Learning Outcomes
Upon the successful completion of the course, the students will be able to perform a complete electrical installation study in buildings as well as in special locations. Initially, they will be able to calculate the current rating of cables and lines, the protection of cables and lines against short-circuits and over-voltages and the appropriate switching, earthing and protection devices. In addition, the students will be able to design electrical motor installations and medium voltage substations. Finally, the students will be able to perform a techno-economical study using current electricity tariffs and reactive power compensation.
