Course detail

Electrical installations

FEKT-NEICAcad. year: 2015/2016

The main idea of the course is to introduce the students to the procedures of designing and realizing safe, harmless electrical installation in civic utility buildings. The course is oriented towards developing the students‘ practical skills.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Upon completion of the course, the students will be able to perform the following tasks:
- describe distribution networks in the Czech Republic
- define the conditions of electricity supply in the Czech Republic
- determine the method for realizing electrical installation in a civic amenities building
- specify the technique of protecting the power line against overcurrent
- determine the method of protection against electric shock
- define the risk of damage by lightning
- select a lightning protection system
- select a system of protective measures against an electromagnetic pulse
- specify a method for the realization of fire-safe electrical installation


Students wishing to enroll in the course are expected to be capable of applying Kirchhoff’s and Ohm’s laws, and they should be able to analyze the circuits in a three-phase system.

The course has been set up to teach the methods of using up-to-date elements and systems to design electrical installation in tenement or utility buildings according to international standards and Czech regulations in force. The students will be provided with an overview of the currently applied materials, conductors, apparatuses, and electrical fittings.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

The students’ participation in laboratory-based instruction is compulsory. Any absence that has been duly communicated to the teacher can be compensated by temporarily joining another study group within the course.
