Electrical Energy Technologies

Description

The study of electrical technologies is an essential part of the learning outcome for an Energy Engineer who needs to understand all energy sources and its conservation from technical, economical and environmental terms so as to allow for effective and efficient energy operation, from generation to final usage, so as to obtain the maximum potential from the electrical energy source that is to be used within a building, structure or process.

In this module students will learn about the electrical technologies associated with various industrial, commercial electrical equipment, apparatus and power systems circuits, which assists in reducing electrical energy consumption.
Gaining from the above allows students to learn about how to utilise and control electrical energy and to establish the clients/employers correct tariff structures allowing for accurate & cost effective usage and procurement of electrical energy.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Analyse electrical safety in the workplace

  2. Explain the operation of commercial & industrial 1ph and 3ph electrical energy distribution

  3. Design and dimension basic lighting systems

  4. Explain electrical heating system and associated controls

  5. Calculate and specify power factor correction and installation

  6. Appreciate and determine losses and efficiencies of power transformers

  7. Demonstrate high and medium voltage networks and connection requirements

  8. Compile electrical tariffs structures for cost effective energy procurement
