  • Lighting calculation
  • UPS/Inverter sizing calculation
  • Battery sizing calculation
7. Various design stages & Sequence of electrical design procedure
Concept design stage:
  • Understanding the building plans, elevations & sections
  • Gathering specific data from the utilities(Electricity board)
  • Understanding clients specific requirements
  • Assessment of the type of installation like outdoor/indoor substation(Point of supply)
  • Preparation of basis of design which should include the cost estimate.
Schematic design stage:
  • Preparation of Load calculation to arrive maximum peak demand
  • Sizing of all Equipments,cables,cable trays
  • Electrical design calculations
  • Preparation of single line schematic of electrical distribution system with metering options
  • Preparation of equipment layouts like Substation, plant rooms.
  • Preparation of lighting, small power, earthing & miscellaneous layouts
  • Preparation of technical specification
Detailed design stage:
  • Preparation of detail layouts including sectional details wherever required
  • Coordination with other services like HVAC,PHE & FF layouts
  • Preparation of bill of quantities(BOQ)
  • Issue for tender
Construction design stage:
(Generally this stage is performed by electrical Contractors)
  • Preparation of shop drawings based on the tender drawings issued by Electrical consultants for installation.
  • After installation the entire installation shall be tested & commissioned with the respective authorities.
  • As built drawings shall be prepared and handed over to client’s representative.
