After participating in this course, you will be able to:

  • discover in depth the electrical code requirements and how the code is organized and used
  • apply the code in your work situations
  • determine the liabilities associated with code non-compliance
  • design electrical systems in compliance with the code
  • broaden your knowledge of wire and cable applications
  • review the requirements of the code to ensure they are accounted for in the design, construction and operation of electrical systems
  • use your knowledge of grounding and bonding requirements in the code
  • gain more insight into the protection and control requirements of the code
  • assess your understanding of the requirements for hazardous locations in the code
  • determine the requirements in the code for motor applications, substations and high voltage lines

Description

This course, focused on basic electrical design concepts, is designed to meet today's demands for more integration of engineering disciplines in industrial and commercial design, construction and maintenance. It will familiarize you with basic electrical circuits and circuit parameters, and provide a general understanding of the methods used to design low voltage power distribution systems (for voltages 600 volts and below).

You will gain practical understanding of basic concepts such as direct, single-phase, and three-phase alternating current, power, power factor, and inductive loads. You will study basics of electrical generation, transmission and distribution, basic design philosophy and design procedures, electrical construction materials, services, and grounding and power quality concepts. Application of Canadian Electrical Code to design procedures, including relevant sections of the Canadian Electrical Code will be emphasized. You will learn how to communicate effectively with engineers and contractors who are designing or building, upgrading or expanding your plant’s electrical distribution.

Instruction will assume that you have no prior electrical engineering education but are currently involved with the electrical equipment and systems.

Objective

To provide people with no formal electrical engineering education, involved with the design, construction or maintenance of electrical systems, with a sound understanding of the principles used in designing electrical circuits.

Who Should Attend

This course is a must for non-electrical engineers involved in electrical and lighting systems in industrial plants and commercial and institutional buildings and facilities. It will benefit plant, project, and facility engineers, electrical contractors, as well as sales engineers involved with electrical equipment and systems. No formal electrical education is required. All topics begin at the fundamentals level.
