provide precise regulated and transient-free power to the computer
equipment loads. The mains supply provides power to the rectifier / charger.
AL TADAWI HOSPITAL PART B - SECTION 14
UPS SYSTEM


Page 6 of 19


The rectifier / charger shall provide regulated DC power to support the
inverter and simultaneously maintain the battery in a fully charged condition.

The inverter shall convert the DC power into regulated AC power for the
load.
- Battery Mode - Upon failure of the mains supply, input power for the inverter
shall automatically be supplied from the directly connected battery. When
the mains is restored or the standby generator set supply is ready, input
power for the inverter and for recharging the battery shall automatically be
supplied from the rectifier/charger.

If the input does not return, the UPS shall automatically shut itself down in an
orderly manner when the discharge limit of the battery is reached.

- By-pass Mode - Upon the failure of static inverter, the no-break static transfer
switch shall be activated automatically to isolate the faulty inverter and at
the same time maintain a continuous supply to the system load. The
automatic transfer mode shall also operate in the event of system
overloading or if irregular or undesirable output for the load is detected. In
this case, the system shall automatically return to the original mode of
operation if the disturbance is cleared.

- Manual By-pass Mode - If the UPS system needs to be isolated for testing or
removed from service for maintenance, the maintenance by-pass shall
transfer the loads from inverter to the mains without interruption and vice
versa.

- Power Conditioner Mode - If the battery only must be taken out of service for
maintenance, it will be disconnected from the rectifier/charger and inverter
by means of a circuit breaker. The UPS shall continue to function and meet all
the performance criteria specified herein except for the protection time
requirement.

- Intelligent Energy Management (IEM) mode - In order to increase efficiency a
single UPS shall operate in IEM mode supplying the load through the static by-
pass line within specified tolerances (customisable). This transfer shall be
manual, automatic (load dependent) and programmable. In case of by-
pass out of set tolerance, the UPS shall transfer the load interruption free to
inverter line.

RECTIFIER

- General - The rectifier/charger must consist of a 12-pulse fully controller
Thyristor bridge, which converts the 3-phase utility voltage into a controlled
and regulated DC voltage, in order to supply power to the inverter, and to
simultaneously charge the battery.

fully loaded inverter and at the same time maintain the battery in a fully
charged condition. If the battery is fully discharged, the rectifier/charger
shall recharge the battery to 95% of its fully charged condition within twelve
(12) hours and at the same time supplying full load current to the system.

- Walk-in - The rectifier/charger must contain a timed walk-in circuit to limit the
inrush current. The allowable initial inrush surge and the walk-in time should
be adjustable and not exceed 30 sec.

- Sequential power walk-in - a sequential walk-in of every single
rectifier/charger shall be automatically executed in case of the start up of a
parallel system in order to limit the inrush current to the value of one single
system.

- In the event that the system is to operate as separate standalone units then
disconnection of the RPA system should be possible without any changes in
the existing architecture of the system.

INTELLIGENT ENERGY MANAGEMENT (IEM)

- The IEM software package should be an integral part of the RPA system
which allows the RPA system to save energy during low load conditions. This is
achieved by requesting / programming the UPS or its Inverter to transfer its
load to the remaining UPS systems and go into a silent mode. This enables the
entire heat dissipation of this system to be nullified. This Silent system however
is On line electronically and will switch on as programmed in the event of a
problem with the utility or any other system. All this done without disruption to
the load.

- The IEM feature should ensure the following functions

Individual Inverters, which are not required to sustain the load can
automatically be switched off to save energy.
Depending on Load level, inverters are switched off Cyclically, so that
every UPS has the same amount of operating hours over a period of
time.
During an inverter switch off due to low load the remaining selected
inverters should sustain the load.
Customer to define if the rectifiers to remain ON for battery charging or
to be switched off for the UPS systems whose Inverters have been
selected to switch off.
Customer to define after how long or at what Battery level rectifier
should switch ON.
The IEM mode to be freely programmed to suit customer defined
degree of redundancy.
The reaction of the system in case of problems can also be selected
(for example: How the switched Off inverter or UPS should react to a
Utility failure).

"DIRTY SENSOR" trouble condition shall be audibly and visually indicated at the
control panel for the individual sensor. Additionally, the LED on the sensor base
shall glow steady giving a visible indication at the sensor location. If a "DIRTY
SENSOR" is left unattended, and its average value increases to a second
predetermined value, an "EXCESSIVELY DIRTY SENSOR" trouble condition shall be
indicated at the control panel for the individual sensor. To prevent false alarms,
these "DIRTY" conditions shall in no way decrease the amount of smoke
obscuration necessary for system activation.

The control panel shall continuously perform an automatic self-test routine on
each sensor which will functionally check sensor electronics and ensure the
accuracy of the values being transmitted to the control panel. Any sensor that
fails this test shall indicate a "SELF TEST ABNORMAL" trouble condition with the
sensor location at the control panel.

An operator at the control panel, having a proper access level, shall have the
capability to manually access the following information for each sensor:

MOBILE RADIO SYSTEM
Page 3 of 10


1.0 SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

1.1 Description of Work

The contractor shall supply, install, test, commission and maintain during warranty period
the complete mobile radio system as specified herein for the hotel and serviced
apartment buildings.

The system shall be of the latest state of art technology in digital mobile radio system
and shall be based on DECT( Digital Enhanced Cordless Telecommunication)
technology or equivalent. Scope of work shall include the supply, installation, testing,
and commissioning of the whole system including but not limited to the following:

a) 30 nos indoor 6 channel base stations
b) 15 nos. outdoor 6 channel base stations
c) PC based management system for the subscription of the mobile phones and
programming the features.
d) Interface to the Property Management System
e) PC based Text messaging system
f) 80 Mobile Handsets
g) All related control, communication and power cabling, accessories and
terminations.

No. of base stations mentioned above are only indicative. Actual no. of base stations
shall be decided by the contractor based on a detailed site survey with all the required
advanced equipment. Contractor shall conduct the site survey and provide the
required no. of base stations at strategic locations to obtain complete coverage of the
area to consultant approval.

The contractor shall negotiate the necessary application for frequency allocation with
Ministry of Communication and shall be responsible to pay all the necessary charges to
Ministry of Communication.

The system should defines a Common Interface (CI) for equipment (between the Fixed
network part and the portable part)

The system supports both the Public Access Protocol (PAP), which has some proprietary
aspects and the Generic Access Protocol (GAP), which secures compatibility of the
system equipment of different suppliers for basic speech call. The latter allows the users
freedom of choice for the portable terminal equipment.

System should have micro-cellular system, which means that the system makes use of a
network of radios with a low transmitter power (250 MW). A cordless extension must be
registered by the system before it can be used to make or receive calls. This registration
process is called subscription. Subscription to the system requires a Personal Identification
Number (PIN) allocated by the Communications manager. Once subscribed the
extension can be temporarily removed, or blacklisted if required.

The cordless extension monitors the quality of the radio link during a call. If the
interference on a certain carrier (frequency) and timeslot causes problems, it should
switch to another frequency at that same base station. This is called intra-cell hand over.
This hand over procedure requires that the connection can be supported on 2 channels
simultaneously, for a while, to allow a "seamless hand over". So, first, the handset selects
AL TADAWI HOSPITAL
PART B - SECTION 24
MOBILE RADIO SYSTEM
Page 4 of 10

a new (interference free) channel and sets up a connection via that channel, while the
old channel is still in use. Secondly, the old channel is disconnected. The user will not
notice anything of the hand over. If the mobile user roams from one cell to another,
during the conversation, he will probably go out of range of the first radio and into the
range of the second. In that case, if the quality of the transmission requires it, the radio
link will switch over to the new radio. This is called inter-cell hand over, which will also be
seamless.

1.2 Continuous Dynamic Channel Selection

The system handset should continuously monitor its environment and autonomously
selects the best frequency, timeslot and base station. This selection and possible change
should be unnoticeable for the user, when moving through the system network and
during a call. This process is called Continuous Dynamic Channel Selection (CDCS) .Due
to this CDCS process cells may overlap and no frequency planning is required, as is the
case for many other types of cellular systems.

Speech communication between handsets should be encrypted (or scrambled)

If a cordless telephone set is lost or stolen it should be possible for the communications
manager to blacklist the set. This means that can no longer be used within the DECT
area.

1.3 Frequencies and Timeslots

System should pirate in a frequency range of 1880 - 1890 MHz. There are ten carriers
defined and in each carrier 12 full duplex (12 up link + 12 down link) time slots. This allows
120 full duplex channels in the air. Frequencies and time slots are re-used in the covered
area and dynamically selected, so the maximum number of available channels always
high enough even in high traffic density areas. Due to the maximum number of duplex
time slots, the maximum number of simultaneous connections per RFP should be 6 or 12.

1.4 Radio Base-Stations

With a radio base station a radio environment (cell) is created in which the portable
telephone can operate. The radio base station should provide the air interface between
the fixed network and the portables.

The RFP is the radio base station or the Transceiver for the radio signals. The following
should be made available:

Indoor RFP that can handle a maximum of 6 simultaneous calls (6 channel RFP).
Indoor RFP that can handle a maximum of 12 simultaneous calls (12 channel
RFP).
If required Directional Antennas should be used to cover the required range.

1.5 PP (Portable Part)

The Portable Part of the system handset should be delivered with the iS Mobile system
comply with the GAP (Generic Access Profile), ETS 300 175 agreements.

1.6 Base Station

The Base Station should supports the following features
