Critical Power: Designing power systems for resiliency in mission critical facilities
The need for power resiliency at the mission critical facility level has been illustrated many times by devastating storm events, earthquakes or other disasters. There are many methods to design for new building power resilience and test for existing building power resilience. Ensuring that facility’s systems maintain reliability and support resiliency is the ultimate focus and goal of successful design and commissioning.
- Understand the power needs of mission critical facilities and their uptime requirements.
- Know which codes and standards define power system design for emergency, backup and standby power systems.
- Learn about how new or existing buildings can be designed, redesigned or commissioned to meet reliability needs.
- Review examples in which power systems were designed for resiliency.
