This course is an introduction to the drafting and renewable energy systems concepts. Half of the course will be interpreting and creating electrical drawings. The drafting tools used will be AutoCad and Visio. The second half of the course will examine power monitoring and protective relaying. A review of work, power, and energy concepts will allow students to convert between units for mechanical, electrical, and thermal systems. To encourage the use of online resources and teamwork a power system monitoring lab is completed. The practical activities done by the student in the course reinforce the theory studied.
Registration is processed on a FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED basis. BCIT reserves the right to cancel courses. In the event of a part-time course cancellation, students will be notified at least three business days prior to the course start date.
