This course focuses on basic electrical design concepts that will meet the demands of industrial and commercial design, construction, and maintenance. In addition to familiarizing participants with basic electrical circuits and circuit parameters, the course provides a general understanding of the methods used to design low voltage power distribution systems (600 volts or less).
The course will emphasize the Canadian Electrical Code while introducing the basics of electrical generation, transmission and distribution, design philosophy and procedures, construction materials, services, grounding, and power quality.
What Do Participants Learn?
After participating in this course you will be able to:
Understand and apply electrical code requirements
Design electrical systems in compliance with the code
Broaden your knowledge of electrical equipment, wire, and cable applications
Relate electrical code to grounding and bonding requirements
Determine the code requirements for motor applications, substations, and high voltage lines
Who Should Attend?
Non-Electrical Engineers • Project Engineers • Operations and Maintenance Engineers • Managers • Construction personnel • Plant and Facility Engineers • Inspectors and Municipal personnel • Electrical Contractor
