Summary

Over time the updating of equipment changes the route, load (power requirement), and access-point of electricity. This class allows the employer's employee team to make these changes safely, legally (code compliance) and cost effectively.

Workshop Description/Agenda

Over time the updating of equipment changes the route, load (power requirement), and access-point of electricity.  This class allows the employer’s employee team to make these changes safely, legally (code compliance) and cost effectively. This means more reliability with electrical systems working as expected and without unplanned down-time. You will also get through initial install inspection smoother, and pass general inspections later.


Course Objectives

  1. Understand the electrical power systems in your facility — from the incoming utility and service, through the distribution and feeders, down to the branch circuits and controls.
  2. Make changes to these systems safely, legally (code compliance) and cost effectively.
  3. Get through initial install inspection smoother, and pass general inspections later.
  4. Increase reliability \ decrease unplanned down-time.


Course Audience

While some electrical projects should employ a qualified engineer, the size and scope of many electrical tasks require your personnel to understand basic rules of component sizing and system arrangement.

People who will benefit from this training include:

  • Engineers of all disciplines
  • Electricians
  • Technicians
  • Maintenance Managers
  • Building Managers


What You Will Learn

Learn how to properly interpret electrical drawings, construction blueprints and schedules. Examine and discuss basic electrical concepts such as voltage drop, conductor fill, short-circuit analysis, kVA ratings, service calculations and grounding and bonding.
