Power Control System Basics

This document provides an overview of Power Control System features and benefits, and describes their application to healthcare, data center, commercial, industrial, and water/wastewater treatment facilities.

Providing reliable electricity requires an ability to connect and control emergency power sources to a facility’s electrical system and control the downstream loads. For a facility with elementary backup power requirements, only an engine generator and a transfer switch may be necessary. As facility size increases, loads become more critical, and systems become more complex, sophisticated methods for connecting and controlling both power sources and loads become necessary.
