Title
(EN) RELIABLE ELECTRICAL DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM WITH ALTERNATE POWER SOURCE
(FR) SYSTÈME DE DISTRIBUTION ÉLECTRIQUE FIABLE À SOURCE D'ALIMENTATION DE SECOURS
Abstract
(EN)
A method of managing an electrical power distribution system for a healthcare facility having electrical loads that include critical loads requiring highly reliable power delivery. A controller receives signals from devices in the power distribution system, and a communications network is coupled to the controller and the devices in the power distribution system. The controller receives information regarding the delivery of power to the loads, including the occurrence of trip conditions that interrupt the delivery of power to identified loads. The controller transmits an alarm when a trip condition occurs so that action can be taken to resume the delivery of power to loads to which power delivery has been interrupted; stores and periodically evaluates information regarding the occurrences of trip conditions and uses of the alternate power source by load; and transmits an alert when the evaluation identifies a performance change for any load.

L'invention porte sur un procédé de gestion d'un système de distribution d'énergie électrique pour une installation de soins de santé, qui a des charges électriques qui comprennent des charges critiques nécessitant une fourniture d'énergie hautement fiable. Un dispositif de commande reçoit des signaux à partir de dispositifs dans le système de distribution d'énergie, et un réseau de communication est couplé au dispositif de commande et aux dispositifs dans le système de distribution d'énergie. Le dispositif de commande reçoit des informations concernant la fourniture d'énergie aux charges, y compris l'apparition de conditions de disjonction qui interrompent la fourniture d'énergie à des charges identifiées. Le dispositif de commande transmet une alarme lorsqu'une condition de disjonction se produit, de sorte qu'une action puisse être entreprise afin de reprendre le fourniture d'énergie à des charges sur lesquelles une fourniture d'énergie a été interrompue ; stocke et évalue périodiquement des informations concernant les apparitions de conditions de disjonction et d'utilisations de la source d'alimentation de secours par charge ; et transmet une alerte lorsque l'évaluation identifie un changement de performances pour une quelconque charge.
