About the Course

The power supply systems must provide maximum reliability and power quality while its costs are to be minimised. An alternative safe supply must be available for essential and critical loads to provide the required reliability and power quality levels. The Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) is the primary tool for providing a safe power supply for these load classes. UPSs have many designs, operations, and control algorithms. The main differences in UPS categories are the power capacity, switching time, safe duration, maintenance requirements, available system monitoring, self-diagnosis, and costs. For safe durations from minutes to – for example – an hour, static UPSs are the ideal safe supply alternative, while in longer durations, electromechanical UPSs provide an economically feasible alternative supply. In all cases, the flexibility allowed to deviate from perfect reliability and power quality should be used to design cheaper and simpler alternative supply systems; however, this flexibility should not be wasted by permitting poor maintenance and operating procedures to compromise reliability and compromise reliability quality.

This Uninterruptible Power Supply Systems training course provides an in-depth analysis of supply requirements. In addition, it surveys various options for providing an adequate supply system considering the design of the power distribution systems up to UPSs and carefully covers the choice and design of system designs and UPSs. The operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting of various supply alternatives are also considered in this course, and typical case studies and simulations are presented.

Core Objectives

The delegates will achieve the following objectives:

  • Understanding and assessment of power supply reliability and power quality
  • Defining load classes and assessment of the impacts of poor supply reliability and quality
  • Understanding and analysis of the sources and effects of various power quality (PQ) disturbances
  • Analysis and design of various power distribution system configurations and their relation to power supply reliability and power quality
  • Configurations of practical UPS systems as well as their characteristics and operation
  • Selection criteria of UPS systems for providing adequate power supply reliability and quality considering various load classes
  • Installing and operating UPS systems
  • Maintenance requirements and procedures, as well as troubleshooting UPS systems
Training Approach

The delegates will be taught through learning techniques that ensure maximum understanding, comprehension, and retention of the information presented. The training methods will vary depending on their needs, from front-end to blended learning. It is divided through information receiving, participation, and learning by doing to provide the highest level of apprehension and retention of the presented material. They will be working on case studies and doing a hands-on project, and at the end of the training course, they will be assessed to determine the level of knowledge they have retained.
