Power Systems Study

 Emergency Standby Generator System

Planning in advance should help prepare you for a possible power outage, but this requires that all scenarios and contingencies be taken into account. Power outages have many causes, some due to nature, and some manmade. Some power outages can be predictable, and others very difficult to imagine.

Your power should be designed for the worst possible case:
Essential facilities and services need to be identified, how much power they require, and how to ensure its availability.
At minimum, an emergency standby generator system should be sized to carry the critical loads, loads defined as the power needed to maintain public safety.
The emergency power system including the generator, transfer switch, emergency power panel and all other pertinent equipment should be documented.
Emergency loads should be identified and the emergency demand load determined.
The size of the existing emergency generator and equipment should be compared with the demand load and checked for adequacy.
Reserve capacity should be identified for future emergency loads, where applicable.
The emergency power system should be placed online immediately after a power outage to maintain continuity of power for essential operations such as life safety systems.
The requirements for runtime of the generator should be checked along with the capacity of the fuel system.

All emergency standby systems should have a regular maintenance plan that includes regular operational testing and inspection.
