Emergency Power Systems for Hospitals: Sweating the Small Stuff

Thursday, October 23, 2008 11:00am PDT | 1:00pm CDT | 2:00pm EDT


Hospitals must operate 24/7/365, no matter how bad the weather or other prevailing circumstances. In fact, the worse the weather, the more likely it is that the hospitals nearest the areas of concern will be needed.

Many of these concerns can impact the availability of power. And everyone knows that hospitals need a lot of power all the time, and that this power must be of the highest quality because of ultra-sensitive, expensive, and life-sustaining equipment.

Given the speed at which power is needed, the numerous things that can go wrong when emergency power switches on or kicks back to primary, and the critical nature of hospital electrical power, electrical engineering teams have to be knowledgeable and experienced about the minutest details.

Its those minute details that are the focus of this Webcast. Based on exit surveys from previous Webcasts, CSE is assembling experts in hospital electrical design to respond to requests for details on generators, ATSs, UPSs, and how to coordinate the power generation, switching, and quality equipment.
