EMERGENCY POWER SYSTEM MAINTENANCE & OPERATIONS
2 DAY ON-SITE
This training is designed for facility and plant maintenance technicians who operate and maintain emergency power systems such as generators and uninterruptable power systems. Students will learn about emergency power system designs, application, testing, operations, maintenance and troubleshooting
Purpose of Training
In today’s world of data, electronic controls and efficiencies, having a reliable emergency power system is one of the most critical pieces of many facility and plant operations, but they are often misunderstood as they are not used on a daily basis. Proper design, implementation, operation and maintenance of emergency power system are key skills required to make sure that your electrical system remain on line when most needed. Not having your back-up power operate when needed can be devastating.
This training is designed specifically for facility and plant maintenance technicians who implement, operate, maintain and troubleshoot emergency power systems. Students will learn the skills to properly identify the proper emergency systems for their plant or facility, and how to test, maintain and troubleshoot the equipment in a safe and efficient manner.
• Proper selection and application of emergency power systems.
