Intelligent Switchboards and Automatic Transfer Switches
While the basic concepts and needs of backup generator have not changed, the demand for greater integration and communication with more sophisticated building and energy management systems have increased. As a result, the requirements of the intelligent controls that monitor and manage the key elements of the electrical chain and backup power system have become more strenuous.
This has led to greater demands on energy security and the possibility of integrating backup and distributed energy resources and energy storage into microgrids, which are now being considered by many organizations.
One solution lies in intelligent switchboards. This webinar will examine the role intelligent switchboards play in meeting the power management challenges of sustainable energy sources such as solar and wind as well as the providing the flexibility to meet potential future requirements.
- Explain the critical power path of the electrical system in relation to backup power systems.
- Classify the different transition types of automatic transfer switches (ATS).
- Assess how intelligent switchboards and ATS can provide multi-source power selection as well as load control, load shedding, and peak shaving.
- Examine how intelligent switchboards can facilitate the integration of backup and distributed energy resources into microgrids.
