Generators & Emergency Power On-Site Training
Designed to help you understand the types, applications, operations, maintenance and testing of on-site power generator systems
This electrical training course was created to bring students up to speed in their knowledge of generators and emergency power as quickly, safely and efficiently as possible. It is specifically designed for maintenance technicians, electricians and others working in industrial plants, data centers and commercial buildings, or wherever backup generator and emergency power applications are found. It provides a practical, real world approach to understanding, maintaining and preparing your generators for emergency situations. Students� specific needs and concerns are also addressed during the class so that they can go back to their workplace and immediately apply what they�ve learned.
Overall, the purpose of this electrical training course is to increase the skill and confidence in technicians who are responsible for maintaining, testing, and managing generator power and emergency backup systems. This course can also be adopted as part of a company�s regular Qualified Electrical Worker program.
Although this course is designed specifically for personnel that work with emergency and on-site power generation, every facility and location for which emergency power continuity is essential should have at least one active employee with this knowledge at all times. As long as you work with onsite power generators or UPS systems, you will benefit from and fit in at this seminar, regardless of experience, background, or industry. Technicians who most stand to benefit from this course include:
As well maintenance personnel in the following facilities should consider this facilities management training:
What You Will Learn
In today�s environment nothing can be taken for granted. Weather situations like tornados, blizzards, hurricanes, wind and lighting strikes can cause power outages for a few seconds or several days. Earthquakes, explosions and fire can sever lines to your facility. Sometimes we simply experience blackouts because our utility systems are overtaxed in hot weather. Whatever the cause, lack of electricity at your facility can be devastating whether you are a hospital caring for the sick, a treatment plant providing water for your community, a data center serving a world marketplace, or a manufacturing plant that simply can�t afford downtime. During this seminar, you will learn what you can do, and should do, to make sure your facility will keep running even if the electricity to your facility doesn�t.
Upon completion of this course students will receive a training certificate indicating that the student has learned:
And to be 100% certain you get the training you need, students are encouraged to bring their own unique power backup applications or case studies from their own facility for discussion during class.
In the field of emergency power generation, the ability to understand, maintain, test and troubleshoot your standby equipment is an absolute must. It is no longer acceptable to have your equipment installed and just �assume� that it works. More and more frequently building engineers, maintenance technicians and facility managers are becoming aware of the critical role proper electrical energy planning plays in the survival of their facility in the event of a power outage. This course is designed to take the mystery out of onsite power generation and provide you the peace of mind knowing that your facility is ready for anything.
Our seminar begins with an introduction to the basics of generators and prime movers including a review of basic electrical fundamentals and the different generator types. Next, the student will be taken through typical generator and engine control systems. Recommended maintenance and testing activities are also covered during this discussion. Students will then learn the basics of parallel operation; from synchronizing procedures to load sharing, and how to adjust KVAR�s to control the power factor. Proper applications of various generators for your facility will be discussed before troubleshooting exercises are introduced to hammer home what the students have learned.
