Description of the Electric Power Requirements for Buildings course
The Electric Power Requirements for Buildings 2 hour PDH online course is a part of the Electrical category courses. This course will introduce you to an approach you can use to determine electric power requirements for buildings and multi-building developments and activities. You will learn about terminology, and acquisition and analysis of preliminary load data you will need. You will learn how to estimate individual loads, emergency loads, area loads, and loads for entire developments and activities. You will learn about basic considerations for power sources and considerations when purchasing primary electric power from a utility. You will also be introduced to considerations when customer-generated emergency and uninterruptible power is required for certain activities.
This course is intended for all of the engineers, architects and construction professionals who are members of the building and infrastructure design and construction team. It will give non-electrical engineers an introduction to the issues the electrical engineers on the design team deal with in estimating electric power requirements for buildings, developments and activities. And it will give electrical engineers who have limited experience with building design an introduction to electric load estimating methodology.
Building designers and construction professionals will gain an understanding from this course of the terminology and methods used to estimate electric power requirements for buildings and multi-building developments and activities.
