At the conclusion of this course, the student will:
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.
Benefit for Attendee
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 is an introduction to the fundamentals of estimating electric power requirements for buildings and related infrastructure.
