One of the first steps to a successful generator set application is selecting the appropriate generator set rating. During this PowerHour we will guide participants through the industry standards that define generator set ratings; such as ISO 8528-1 along with other industry adopted ratings. In particular, the instructors will discuss Uptime Institute generator set rating requirements for Tier III and Tier IV data centers as well as industry responses to those requirements. After completing this course, participants will be able to:
- Define generator set ratings per ISO 8528-1 and identify their appropriate applications
- Recognize industry adopted ratings outside of ISO 8528-1
- Describe the impact of Uptime Institute Tier certifications on generator set ratings requirements
Our Oct. 24 presentation will be hosted by Shen Yoon and Richard Scroggins.
