Learn how to select, design and test the correct Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) system for varying electrical loads.

This webinar covers electrical loads with a focus on Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS).

An industry expert from Schneider Electric will share their insights into the selection and sizing of UPS systems to support varying electrical loads. You’ll learn about This intermediate webinar will cover the types of common loads, environmental and electrical conditions, and Uptime Tier classificationseffects on sizing UPS systems. and provide participants with the knowledge and understanding needed to allow for the correct selection and sizing of Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS). 

You’ll also review the Australian Standard for UPS (AS62040.3) method for specifying the performance and test requirements, with an emphasis on common terms used for different types of testing.

At the end of this webinar you’ll gain a deeper understanding of UPS integration and how design impacts reliability and availability. This webinar will complement existing engineering expertise, enhance UPS integration skills and ensure product installation reliability.

This course is delivered in partnership with Schneider Electric:
