GPS-100 – Generator Sizing
November 13 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Presents methods and calculations for proper sizing of engine-generators. Explores the alternator and engine responses to different types of loads. Presents different techniques to optimize engine-generator performance.
Load types covered:
- Limitations of traditional generator sizing programs
- Dealing with load uncertainty in new construction
- Recognizing leading power factor pitfalls
- When (and why) to use an upsized alternator
- And so much more!!
Each seminar was designed specifically for practicing engineers who wish to expand their understanding of current technologies, sizing, codes & standards, switching technologies and reliable design characteristics surrounding emergency power systems. If you are a design, sales or consulting engineer, this series is for you. It’s a joint effort of the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) and Generac Power Systems.
Classes are limited to the first 15 participants to register for each seminar with a maximum of 2 attendees per firm per day. A light lunch and learning materials will be provided by Total Power. Waiting lists will be formed as required when registrations exceed the limit, and alternate date(s) may be offered at the discretion of Total Power. Total Power may choose to cancel classes if registrations are too low.
There will be no cost to qualified engineering firm employees. Registrations must be made in advance and confirmed. Cancellations must be received 48 hours in advance. Last minute or repeated cancellations may result in future registrations being declined. Certificates of attendance will be provided upon completion, along with pdf copies of each seminar presentation.
