    Earthing arrangements, voltages, overvoltages, mains quality, external influences etc.
  2. Overload currents
    Protection of wiring systems against overloads, using gG fuses etc.
  3. Short circuit currents
    Calculating an LV installation, protection of wiring systems, fuse protection of wiring systems etc.
  4. Direct and indirect contact
    Fuse protection against indirect contact etc.
  5. Voltage drops
    Calculating voltage drop for cable with length, etc.
  6. Switching and isolating devices
    Installation standards IEC 60364 or NF C 15100, etc.
  7. UL and NEMA specifications
    General information about motor protection, etc.
  8. Fuse protection
    Short-circuit current cut-off, choosing “gG” and “aM” fuses, etc.
  9. Control and energy management
    Tariff meter, measurement of electric variables, energy metering, etc.
  10. Industrial communication networks
    Analogue mand digital communication, JBUS / MODBUS protocols, RS485 Bus, PROFIBUS protocol
  11. Electrical measurement
    Ferro-magnetic equipment, use of voltage transformers, power converter, copper cable losses, etc.
  12. Digital protection of networks
