexity of government system designs. Link to each article below.
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.
The current version of NFPA 70: National Electrical Code (NEC) is the 2014 edition. Though this version has not been adopted in all jurisdictions, this article reviews a project that is being designed to meet the 2014 code.
Engineering design, maintenance, and testing of batteries in mission critical facilities is imperative for proper operation and safety.
Modular data centers can be cost-effective, scalable options. There are several variables to consider, however, when comparing them to brick-and-mortar facilities.
The government can be a tough customer, and the projects that state, municipal, federal, and military entities approach engineers about are highly complex. Here, engineers with experience tackling such tall orders offer advice on how to execute successfully.
