Industrial Site Power Distribution
In Industrial Site Power Distribution, you'll learn ...
- Important NEC requirements for industrial site power distribution
- Use of single phase power in industrial facilities
- Various three phase installations used in industry, including 120/208 Volt Wye Connection and 240 Volt installations
- 480 Volt three phase delta and 277/480 Volt three phase power distribution systems
This course provides an overview of power distribution industrial facilities. Since almost every facility in the country has some single phase 120/240 volt power to run single phase 120 volt and 240 volt loads, this power supply is explained first.
Single phase systems are then expanded to three phase systems, starting with 120/208 volt three phase which has 120 volt single phase available. Smaller facilities can use this supply to run three phase loads such as motors and also run 120 volt single phase outlets. Next, larger delta and wye three phase sources are explained. Finally, the course covers high voltage distribution systems for larger facilities. In the process, single line diagrams are introduced.
Specific Knowledge or Skill Obtained
This course teaches the following specific knowledge and skills:
