This GLOMACS Uninterruptible Power Supply Systems training seminar will explore the various types of static and dynamic UPS’. Power outages are detrimental to the electrical network and installation systems. Thus, efficient uninterruptible power supply systems are needed to ensure their security, integrity and reliability. They are also used as power conditioners to enhance the power quality of the modern demanding electronic equipment and control centres.
Improvements in the main components of the uninterruptible power supply systems like the batteries, rectifiers, battery chargers and inverters, now incorporate new technologies and high end power electronics components. The uninterruptible power supply systems has become essential equipment in most electrical installations.
The superior dynamic uninterruptible power supply (DUPS) or diesel rotary uninterruptible power supply (DRUPS) systems are now making waves where reliable and clean AC supply which are critical and in high demand to power the data centres and critical equipment. The many salient merits of the DUPS/DRUPS are gaining popularity as it eliminates the use of batteries.
This GLOMACS training seminar will highlight:
- The importance and essentials of a UPS system
- Power electronics components in the UPS
- Characteristics, types, care and maintenance of batteries
- Construction and operation of dynamic uninterruptible power systems
- Battery monitoring system and power quality
The training seminar will elaborate on the similarities and between the static and dynamic uninterruptible power systems. This will include the types and care of batteries
At the end of this GLOMACS training seminar, participants will learn to:
- Understand the different static UPS topologies
- Comprehend the importance of continuous power supply for critical and sensitive loads during power outages
- Analyse the characteristics of batteries
- Understand the operations and construction of the dynamic UPS or the diesel rotary UPS
- Appreciate the merits of battery monitoring systems and power quality
This GLOMACS Electrical Engineering course will offer a manual to each seminar participant. The presenter will outline and discuss the topics using computer displays, videos and PowerPoint presentations. The seminar is designed to have an interactive format to maximize delegate participation. Questions and answers are encouraged throughout and at the daily sessions. Needs-Based case-studies and examples will be discussed in problem-solving workshop sessions.
Upon completion of the GLOMACS training course, the organizational impact would be:
- Technical training and up-skilling to improve and realise the full potential of a competent workforce
- Productivity increase through minimisation of project time acceptance / design and testing
- Identification for opportunities for improvements due to deep understanding of the presented state-of-the-art UPS and battery technologies
- Networking of personnel with technology leaders and other engineers and technicians with substantial field experience
- Attitude change of workforce, as continuous follow up of new technologies and their up taking could otherwise create a workforce with high resistance to change due to lack of understanding
- Ensure safety practices are adhered when carrying out maintenance activities
On successful completion of this GLOMACS training course, delegate will be able to:
- Understand the basis for the use of a UPS
- Understand Critical Load Applications
- Have an appreciation of Power Problems
- Be prepared to review the installation and maintenance requirements of a UPS and Stand-by power installation
- Be ready to improve reliability by improving the resilience of an electrical installation
Who Should Attend?
The technicians and maintenance staff will be able to comprehend the types, construction, operations, function of UPS and batteries. This will enable them to carry out effective maintenance activities.
This GLOMACS training seminar is suitable to a wide range of professionals but will greatly benefit:
- Electrical Engineers
- Maintenance Technicians
- Electrical Supervisors
- Engineering Professionals
- Project Engineers
