Consider these statistics. According to Contingency Planning Research power related events such as blackouts and surges account for 31% of computer downtime episodes lasting more than 12 hours, power failure and surges account for 45.3% of data loss, and according to IDC power disturbances account for about one third of all server failures. A standby generator is one critical equipment components that will keep you from becoming one of these statistics. Understanding the basic functions and concepts of standby generator systems helps provide a solid foundation allowing IT professionals to successfully specify, install, and operate critical facilities. This course is an introduction to standby generators and the subsystems that power a facility's critical electrical loads when the utility cannot.
