Salalah College of Technology Engineering Department Electrical Section EEPW1240 ENGINEERING WORKSHOP Safety in the workshop means to work

without harm and danger. Remember that eyes , fingers, hands and feet do not grown again, so avoid accidents. Remember accid ents don’t just happen; they are caused either by your own carelessness or by that of others. Listed below are some important points to remember when working with electricity 1. Never work on live equipment. 2. Always ensure by using approved test instrument, that equipment is dead. 3. Never accept another person’s word that a circuit is safe to work on; alwa ys check. 4. Always try to familiarize yourself with equipment before using it. 5. Do not work on any electronic circuit when your hands are wet. Workshop Rules and Regulation 1. Always wear the required clothes. 2. Do not eat inside the workshop. 3. Do not walk around the workshop unnecessarily. 4. Entering and leaving the workshop is strictly prohibited without the ins tructor permission. 5. Return all the working tools when your work is over. 6. Clean your place before leaving the workshop. Electrical Terms Voltage - the electrical potential between two points. An electrical potential o f 1 volt will push 1 ampere of current through a 1-ohm resistive load. Using a common plumbing analogy, voltage is similar to water pressure and curren t is analogous to flow (e.g. liters per minute). Current - The movement of electrons in a conductor measured in Amperes. Resistance - The opposition to current flow, expressed in ohms. Power - Rate of doing work; measured in watts (= joules/second) Energy - That which does work or is capable of doing work. Electricity is energy that is measured in kilowatt hours. Circuit - A conductive path over which an electric charge may flow. Load - The amount of electrical power required by connected electrical equipment . Circuit Breaker - A device that can be used to manually open or close a circuit, and to automatically open a circuit at a predetermined level of over current wi thout damage to itself. Direct Current - Electric current in which electrons flow in one direction only. Opposite of alternating current. Alternating Current - A signal or power source that varies with time, switching polarities. Typically, sinusoidal and constant frequency. Basic Formulas: 1. A) R – Resistance unit is Ohm ( ) 2. P = V*I Where; P – Power unit is Watts (W) V – Voltage unit is Volts (V) I – Current unit is Ampere ( A) 3. E = P*t Where; E – Energy unit is kilowatt-hour (kWhr) P – Power unit is kilowatt (kW) t – Time unit is Hour (hr ) V = I*R Where; V – Voltage unit is Volts (V) I – Current unit is Ampere (

4. C = E*Rate C – Cost

unit is Baisa pe r kilowatt-hour ( ) Series and parallel circuits Series circuits are sometimes called current-coupled or daisy chain-coupled. The current that flows in a series circuit will flow through every component in the circuit. Therefore, all of the components in a series connection carry the same current and the voltage across the components is the sum of the voltages across each component. Resistors

Where; E – Energy unit is Baisa (Baisa) Rate – Rate

unit is kilowatt-hour (kWhr)

In a series circuit, every device must function for the circuit to be complete. One bulb burning out in a series circuit breaks the circuit. Parallel circuits If two or more components are connected in parallel they have the same potential difference (voltage) across their ends. The potential differences across the co mponents are the same in magnitude, and they also have identical polarities. The same voltage is applicable to all circuit components connected in parallel. The total current I is the sum of the currents through the individual components, i n accordance with Kirchhoff s circuit laws. Resistors The current in each individual resistor is found by Ohm s law. Factoring out the voltage gives . To find the total resistance of all components, add the reciprocals of the resis tances Ri of each component and take the reciprocal of the sum. Total resistance will always be less than the value of the smallest resistance: . For only two resistors, the unreciprocated expression is reasonably simple: This sometimes goes by the mnemonic "product over sum". For N equal resistors in parallel, the reciprocal sum expression simplifies to: . and therefore to: . In parallel circuits, each light has its own circuit, so all but one light could be burned out, and the last one will still function. Tools and Equipment used for Electrical Installation:

Earthing System The earthing station can be made in the following manner: One or two earthing electrode can be used. Earthing electrode may be a m etallic plate or metallic pipe or metallic rod buried in the ground with charcoa l mixed in the surrounding soil, in order to reduce the earth resistance to valu e less than 1 Ohm. Pipe electrode may be in the form of 30mm diameter, 2.5m long galvanized iron pipe or solid mild-steel rods or 1.5 meter copper rods. Earthing pits shou ld be build with charcoal, salt, and soil to reduce the earth resistance value. Water should be poured into the earth pit to maintain the earth resistance.
