Why is this topic important?
This webinar will educate the participants in the following areas of the UL 1008 standard for an Automatic Transfer Switch (ATS) Withstand and Close Ratings (WCR). The mandatory and optional test options that exist under the standard; the 3-cycle and optional Short- Time Current Rating (STR) test. How the test options impact the ratings and the robustness of ATS. How a 30-cycle ATS is designed, to supply power to the load after a fault event. Application considerations around why and when to consider the use of a 3-cycle or 30 cycle Short-Time Current rated ATS.
