Advanced and Intelligent Back-up Power Systems: Understanding Digital Communications for Power Monitoring and Management

Part 5

ON DEMAND UNTIL:December 12, 2018

Duration:60 minutes


Managing and monitoring today’s power systems have become more important in the face of ongoing issues such as rising energy costs and utility outages, as well as growing adoption of onsite generation using alternate energy sources. As a result, more and more facilities are installing more advanced onsite and remote monitoring and automated control of their electrical systems. While basic alarm and control functions can still be handled by simple dry contacts and annunciator panels, more and more power systems are utilizing digital communications to deliver far more granular information on the operating conditions and equipment performance, over wired and wireless networks.

This detailed information allows managers to not just monitor equipment status, it can help determine usage energy usage patterns and minimize peak demands trends which can help manage utility costs and improve overall power availability.

This webinar will discuss the digital communications components and systems, as well as the various protocols utilized by digital Power Monitoring and Management systems.   

Learning Objectives

  • Recognize the basic elements of digital communication systems
  • Identify the various terms and protocols utilized in digital communication systems
  • Understand the benefits of digital communication systems
  • Examine opportunities to implement or upgrade to  digital communication systems
