Wiring is the arrangement of insulated conductors, the wires, used to carry electricity to the associated devices. In this free online course, you will learn about the essentials of wiring practice. But how do we carry electricity and signals from one place to another? This course will explain this transfer of electric current and signals, through cables. A cable is a flexible and lengthy assembly that consists of twisted or bonded wires surrounded by an insulating material. You will learn the theories and procedures for removing cable insulation, measuring wire gauges, and cable selection for an industry. You will also learn the procedures to connect the cable ends with a plug, and the techniques to crimp the cable ends. The cables in many points need to be joined by using joints, for making connections. This course will guide you through the different types of cable joints, such as straight joint, and Britannia T-joint. But how do we encapsulate and prevent oxidation of the joints? This course will teach you about the soldering process with a metal that has a lower melting point than that of the wires. Wooden structures are often required for electrical wiring. Do you want to know how to make batten joints from teak-wood? This course will guide you on the making of common batten joints such as straight or corner, but also will teach you about non-commercially available joints like cross and bridge joints.

Wiring schemes provide basic knowledge about how to make layout diagrams and wiring diagrams for installing electrical systems. This course will teach you how to make general wiring schemes that are used to take power from the main supply to the required load. Some of them are wiring cables run on the wood batten for lamps and wiring circuits for the bell and a buzzer in a PVC conduit. Following that, the course will teach you about special wiring schemes. These are used in special applications that are not accomplished by the general wiring schemes, such as controlling a lamp from two different places. But what do we use in places that have a set of rooms in which different lights are located? This course will guide you through special lighting circuits in places like hospitals, prisons, godowns, and corridors of houses and hotels. Electrical wiring is used in buildings for power distribution. Do you want to know how we estimate the required materials for building wiring? The course will explain the three-phase wiring and the seven steps involved in estimating materials.

Next, this course will teach you how we measure the electrical energy consumed for a period of time. The energy meter on the main board is explained, together with the distribution board. Following that, the course will discuss the testing in a domestic wiring installation, like the polarity and the insulation test. The necessity of correct fuses, and pipe earthing, are presented too. Also, you will learn about the megger instrument, and the safety measures while using it. In the last section, the course will delve into the automobile electric circuit. The lighting or cars, like head-lights and tail-lights, are presented too. This course will be useful to people who want to learn the principles of electrical wiring and distribution systems. Wiring must provide safety and protection from electrical shocks and fire hazards. It is very important to design and construct error-free wiring, to avoid these incidents. The construction of electrical wiring must be done only by certified electricians. So, this course will be very useful to electricians who want to gain an in-depth understanding of wiring practice essentials. So, why wait? Start learning today.
