Abstract:  The Automatic Transfer Switch presentation will focus on properly specifying the transition method based on the types of loads and application. This will cover the advantages and disadvantages of open transition, delayed transition, and closed transition – while also briefly discussing PG&E’s Rule 21 and its effect on introducing closed transition switches to the grid. In addition to ATS transition modes, we will discuss the benefits of ATS with bypass-isolation. We will also discuss criteria for how to correctly specify 3-pole vs. 4 pole ATSs depending on the grounding scheme and ground fault considerations.  Lastly, we will cover UL 1008 with emphasis on Revision 7 released November 1, 2014 and how it affects appropriately sizing your ATS based on the associated withstand close-on rating (WCR).
Biography: Alex Lotz began his career with ASCO in 2012 after graduating from Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering.

Agenda:
While new to the US market, Engineers have applied Medium Voltage Gas Insulated Switchgear(GIS) around the world for years. The installed base is in the thousands of sections. With higher ratings, smaller footprints, faster operating times, and increased safety, GIS is truly game changing equipment. Come to the September IEEE/ IAS meeting and see the future of medium voltage distribution switchgear.
5:30 pm (Arrival/relax time) 6:00 pm (Presentation) 7:00 pm (Dinner) Student Members: $10 (at the door) discounted cost for first 5 reserved IEEE Student Members.

Biography:
Phillip (Phil) Riemer is a medium voltage Offer Marketing Specialist at Schneider Electric North America, and is currently the U.S.Product Manager for Schneider Electric's medium voltage gas-insulated switchgear (GIS). Based in Nashville, TN, a hub for Schneider Electric's Medium Voltage offers, Phil has had extensive experience in metal-clad and metal-enclosed switchgear, and arc flash mitigation techniques. Phil is dedicated to educating clients on the inherent safety, reliability, and commercial benefits of metal-enclosed GIS. In addition to GIS, and Arc Flash Mitigation, Phil has expertise in seismic qualification and testing of non-structural equipment, and is an Engineering Advisor on projects across the U.S.



Welcome Back!


2015-2016 Year of SF IAS
Image
Let's make this year better than ever and really get involved. What we are looking forward to this year:

-Linkedin Conversations
Our Linkedin group is a great forum to start a general conversation to speak about Title 24, job openings, general electrical discussions.

-Field Trips
We are always looking for great opportunities for our group to go out on a field trip. We have previously gone to Anchor Steam Brewery and Levi Stadium. Please send any suggestion you may have.
