Low-voltage power systems are integrated power systems in buildings that can run on either AC or DC current. The ranges of a low-voltage system are anything less than 49 volts for AC and anything less than 120 volts for DC. Comparatively, a normal voltage system ranges from 50 - 1000 volts for AC and anywhere from 120 to 1500 volts for DC. Low-voltage systems are intended to run specific applications and can end up saving energy and money.

You might expect an artist or a photographer to keep a portfolio of his or her past projects and works. When going to a new client or potential job interview, the portfolio helps show what the artist is capable of. Having an engineering portfolio is no different. Putting together a portfolio can help you get your engineering certificate or even your next promotion. Below, we take a closer look at what should be included in an engineering portfolio.

An arc flash occurs when electricity jumps between two points in an electrical circuit. You may see this when you flip a light switch in a dark room. On a small scale, arc flashes are harmless. However, when arc flashes occur on large electrical systems or on industrial electric machinery, arc flashes can be quite dangerous and even deadly.

In past years, incandescent and fluorescent lighting was the steadfast option for commercial buildings. Although these lights ultimately achieve the goal of providing ample lighting in large spaces and are energy efficient, they are slightly more expensive to utilize than traditional lighting solutions. But because of its potential payoff benefits, LED lighting is a great alternative lighting option. Many companies are quickly making the switch to LED lighting because they are energy efficient, long lasting, and less damaging. Below, we will dive deeper into the advantages of switching to LED lighting.

Gausman & Moore always encourages its employees to continually strengthen their professional skills. It shows initiative when a person wants to become better at their job, while also learning how to become an effective leader. Two G&M employees from our Roseville office, Madeline Arpin (Electrical Engineering) and Chue Yang (Electrical Engineering), demonstrated this initiative by participating in the Illuminating Engineering Society Fundamentals Anchorof Lighting class.

When energy from the sun is converted into usable energy, it is done through the science of the photovoltaic process. This process is what most people are referring to when they think of solar energy. Renewable energy sources are becoming more popular by the day as more buildings, both commercial and residential, are turning toward alternative energy. So what exactly are photovoltaics, and how does this science work?

A feasibility study involves taking actions and asking questions to establish whether a project idea, plan, or thought is likely to succeed. An effective project feasibility study will guide you on whether it’s feasible to proceed with the idea, refine it, or even scrap it altogether. As a building owner, making a decision on projects such as electrical, mechanical, or piping updates can seem overwhelming, and that’s where professional engineering firms like Gausman and Moore come in.

The general purpose of a commissioning plan is to give direction for the entire construction process. It basically acts as a road map for entire construction team. It lays out roles and responsibilities of individuals and teams, includes lines of communication and reporting, provides a resolution process for issues, and provides overall coordination.

Unsure if your building’s HVAC system is performing optimally? Oftentimes in existing buildings, HVAC systems can begin to underperform, costing you money. Along with conducting performance tests on existing HVAC systems, Gausman and Moore runs performance tests on every one of our new construction projects. Therefore, following new building construction, engineers at Gausman and Moore run various tests to ensure all mechanical systems are running correctly and efficiently.

Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems provide building heating and cooling, and more modern-day HVAC systems are starting to use hydronic piping to provide newly constructed buildings’ heating and cooling needs. For this type of work, two main system configurations are possible: two-pipe systems or four-pipe systems.
