Defining Backup Load Requirements
Our society has become highly dependent on electrical power. It is the underpinning of virtually everything, and we take it for granted in everyday life at home, work, and in many cases, public transportation. Moreover, virtually all of the critical infrastructure for communications, security, emergency services, and life safety depend on power.
Climate Change, in general, and the record weather extremes will continue to increase the likelihood of utility power interruptions as well as risks to life and property. In the new age of 100-year events becoming more commonplace, it has become clear that there is virtually no place that is totally immune to natural risks. Therefore, backup power has become almost as important as primary utility service, and, in many cases, it's a necessity.
This has caused a wide variety of organizations to consider adding or upgrading backup power to their existing facilities or include them as a requirement for new buildings. When a utility disruption occurs, everyone expects the backup generator to start and run flawlessly as long as necessary, whether it's for 30 minutes or 30 days; however, while simple in principle, different applications create different demands and requirements for backup power systems.
During this webinar, you will:
- Identify which areas of a facility or critical systems should be on generator backup power.
- Recognize the electrical characteristics of the various systems that are being backed up.
- Evaluate fuel autonomy run-time considerations for backup power generation.
- Forecast and anticipate generator redundancy issues for critical loads.
