This course treats protection of circuits under 1000 VAC which, for the purposes of this course, are considered low voltage. Circuit protection, in general, is considered important for the dual purpose of safeguarding property and protecting personnel from injury or death. An important function of circuit protection is to guard against moderately elevated temperatures which can over time deteriorate insulation. Another, and equally important function of circuit protection, is to interrupt the high levels of current that occur during a short circuit condition. In some applications OCPD coordination is an added criteria.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
