Abstract

Electricity exists in a form that is useful to exploit, however, it will also be important to install electricity as efficiently as possible, and design of the power distribution system should be convenient so as to minimize power losses. This paper analyses the electrical service design of a Storey building using the lumen method for the lighting calculations. The purpose of this work is to present a suitable approach to electrical services design based on the provision of the Institution of Electrical Engineers (lEE) Regulations, which includes lighting, power, distribution boards schematics. The results of the whole analysis and design was illustrated with AutoCAD application. This work gives a direct approach from design of the electrical services to the installation stage. The results of the calculations in the design helps the designer to make vital decisions such as types of luminaries, sizes of cables and nominal ratings of protective devices required by each circuit and by the entire installation in line with appropriate standards and regulations.

Keywords: Design, AutoCAD, lumen, IEE, Electrical, lighting
