This subject informs students with problem of internal electric circuits in house building, with projecting of electric distribution in industrial plants, with regulations for running a cable, electric installation due to external influence, electric installation in special objects (showers, swimming pools, saunas).
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
Aim subject is introducing students with modern proceeding for processing electro technical documentation buildings and flats. Students will be able individual create electro technical documentation in referred range. During semester students creates self project of electro technical documentation specified object. Students learn effectively use as modern resources for production electro technical documentation.
Course Contents

1. Internal power distribution of electricity - the main house management, lighting, socket and technological installations communication and signaling circuits.
2. Electrical equipment and dedicated in special facilities (showers, swimming pools, saunas, caravans, etc.)
3. Specification of external influences, the degree of coverage for different environments, proper design of electrical installations by requirements of external influences.
4. Arrangements for the laying of electrical power lines. Electrical equipment - switches, sockets, switchboards, cables, etc. The requirements for lead of communication and information technologies.
5. Design and installation of electrical power distribution in industrial premises, installed power factor performance, level of electricity supply.
6. Design of artificial indoor lighting, basic concepts, lamps, lighting calculation strategies.
7. Outdoor lighting, basic concepts, lamps, lighting calculations
8. Basic requirements for the installation of regulatory and signaling devices.
9. Electronic Fire Systems (EFS). Electronic Security Systems (ESS).
10. Vertical and horizontal transport in buildings and homes. Motor installation.
11. LV connection management and free cable connections, location and involvement of measuring kits. Types of payments for electricity energy.
12. Grounding of electrical instalations and lightning protection systems.
13. Protection system against atmospheric discharge and other kinds of distress.


Each student will address the individual semester project electrical documentation specified object technology whole, etc. Students may have entered the larger project, some students will be divided into various subparts so that the teacher is strictly specified range for individual students, but students would be encouraged a concerted teamwork.

Theoretical exercise:

1. Introduction, graduation requirements, basic orientation in the technical standardization.
2. Working with electronic catalogs, sizing of cable lines, electronic scale in the motor terminals, the proposal regulated power.
3. Design of lighting systems and power distribution systems.

Laboratory exercise:
1. Electrical instalation for lightning.
2. Measurement of groounding resistance.
3. Testing of electrical appliances and electrical instalations.
