No electricity provider in the world can guarantee an electrical supply that is free from voltage and frequency variations. The possibility of faults occurring in usersí installations or in the public distribution system remains undeniable and unpredictable. Since information technology (IT) installations are particularly sensitive to power supply fluctuations and distortions, they typically rely on an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to compensate. Some installations even include a second UPS supplied by a separate feeder, and a standby generator that can be set to start automatically three minutes after detecting a power interruption. If the risk from weather or other local occurrences is great enough, some facilities will manually switch over to backup generation, ahead of time.
To help your contingency supply systems function as designed, perform the following tests during installation and then periodically (monthly or quarterly, depending on contractual agreements) after the system is commissioned. Tests during installation phase are divided into two stages:
1. Pre-installation - test before connecting the critical loads.
2. Combined - connect critical loads and test while cutting standby generator in and out.
Our installation and commissioning 10 point services plan includes:
1. UPS functional and alarms tests
2. UPS specification test
3. UPS burn-in test
4. UPS step load and bypass loss transient tests
5. UPS start and stop test
6. UPS full load battery discharge test
7. UPS loss and return of mains test
