Electrical Design for Mission Critical Supply

A 2-day CPD Course Approved by Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) UK.


    This course is conducted In-Person in Hong Kong.


    General Introduction:

    The American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) Technical Committee (TC) 9.9 has published 10 guidelines covering a wide range of data center design and operational issues. These ASHRAE works are also referenced in the TIA-942 data center standard.

    We provide an introduction of critical infrastructure system that supports typical data centers and prepare individual to fully understand the main components that facilitate data centre design & build by exploring the standards of TIA-942 and Uptime Tier Levels.

    Furthermore, we detail about the key challenges and consider different criteria, from design, testing, commissioning, sustainability and efficiency, of HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) system in a data center.

    You will understand the design and maintenance issues of a mission critical supply system, from power components to distributions and efficiency.

    All sections are designed for data center management, operators, building services engineers, facilities and E&M professionals, etc. to enrich the relevant knowledge in critical facilities / data center design and build.


    Course Overview:

    Within the built environment, mission critical facilities have particular power requirements that significantly impact how they are designed and operated.

    The course introduces the power system design and the components that support
    typical data centers or critical facilities. It prepares individual to fully understand data centers’ electrical design & build by exploring the international Standards and sharing the speaker’s experience.

    You will understand the mission critical supply system, from power components to distributions and efficiency; from power requirements to designed, testing, commissioning and maintenance.
