Selective coordination of generators and transfer switches requires calculations and careful consideration of equipment specifications, especially the withstand ratings of the automatic transfer switches, and when to choose 3 cycle ATS or 30 cycle ATS. Not only are considerable costs on the line, but potentially the health and safety of lives, especially in hospitals.

Part one of this Webcast will provide instruction on the fundamentals of how to selectively coordinate generators and automatic transfer switches.

Part two of this Webcast will provide examples and more detailed guidance on selective coordination of hospital systems, including what's currently required by codes and standards.This event is free, and 1 AIA learning unit (1 PDH) is available to all registrants.
