INTRODUCTION Electrical component is the component that is needed to generate, transmit, distribute and consume the electric power

. These elements consist of a few devices such as inductor, resistor, capacitor, conductor, circuit breakers and timer. Such fittings are also collectively known as accessories since they are seen as the accessory to the wiring which is the main substance of the wiring installation. Familiarity with electrical wiring accessories is an important provision beside an awareness of and strict adherence to the provisions of the National Electrical Code (NEC). Beside that, there also a regulation which are embedded for safeguard and guarantee which is known as the IEE Wiring Regulations (BS 7671) that is basically a set of recommendation dealing with the safe design, construction, inspection and testing of low voltage installation of the wiring accessories.

OBJECTIVE 1. To determine the specific purpose and function of each electrical accessories such as copper bush, inspection tee, trunking jointer, copper bridging, terminal box and etc. 2. To review and discuss all the functions of electrical wiring accessories and identify the types of electrical devices in building. 3. To find out schematic diagram of fluorescent lamp circuit and its function.

No periodic maintenance No periodic maintenance is one of the causes that may bring problem to the wiring component in the building. India) 2. Improper Wiring Method The electrical wiring method in this picture is clearly one example of improper wiring method that can bring hazardous and harmful to the people living nearby. Therefore.PROBLEM RELATED 1. (Delhi. This situation can be worst if there is lightning struck at the wire or even huge flood occur at the place. it also can bring damage to the building or to human being due to electrical fire or injury to persons by an electric shock. In addition. Furthermore. it is crucial for us to conduct periodic maintenance constantly to ensure that the wiring system stays (Poor Maintenance) according to the code compliant. There is absolutely no insulator or any wiring cover to cover the wire. I think that the authority at that area should look into this matter and provide good safety for the people there. Beside that. I doubt there are no lightning arrestor installed their. Page | 9 .

Page | 10 . For instance if the place requires the conduit that can be bend. it is crucial to learn the electrical accessories in electrical components and their functions. not all of the same types of electrical accessories can be used. In short. Another example is that for the component which uses a lot of cables.CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION In brief. trunk joint should be used instead of conduit because it can cater more wires as compare to the normal metal conduit. perhaps the problem is too complicated or complex. in cases where the problems are minimal we as civil engineer can solve it as we have sufficient knowledge of it. But. long bend should be used since it can be bend into the required condition. we might have to ask for the expert help. By that. Nevertheless. it is also important for us to understand more about the function of electrical wiring accessories in the building. For some electrical wiring and component. we will enable to know more how the particular system operates and in case of any malfunction we will know the source of the problem.
