Mission-critical systems are supposed to maintain ultra-high levels of reliability, availability and resiliency, whether the systems in question are electrical, mechanical or digital. Consultant Curtis takes those responsible for such systems step by step through methods of configuring systems that meet the needs of their firms as well as those of the end users, starting with an overview of reliability and resilience in today's facilities, then moving directly to policies and regulations, facilities engineering, electrical systems maintenance, standby generators, fuel systems and fuel oil, automatic transfer switch technology, the static transfer switch, power quality and associated problems, UPS systems (including those online), data center cooling, raised access floors, and fire protection in infrastructures. Curtis provides a glossary and extra material on critical power, business-critical power and Syska criticality levels.
