Maintaining Long-Term Reliability of Critical Power Systems
March 28th, 2012 By: Michael Potts
Critical applications require uninterruptible, high quality power. The most advanced of these systems are found in data centers where uninterruptible power supply and generator equipment maintain the continuity of power without one cycle of interruption. Effective maintenance is required to keep these systems dependable.
This white paper from Schneider Electric discusses the importance of maintaining and managing these systems in order to assure that they remain at their highest level of function. First, it describes the importance of benchmarking, and the importance of listing proper practices for quick shutdown in the data center’s emergency procedures. Next, it answers the question “are all circuit breaker’s equal?”, explaining that the best way to address circuit breaker maintenance is during design and specification. The paper concludes by reaffirming the importance of proper system management and that the best maintenance programs start during the design stage.
