$12.00

Students Completed: 764

This online course is an introduction to electric power requirements for building and multi-building developments. In this course you will learn about terminology, acquistition and analysis of preliminary load data needed, estimate individual loads, emergency loads, area loads and loads for entire developments and activities. This course will teach you about basic considerations for power sources and considerations when purchasing primary electric power from a utility. This course will give electrical engineers who have limited experience with building design an introduction to electric load estimating methodology.
