Throughout any construction project, there are many moving parts. The client, of course, has a say in the design and overall construction to make sure his or her objectives are accomplished. To do so, many parts of the design and construction team must work together to achieve the overall goal. This is no different for electrical engineers working on a project. Below, we will examine the many ways an electrical engineer must interface with the various teams that work on a building to create a successful project.

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.

Sustainable technology buildings and localized business parks are taking advantage of smart microgrid technology. Large power plant systems can be costly and unreliable. A smart microgrid system takes the same concepts of a large power grid design and scales everything down to accommodate a small, local business park or campus. There are many applications for a smart microgrid installation, which come with sustainable benefits. Below, we will examine how smart microgrids work and their several benefits they can bring to your next building project.
