Critical power: Transformers, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and switchgear in mission critical facilities (Part 2)

1 AIA CES approved LU available for attendees upon successful completion of an exam and payment of $25 processing fee

Engineers should know the design concepts for selecting and sizing transformers, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and switchgear to help achieve energy efficiency in mission critical facilities (data centers, hospitals, etc.).

Learning objectives:

  • Understand how an electrical system consumes energy and what components are major factors in consumption of that energy.
  • Know the advances in transformers, uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs) and switchgear to improve efficiency.
  • Learn about various methods and designs to improve efficiency and save on energy cost.
  • Hear about mission critical projects in which one or more of these systems was specified to meet critical power needs.
