Further Learning in Electrical Design for Mission Critical Supply + Technical Visit to Power Quality Centre

Designing an electrical system for mission critical purpose or data center can be a real challenge. Further to a training section in Data Center Facilities Design and Infrastructure Engineering, an advanced unit - Electrical Design for Mission Critical Supply - is going to launch in December 17 - 18, 2015.

The 2-day electrical design course introduces the power system design that support typical data centers or critical facilities. It prepares individual to fully understand the mission critical supply system, from power components to distributions and efficiency; from power requirements to designed, testing, commissioning and maintenance.

Day 1

- Concept on primary supply and secondary supply
- Power flow in mission critical supply system
- Features of major equipment for critical supply

  (1) Uninterrupted power supply (UPS) and power storage
  (2) Backup generator
  (3) Automatic transfer switch
  (4) Static transfer switch
  (5) Isolation transformer

- Efficiency assessment
- Power quality review

Day 2

- Configuration diagram of critical supply (N+1 / 2N) design & analysis
- Review of cable sizing to incorporate harmonics content
- Earthing system design
- Testing and commissioning requirements
- Brief of Systems Merging Appraisal Test (SMAT)

Date: 17 - 18 December 2015 (Thursday - Friday)
Time: 10:00 – 17:30
Venue: 19/F, New Victory House (Officeplus), 93 - 103 Wing Lok Street, Sheung Wan, Hong Kong

Technical Visit to Hongkong Electric Power Quality Centre
and Smart Power Centre

Voltage dips and harmonics are two major issues affecting power quality. To share the knowledge, Hongkong Electric has established a Power Quality Centre which enables participants to understand more about power quality and the ways to safeguard the power supplies for their important services.

The Power Quality Centre is equipped with a voltage dip generator and different mock-up installations to demonstrate the effects of power quality on sensitive equipment, as well as the voltage dip ride-through solutions for various types of equipment.

The “Smart Power Centre” provides advice on the choice of electrical equipment or appliances as well as general knowledge on the safe and smart use of electricity. The centre mainly focuses on introducing the effectiveness and easy use of electrical appliances, intelligent panel and automatic lighting control.

Further to the critical facilities / electrical design courses, you are cordially invited to attend the technical visit / guided tour by the HK Electric:
