Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) System Efficiency

Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) System Efficiency

0.65 hr. Online Course

Level: Fundamental

Item#: RV-10983

SME: John Peterson PE, PMP, CEM, LEED AP BD+C

Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) systems are installed to ensure that critical loads are not affected during an outage. However, they have different modes of operation to save energy while still providing the same back-up power. In this interactive online course we will examine the differences, how they can be measured and show the possibilities of saving energy without risking equipment downtime. 
Course Objectives
At the end of this course, you will be able to:
  • Describe the traditional UPS system layout
  • Recognize where losses occur and how significant they can be
  • Compare an ‘eco’ mode and other arrangements with traditional systems
  • Interpret how modifications can be made to reach potential savings
