Electric Power Requirements for Buildings - 3 PDH

Email
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.

Intended Audience

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.

This course is a poorly reiterated version of an outdated version of the Unified Facilities Criteria (DoD). There is very little information that applies to civilian power distribution design.

Thank you for your quick response.  I can take unlimited courses for up to one year?  That means I can apply some of the courses for this year’s  deadline, and take additional courses after that toward my next period deadline!

Wow, an email from a real person and not a pre-written response.  That is very refreshing.  I will be sure to recommend this site to others in my field!
