We strongly advise you to (if you didn't already) take the first part of this course
Section 3:

  • Cables & Cable Sizing: This chapter explores the very important part of electrical design. Introduction of Cables, cable sizes, parts of the cable, types of insulation, important points related to cable, size calculation, etc.
  • Voltage Drop Calculation: Voltage drop calculation is must important during the calculation of cables, in this chapter, you will learn Voltage Drop Calculation in a cable.
  • Short Circuit Calculation: Here we have the Short circuit current capacity calculation for proposed cables, calculate the tripping time of CB.
  • Cable Tray Size Calculation: After cable size calculation we have the concept of cable tray, through which cable runs from one point to another. This chapter explains cable tray size calculation.
  • Earthing: Earthing is very important for any building, electrical equipment, so here you will learn the earthing concept and calculation of earthing pit, strip, rod, etc.
Section 4:

  • AutoCAD (60 Lessons): This section relates to the software part, where this AutoCAD chapter you will learn how to use AutoCAD in a professional manner, control keys, function keys, basic drawing commands, modifying commands, editing commands, dimension commands, block/layer, print commands, etc, plus practice.
  • Assignment: At the end, you have given a Real-Time Project for ground + five floors. You have to do all the calculations for a complete electrical design for this building.
