How to Calculate Backup Power Supply Requirements for Your Facility


Date: Thursday, March 27 at 11 AM ET

Time: 11:00 AM ET (Convert to your timezone)

Duration: 60 minutes, including LIVE Q&A

Determining backup power supply for a facility involves knowing which loads to backup, how much power they require, and how their characteristics affect the backup power source. If backup power is code-required, additional constraints affect the selection and sizing of the power source. This webinar reviews how to determine power requirements of facility loads; electrical characteristics and impact of different types of loads such as large motors and UPS systems on power supply sizing; acceptable power sources and other constraints applied by building codes; and how software tools can be used to simplify the process of calculating backup power requirements.     

Participants will:

  • Learn how to calculate backup power requirements for their facility.
  • Understand the electrical characteristics of different types of loads.
  • Understand how loads are classified by building codes.
  • Be introduced to software tools that can assist in sizing backup power supplies.
