Hassan Obeid is a global technical advisor for systems and controls — critical protection at Cummins Power Generation, focusing on technical vision, business strategy and solving a wide range of complex problems.
When designing a paralleling power system, electrical engineers need to consider many aspects including transfer switches, grounding and protection
In this follow-up Q&A, learn how to select and specify the correct transfer switch control, based on application
In this additional Q&A, learn how to parallel generators for emergency power systems, along with their fundamental control features
Learn about UL 1008 short-circuit testing and passing criteria, and know how to apply the short-circuit withstand and closing rating in a power system
Transfer switches are critical to the power system. How do high short-circuit and short-time withstand and closing ratings (WCR) help simplify the selection of overcurrent protection devices? Read more for questions left unanswered during the live webcast
Electrical engineers specifying paralleling power systems must understand the difference between generator set paralleling and system-level control. Read more for questions left unanswered during the live webcast
