Overview of Assessment
This course will be assessed through a range of exercises, assignments and project.
Assessment task : Project 100%
- Project to produce a plan and electrical schedule of electrical installations with a LV demand up to 400A per phase of the metering, erathing , protection and power requirements for the installation accordance with the relevant Australian Standards, most notably AS/NZ1102, AS/NZ 3000 and AS/NZ 3008.
Particular emphasis in general installation planning process will be on:
A. Arranging electrical installations to comply with control, metering, safety and other regulatory and functional requirements.
B. Specifying appropriate type and size of cables.
C. Specifying protection methods and devices that meet co-ordination requirements for overload and shortcircuit protection.
D. Specifying switchgear and control gear that meet fault level, current, voltage and IP ratings and functional requirements.
E. Selecting appropriate earthing system components.
F. Documenting installation plan, specifications of equipment, equipment locations, cable routes and schedules and supporting calculations.
G. Arranging electrical installations to comply with control, metering, safety and other regulatory and functional requirements
