COURSE TITLE: An Introduction to Electrical Power Requirements for Buildings
COURSE NO: E02-006
An Introduction to Electrical Power Requirements for Buildings
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course will introduce you to an approach you can use to determine electric power requirements for buildings and multi-building developments and activities. You will learn about terminology, acquisition and analysis of preliminary load data. You will learn how to estimate individual loads, emergency loads, area loads, and loads for entire developments and activities. You will learn about basic considerations for power sources and other considerations when purchasing primary electric power from a utility.  You will also be introduced to considerations when customer-generated emergency and uninterruptible power is required for certain activities.

 

This 2 PDH online 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. It will also give electrical engineers who have limited experience with building design an introduction to electric load estimating methodology.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Learning how to convert motor horsepower to input kilovolt-amperes for preliminary estimates
  • Learning the definition of Demand Factor and how it is used to determine power requirements

Introduction to the Smart Grid
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes these technologies in sufficient detail to show their potential for saving energy, lowering costs to the consumer, increasing security, and reducing emissions of pollutants and greenhouse gases.

 

The U.S. electric power infrastructure (the grid) will face large challenges in the next 20 to 30 years as population and associated energy demand increase, environmental regulations become more strict, and the possibility of terrorist attacks must be considered.  Fortunately, we have a way forward. Federal and state policymakers, business leaders, and other stakeholders are coming to agree that a "Smart Grid" is not only needed but achievable.  The Department of Energy lists five fundamental technologies that will make up the Smart Grid: 1) Integrated communications; 2) Sensing and measurement technologies; 3) Advanced components; 4) Advanced control methods; and 5) Improved interfaces and decision support.

 

This 4 PDH online course is intended for electrical, mechanical, and civil engineers concerned with the design and maintenance of the electric grid.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Learning how communication systems may be used to detect overloads and reroute power to prevent or minimize potential outages
  • Learning how energy from virtually any fuel source can be accepted as coal and natural gas
  • Learning how real-time communication between the consumer and utility can be used so consumers can tailor their energy consumption based on individual preferences
  • Knowing how the power quality necessary to power a digital economy may be maintained
  • Learning how resistance to attack and natural disasters may be increased
  • Learning how the advance of global climate warming may be slowed
  • Being aware of current DOE demonstration Smart Grid projects
