What to consider when designing a paralleling power system
When designing a paralleling power system, electrical engineers need to consider many aspects including transfer switches, grounding and protection
ATTENDEES QUALIFY FOR A CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION.
This comprehensive course provides electrical engineers with an overview of power systems and covers the elements to consider for designing generator paralleling systems, automatic transfer switches, withstand/closing ratings, grounding and protection.
Also, the course covers when and how a system-level control fits in the power system. System-level control reliability will be explored while the instructor reviews genset paralleling and control strategies employed to eliminate potential single points of failure.
- Understand generator paralleling functions in a distributed logic architecture.
- Review electrical distributions boards and the major differences UL 891 and UL 1558.
- Apply transfer switches withstand/closing ratings in a power system.
- Know about the functionalities and applications of a system level control.
- Evaluate protection, ground fault considerations, neutral grounding resistors and 3-pole/4-pole transfer switches.
