Designed by a collaborative group of key building services consultancies and contractors, this CIBSE Online Learning module offers a practical, flexible and convenient alternative to face to face courses. This unit allows you to take a coordinated journey through an individual topic or a series of topics, finishing by testing your knowledge with interactive activity pages.
 

Course Structure

The module is designed for non-electrical Building Services engineers who now find that they have an increasing need to be able to design electrical distribution schemes, or for those with a more traditional electrical background who wish to apply their knowledge practically to the design of electrical distribution within buildings. 
The module covers both the principles and practices of electrical power distribution from the optimum location for the main electrical intake position through to the choice of power distribution systems and their containment. It also introduces the use of essential and non-essential supplies and the possible choices for standby electrical supplies.
