Series and Street Lighting

SKU: TDSSL00CENDuration: 60 Minutes

Series and Street Lighting is designed to familiarize participants with electrical street lighting systems that use series alternating current (AC) circuits. The components and operation of series street lighting circuits are discussed, as well as how to identify some common street lighting circuit faults. To obtain maximum advantage from this course, participants should have an understanding of basic electrical theory and the components and operation of distribution systems. They should also be familiar with circuit and wiring diagrams. At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to describe the design and operation of series street lighting circuits and the components that make up a series street lighting system. They should also be able to describe basic troubleshooting procedures for determining the cause of a fault in a series street lighting circuit.
