While the basic concept and need of backup power systems has not changed, the increased likelihood of power outages has put greater reliance on backup power systems, making the their reliability more important than ever. When a utility outage occurs, the backup generator is expected to immediately start and support the load; however, even the best emergency backup power system, utilizing the highest-quality equipment, can be rendered useless if not properly maintained. This webinar will discuss the key aspects of maintaining and testing the electrical, mechanical, and fuel systems of backup power systems.
