FIELD EVALUATION OF POWER GENERATION & CONVERSION EQUIPMENT

by András Szende

Power generation and conversion equipment has

always been the forefront in industrial applications.

Since it has been around for a long time and has

been a steady field with gradual changes, the

related regulations have also been relatively steady.

Power generation using oil or gas is common due

to the still relatively low price and availability of the

power source and also inexpensive and flexible

systems available today. A gas turbine powered

station may satisfy urgent power needs for small or

large communities. Standby systems, solar stations, battery backup solutions using more

environmentally friendly power generation methods are used in hospitals, data centers,

or production facilities where power loss may be a critical problem. All installations need

to meet local building codes and electrical safety requirements, so the NEC and multiple

standards may apply for parts of the installations. There are control panels, electrical

power generation, storage and conversion components, all with specific distinct safety

codes, all of which are typically field evaluated and labeled.

Power conversion components also come in many flavors and can be extremely versatile.

A simple “brick” 24 V power supply is a standard item in an installation, expected to be

listed and not field labeled. A large motor control center, an electric car charging station

or a power station precipitator power supply are all very complex installations, which

often need to be evaluated on site as a field inspection with detailed product review and

some specific testing. Safety standards for these power supplies vary, and need to be

well followed to guarantee safety. TUV Rheinland can be trusted with good engineering

knowledge and experience to inspect them.
