Annual electrical systems and transfer switch testing
Facilities will be bringing in ASCO Power Systems to do the annual testing of the transfer switches. The test takes no more than 10 minutes as it transfers from utility to emergency generator power, and then back to utility power. Normal power would be affected; however, emergency power systems will see a power transfer and maintain power through generator back-up. This work will start at Alberta College at 5 a.m. Thursday and then proceed to City Centre Campus for completion by 7 a.m.
The following buildings will be tested:
- Alberta College Campus
- City Centre Campus (all buildings, inclduing University Service Centre)
- MacEwan Residence
