Description

Cables are used for transfer of electrical power between two or more devices. These cables are formed by binding two or more wires together. Depending upon the need of customers the selection of cable differs.  Cable protection and maintenance play a vital role as these cables carry electrical power to the systems.
This course helps students to know about the construction of cables, installation and maintenance.
After completion of this course, students will be aware of the process involved in construction, selection, installation and protection of cables in detail.
