ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC ENGINEERING DRAWINGS
Installing a safe electrical system begins with a well-planned electrical drawing. Standard symbols and lines are used to represent the different types of material, raceways, conduits, and circuit connections. Computer Aided Drafting methods are used to prepare these drawings. Reading and interpreting these drawings accurately is therefore an important skill for technical staff.
This course is designed to help students to understand the electrical lay out drawings of single line, schematic, connection and inter-connection diagrams including logic drawings.
After completing this course, students will have expert knowledge on the CAD to prepare neat and accurate electrical engineering drawings for industrial power and control applications.
ELECTRICAL POWER DISTRIBUTION
An electrical distribution system is a series of electrical circuits that delivers power in the proper proportion to homes, commercial businesses and industrial facilities. In order to transfer electrical power from an alternating current (AC) or a direct current (DC) source to the place where it will be used, some type of distribution network must be utilized. It generally consists of transformers, feeders, distributors and service mains.
This course is designed to help students to understand the fundamentals of power distribution system including transformers and cable accessories.
After completing this course, students will have expert knowledge on the power distribution systems design and also energy losses in distribution systems.
CIRCUIT BREAKERS AND SWITCHGEAR
Selective co-ordination is a very important aspect of power system protection design. When a short circuit or an abnormal power flow occurs for a sustained period of time, the protective devices should react to isolate the problem with minimum disruption to the balance of the system. This course is designed to help students to understand the fundamentals and operation of protection system including switchgear, fuses and circuit breakers. After completing this course, students will be skilled in the operation of electrical power protection devices that improve the safety of the system.
POWER SYSTEM PROTECTION
Electrical power system operates at various voltage levels from 415 V to 400 KV or even more. Electrical apparatus used may be enclosed (e.g., motors) or placed in the open (e.g., transmission lines). All such equipment undergo abnormalities in their lifetime due to various reasons. To achieve safety of the system, electrical equipment has to be monitored to protect it and provide human safety under abnormal operating conditions.
This course is designed to help students to gain theoretical and applied understanding of power system protection, Protection schemes for various power system configurations, Fault current calculations, Protection of generators, transformers, transmission lines, bus bars and feeders.
After completing this course, students will gain professional knowledge on the emerging issues and challenges in the power system protection field related to increasing penetrations of distributed generation and intelligent, self-healing networks.
Application on Project management techniques help to a great extent, to foresee various problems associated with a project. Proactively identifying and controlling risk greatly increases the accuracy of the project’s scope, schedule and budget, as well as reduces the amount of time the team spends putting out fires.
This course is designed to help students to become familiar with the basics of time management, project management and risk management: how to initiate, plan, and execute a project that meets objectives and satisfies stakeholders.
After completing this course, students will have a very clear understanding on the extent of professionalism demanded by project management and the means to achieve that in all their endeavor.
A motor is an electro-mechanical device that converts electrical energy to mechanical energy. The very basic principle of functioning of an electrical motor lies on the fact that force is experienced in the direction perpendicular to magnetic field and the current, when field and current are made to interact with each other. Different types of motors have been developed for specific purposes.
This course is designed to help students to become familiar with the basic theory, characteristics, construction, operation and application of rotating electrical machines. It includes the direct current motors, synchronous motors and variable speed drives.
After completing this course, students will have practical knowledge on how to safely wire and operate electrical rotating machines and their associated metering and starting equipment.
Data communications concerns the transmission of digital messages to devices external to the message source. ‘External’ devices are generally thought of as being independently powered circuitry that exists beyond the chassis of a computer or other digital message source. It is the aim of any communication system to provide the highest possible transmission rate at the lowest possible power and with the least possible noise.
This course is designed help students to have sound knowledge on the working of communication technology, network management and security, OSI layer, RS-232 and 485, fibre optics and local area networks.
After completing this course, students will have thorough knowledge on /will be well versed with the hardware and software commonly used in data communications and networking.
Ethernet is a LAN technology based on the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.3 standard. As the number of users on the shared media increases, so does the probability that a user is trying to transmit data at any given time. Typically, each generation of Ethernet offers a tenfold bandwidth improvement. Even so, the Ethernet cabling schemes, CSMA/CD operation, and all upper-layer protocol operations are maintained with each generation. The net result is the same data link Media Access Control (MAC) layer (OSI Layer 2) merged with a new physical layer (OSI Layer 1).
This course is designed to help students to understand the architecture, operation and technical specifications of all Ethernet speeds including the basic concepts of OSI layer, CSMA/CD and full- duplex.
After completing this course, students will be familiar about the design, implementation and operation of Ethernet and its related technologies and standards.
