Make Plans to Attend Generac’s Annual Engineering Symposium


Generac Industrial Power is hosting its seventh annual Engineering Symposium, May 3 – 6, in Oshkosh, Wis. The Symposium is a three-day event designed to provide practicing design, sales and consulting engineers with educational seminars; general sessions where experts working in the field share practical knowledge; plant tours, and social gatherings to encourage networking.

During the educational seminars, attendees have the opportunity to earn one full Continuing Education Unit (CEU)/10 Professional Development Hours, accredited through the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE), as part of Generac’s Professional Development Seminar Series (PDSS). Generac is offering different five tracks during the Symposium to meet a variety of experience levels:

  • GPS-100 - Generator Sizing Pitfalls
  • GPS-120 - Paralleling Concepts and Implementation
  • GPS-140 - National Electrical Codes (NEC)
  • GPS-150 - Generator UL Listing and National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) Standards
  • GPS-180 – Controls

The general sessions will feature industry experts offering unique insights as well as key Generac staff discussing the company’s vision and showcasing the latest innovations.

Attendees will tour two of Generac’s manufacturing facilities: the world-class Oshkosh facility, which produces large gensets including the re-launched 250 kW to 2 MW generators; and the Magnum facility which constructs mobile gensets and accessories.

There are also multiple peer-to-peer networking opportunities throughout the event, including an interactive experience at the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) AirVenture Museum.

The final day will feature tours of either Lambeau Field or Harley-Davidson.

“The Engineering Symposium is just one example of how we partner with engineers to ensure they have the right standby power system. We’re looking forward to this year’s event, and getting to know our customers even better,” said Raabe.

Those interested in attending the Engineering Symposium should contact their Generac distributor. More information on the event can be found here.
