CEE 5380 - Management of Industrial and Mission-Critical Facilities


Credits: 3

Efficient industrial centers require balanced consideration with respect to facility design and function. Mission-critical component management and information technology systems are designed for exceptionally reliable performance and efficient operation. This course emphasizes the component systems that are designed to maintain a high level of function. Covers electrical and mechanical reliability, efficiency, readiness, robustness, and flexibility, and the management of the information technology systems. Explores strategies designed to eliminate costly downtimes, with emphasis on standby generators; automatic transfer switches; uninterruptable power supplies; fuel, fire, and battery systems; energy security; and environmental and cooling technologies. Presents the implementation of sustainable technology, green certifications, and alternative energy strategies that are compatible with the mission-critical requirements of the facility. Includes operational approaches to reduce energy requirements for power and cooling, mandated safety standards, and environmental codes.
