Mr. Paul O'Hara of Distribution Unit of Cummins, Inc.

Topic:

Five Common Generator Issues for California


This presentation covers the five most common issues which are encountered when designing and installing backup generators at facilities in California. The presentation includes:



  1. Recent changes in emission regulations and resulting cost/equipment requirements;

  2. Tips and watch-outs when sizing generators for fire pumps, UPS, and solid state start motors;

  3. How to provide both the code required alternator protection and also coordination with downstream overcurrent devices;

  4. “Service Entrance” requirements for emergency power systems with outdoor generators; and

  5. Seismic code interpretations and implications on equipment and cost. Each topic is covered fairly briefly with “rules of thumb” explained for each.
