Case studies from four different hospital commissioning projects will illustrate identifying and managing obstacles when planning and implementing functional performance testing of emergency power supply systems for new and existing hospitals. The coordination effort to achieve successful functional testing of a large hospital system can be overwhelming and time consuming, but with the right planning and attention to detail it can be rewarding and valuable to clients.

Learning objectives:

  1. Emergency power supply system (EPSS) per NFPA 110 with practical descriptions of the typical system that may be encountered.
  2. EPSS sequence of operation – getting the right information and how to use it.
  3. Identify EPSS team players (who, what, when).
  4. Functional testing day, what it looks like and how to prepare.
