in the construction field the roll of electrical engineer is
1-he has to see the basic design engineering of the project
2-detail engineering with safety factor in the design .
3-basic & detail engineering for provision of earthing pits
of electrical intallation.
4-design for illumination of different area and lux calculation.
5-cable size calculation cable scheduling &its route
selection ,over head or under ground
6-proper protection system for all electrical installation .
7-design for fire alarm &detection system &so many more
which i am not writing here
1.Ensure power supply available.save energy by disconnecting
2.ensure all electrical machines should be earthed ,because
in construction mostly related with steel structures,if any
leakage from machine then persons will get shock.
3.if work is going on outside protect machine by covering
that from rain fall.
4. make awareness to all people how to switch off power in
case of any electrical accident.
The main role of electrical engineers in construction
projects is to supervise the electricians in handling all
the electrical works considering the safety and quality
requirements. The electrical engineer in the construction
site also reads and studies the electrical plans (usually
done by electrical design engineers) and implement it in
the site and sometimes do necessary actions whether to
correct or to improve the design. They coordinate with
other electrical engineers in the implementation of the
electrical system design and also with other engineers of
different fields, such as civil and mechanical engineers,
to make the construction job easier.
As an engineer our responbilities on site is make sure that
the electrical installation should be as per IS code or
National code as applicable according to authority,proper
designing of system,maintenance view,feature extention etc.
Study of drawing and execute the work
To co-ordinate with Electrical Contractor for Electrification, Execution, Erection & Commissioning.
To provide the entire electrical solutions as per requirement.
Design for illumination of different area and lux calculation.
To check the entire work as according to approved drawings.
Handling of electrical load as per requirement.
Cable size calculation cable scheduling &its route selection ,over head or under ground.
Review Inspection and Test Plans in order to perform all required inspections and witnessing all required tests and add witness and hold points for the Clients Inspection.
Review inspection reports and records of Quality Control carried out on completed and running Project activities.
Review Clients Inspectors deliverables, analyse and resolve issues and problems emerging during the Quality Control activities. Ensure that all inspection and tests witnessed by clients
Drawing submission and get Approval from consultants
Site issues highlighting and send to consultant
Site Additional work Prepairation and send the Quotation
Check and Plan the EOT Date & schedule of the Project
Every two week once attend the site technical coordination meeting
Monthly once attend the site safety coordination meeting
Detail engineering with safety factor in the design.
Updating the Drawing depends on site condition
Mock up unit Prepairation and execution
Checking the Workmanship and material Quality as per approved make and standard work for the Right quality and standard work
Daily & Weekly work Progress Report Prepairation and Keep the Record
Preparing the Monthly work Progress Report for Claim with Measurements
Monthly LEW Tools inspection check list Prepairation and checking
Daily I conduct and maintain the tools box meeting and checking the Height work Permit (above 2m)
Preparation of Project Report for correct and Timely information for the Progress of work
Responsible to do surveys including site measurements
Responsible for Highlighting foreseen Problem & Delays in advance Escalating to the PM
Client communication and correspondence
Coordination with workers
Manpower Controlling and solve the Problem
Updating of material stock
Weekly Material Requirement to be send by email to office
Final Documentation & Billing Works
1)The main roll of Electrical Engineer in Construction
field is fully about safety,power consuming ideas and
limiting the wastage of power supply.
2)Creativity in designing new circuits which is capable of
the building design.
3)Reducing the Power consumption day by day.
Top-performing electrical site engineers have good communication skills in addition to time management and complex problem-solving abilities, according to O*Net OnLine. To perform the necessary tasks, they might use laboratory evaporators, signal generators, semi-conductor process systems, spectrometers and computer-aided design software, such as Finite Element Method.
Why we transmit the power at the voltage in the multiple of
11 or 1.1 like 11kv, 22kv, 66kv, 132kv...... some one told
me that it is due to fomr factor 1.1 of sine wave. its fine
but while transforming we can choose any voltage, so why
only multiple of 1.1 there also.......? plz tell me.
