Center for Occupational Research and Development, Inc., Waco, TX.; Technical Education Research Centre-Southwest, Waco, TX.
This course in electrical power and illumination systems is one of 16 courses in the Energy Technology Series developed for an Energy Conservation-and-Use Technology curriculum. Intended for use in two-year postsecondary technical institutions to prepare technicians for employment, the courses are also useful in industry for updating employees in company-sponsored training programs. Comprised of eight modules, the course is designed to provide the student with a practical knowledge of electrical power, distribution systems, and illumination systems. The students practice electrical measurement, wiring methods, illumination measurement, and circuit control and are provided with an overview of the parts of the electrical distribution system. Written by a technical expert and approved by industry representatives, each module contains the following elements: introduction, prerequisites, objectives, subject matter, exercises, laboratory materials, laboratory procedures (experiment section for hands-on portion), data tables (included in most basic courses to help students learn to collect or organize data), references, and glossary. Module titles are Efficiencies of Electrical Power Distribution Systems, Electrical Power Transmission and Distribution, Industrial Electrical Distribution, Residential Electrical Distribution, Electrical Energy Management, Fundamentals of Illumination, Light Sources, and Efficiency in Illumination Systems.
