The electrical system’s role in designing for resiliency

Health care buildings’ electrical and power systems require careful consideration to achieve resiliency


Due to the critical nature of health care facilities, resiliency is incorporated frequently into different aspects of the project. Historically, the electrical system has not received this same depth of evaluation. In this course, the instructors will review how the electrical system can add to the building’s resiliency and can respond to different impacts under different circumstances. The instructors will also discuss the requirements from NFPA 70 and NFPA 99.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the various considerations that influence mission critical buildings’ electrical resiliency.
  • Review how the electrical system can perform and its impact.
  • Discuss options when you lose the normal source of power and how the impact to the facility can be minimized.
  • Explore an example for a health care facility level 1 trauma center incorporating resiliency and then testing it against impacts.
