Installation : After coming up with the optimal design solution the next step is the installation process. It begins with the instructions provided within the design plan. The engineer must make sure that all the connectors, conductors and resistors are properly connected in the series. The wires with appropriate gauges must be used to connect different components within the series. As mentioned above, each component contributes towards impedance so the overall output must remain at an optimal level so the voltage drop can be reduced.
Repair & Maintenance : When the installation is finished it is necessary to execute any concurrent preventive repair or maintenance programs. Additionally, consistent maintenance must be carried out for ensuring excellent performance. Such maintenance programs also make sure that all repairs are carried out before there are any chances of damage occur. As per the NEC and Chicago Building Code, these repair and maintenance programs should be scheduled and carried out on an annual basis.
Another important point to consider here is that the records of all the past maintenance and repair programs should be preserved to trace any sources of the issue at hand. Any troubleshooting guides must be immediately referred to if there is any issue identified. Once all the repair and maintenance programs are completed, run the verification process again to check for any prevailing issues. The electrical engineer must make sure to record all the readings and compare them with the set benchmarks on a frequent basis.
Damage control : Damage control is critical in almost all stages for the purpose of ensuring the integrity of all the electrical circuits and systems. Conducting tests at various stages ensures that everything is working according to the plan. Most of the issues associated with voltage drops have two causes: either the components are not connected adequately or the components don’t meet the required specifications for a particular electrical network. There might be a case of any physical damage that has occurred due to the wearing or recent repairs. Wetness and moisture can also physically wear the components or conductors over time.
There are two different approaches to this perspective. If the inspection is needed to be done on an existing electrical network then voltage drops are assessed and evaluated within the network. On the other hand, if a new electrical network is required then design services are needed and for this, all objectives and goals are set before working with the system design initiates. It is important that all the requirements are noted down and understood. Both in the case of inspection and designing, it is important that the system must comply with all the rules and regulations from the NEC and Chicago Building Code. Furthermore, during the design process, all budgetary limitations must also be kept in consideration.
Additionally, electrical engineers must also ensure that all the wiring and equipment are adequately installed. They have to make sure that place, where all the proceedings will begin should be clean and all the power sources must remain adequately energized. There shouldn’t be any moisture at all either before or during the entire process.
Designing : The next step is of designing in this voltage drop calculation process. If the electrical system has failed the requirements in the inspection, then it is necessary for the electrical engineer to redesign it, based on the new requirements. Additionally, if the entire system needs redesigning then it should be done according to the code and must also focus on the goals set by the client within the set budget. If there are a few components that need to be readjusted, the engineer should go for it to keep the project under time and budgetary constraints.
