Join Cummins Global Technical Advisor Hassan Obeid, as he reviews Paralleling Power System Design Considerations and System Level Control on August 22, 2019 at 1:00pm central. This one hour webinar course will provide an overview of power systems design and covers when and how a system level control fits in the power system. System level control reliability will be explored while Mr. Obeid reviews paralleling and control strategies employed to eliminate potential single points of failure. This course also covers the elements to consider for designing paralleling systems, automatic transfer switches, grounding, and protection.
After completing this course, participants will be able to:
- Discuss the major differences between switchboards and switchgear (UL891 and UL 1558)
- Describe transfer switch design considerations in a power system scheme
- Describe the functionalities and applications of a system level control and how it fits in a power system
- Discuss protection and ground fault considerations
