COMING SUMMER 2020! This very popular course by Jim Phillips is the ultimate "crash course" for electrical power system design. When it comes to electrical power system design, the National Electrical Code is just the minimum. Electrical design involves much more including an understanding of other standards, equipment, special situations and much more.
Jim often states that electrical design follows the 80/20 rule. 80% of design takes 20% of the effort but 20% of design takes the other 80%. In the course, Jim shows you both the 20% and 80%.
