The ability to select optimally sized generator sets based on site conditions and load attributes is an integral part of a robust power system design. This course provides a tour of a commercially available generator sizing tool and its functionalities, as well an interactive case study which shall demonstrate mitigation strategies for complex loads and stringent performance requirements. Participants are encouraged to sign up for PowerSuite at powersuite.cummins.com beforehand, and are welcome to follow along with the demonstration on their own laptops and/or tablets. After completing this course, participants will be able to:
- Identify the attributes critical to common loads and their impact on electrical power requirements.
- Recognize common pitfalls and neglected considerations when using generator set sizing software.
- Understand strategies on generator set sizing recommendations and steps to optimize sizing.
