ELC 2435   Electrical Theory and Wiring IV   Credits: 6

In this course, students will be learning about the various electrical system sections and components, primarily consisting of the generation, transmission, and distribution sectors to produce and distribute electrical energy. Safety concerns such as proper grounding, lightning control, arc flash hazards and other safety concerns are also course topics. The subsequent costs incurred to accomplish this are also discussed in detail as well as discussing such subjects as "Time of Use Rates" and "Cost of Power." Power quality problems in the electrical system are discussed and analyzed to determine how they are reduced or eliminated. System protection, control and coordination are also covered. Energy management and conservation are also related topics. A formal investigative report on one of these or other relevant subjects is a course requirement.
