Commissioning Electrical Systems in Mission Critical Facilities

The overall goal of commissioning must be to ensure that a facility meets the design intent and the owner?s requirements. For critical facilities, this goal is generally achieved by proving to the owner that the reliability, redundancy, and resiliency that he or she paid for is indeed present and operational in the finished facility.

As expected, the owner will want to use the commissioning process to be certain that the installation, performance, and operation of new equipment is acceptable before it supports critical load, and he or she will strive to do this as cheaply and as quickly as possible.

Josh Gepner’s article in this month’s Pure Power Magazine explores the best practices for testing several electrical systems in mission critical facilities, as well as some of the challenges encountered.
