MEP
Equipment Power Rating Calculations
All right, now we come to an important part in the electrical design process for any type of buildings, this part states the used methods and approaches for sizing power ratings of all MEP Equipment used thought the building.
In this course, we will not use thumb of rules as many designers do for sizing the power rating of MEP Equipment but we will provide the professional way for doing such calculations which give more confidence for the designer about his calculations.
However, as a fast guide, we will refer at the end of the calculation methods for MEP Equipment to the famous Thumb of rules used and the conditions to use it.
MEP Equipment Power Rating Calculations

In below, you will find the list of MEP Equipment that we will explain their power rating calculations, this list will be updated regularly so, it is preferable if you register in our website to get the updates in your email once they had been issued.

Generator Sizing Calculations
 Generator Power Ratings,
 Application type,
 Location Considerations,
 Fuel Selection Considerations,
 Site Considerations,
 Environmental Considerations,
 System Voltage and Phase,
 Acceptable percent of voltage & frequency dip,
 Acceptable duration of the voltage & frequency dip,
 Percent and type of loads to be connected,(Part One) (Part Two)
 Load step sequencing,
 Future needs.
Applicable Procedures For Generators Sizing Calculations for Existing & New Installations
Step#1: Determine the Required Generator(S) Set Rating,
Step#2: Assign the System Voltage and Phase,
Step#3: Segregate the Loads,
Step#4: Match the System to the Load Profile, Calculate the Required Number of Generator Sets and Paralleling Requirement,
Step#5Existing Installations: Calculate the peak load of the installation,
Step#5New Constructions: Calculate Connected Loads to Generator,
Step#6Existing Installations: Check for transients or harmonics by using power analyzers and derate the peak load value.
Step#6New Constructions: Calculate Effective Load to Generator,
Step#7: Adjust the Generator Rating According To Transient Voltage Dip,
Step#8: Adjust the Generator Rating According To Site Conditions,
Step#9: Adjust the Generator Rating According To Fuel Type,
Step#10: Adjust the Generator Rating According To Future Needs,
Step#11: Adjust the Generator Rating According To Power Factor
Step#12: Calculate the Adjusted Generator Rating,
Step#13: Select Generator Rating from Standard Sizes/Manufacturers Catalogs,
Step#14: Assign Required Number Of Steps/Starting Sequence.
