When it comes to emergency standby power systems, failure to start or failure to run can have enormous consequences. The risk of failure can be mitigated by a number of measures, including proper design, staff training, commissioning, regular inspections and testing, and preventative maintenance. A thorough understanding of onsite power generation, longer term power backup system, and short-term-or uninterruptible-power systems is also key. This session will provide a road map to ensure a critical facility's backup power is dependable and ready for action.
1. Understand the need for regular testing and inspection of generators
2. Review the roles of flexibility and redundancy in a backup power plan
3. Develop a testing and exercise program for standby generators
4. Establish a preventive maintenance gameplan to enhance power reliability
