1. When and how to design parallel generators

When designing generator systems, electrical engineers must ensure that 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 and whether generators should be paralleled. 

2. Understanding the fire safety requirements in NFPA 99-2012

Learning the fire and life safety requirements of NFPA 99 as they relate to hospitals and health care facilities is critical. 

3. What millennials expect in the workforce

4. Pairing performance-based design with IPD for the best value

Integrated project delivery (IPD) is on the upswing. Pairing this approach with performance-based design is challenging but capitalizing on the skills of all parties at the right time can provide results that are worth the effort.

5. NFPA 92 guides smoke control system design

NFPA 92 is the starting point for any smoke control system, but too frequently it is assumed to be the only standard by which to judge smoke control calculations.
