Codes and standards applying to mission-critical standby and emergency power systems are constantly undergoing changes, so engineers have to continuously keep track of their developments.

The difficulty is not just the pace of change, but the quantity of regulatory bodies and provisions that pertain to standby and emergency power systems. The changes apply to the electrical properties of the equipment and systems, plus fire/life-safety codes, emissions regulations, and structural considerations for seismic and wind specifications.

This Webcast focuses on recent changes to the 2011 National Electric Code; the 2012 International Building Code; and the EPA off-road diesel emissions regulations that went into effect in 2011. The topics include diesel emissions, ground fault protection alarms, feeders for high-rise buildings, and seismic considerations. This event is free, and all attendees are eligible to receive 0.10 AIA CEUs or 1.0 PDH.You must get 8 of 10 questions correct to pass the exam. You may retake the exam if necessary.
