• Electrical loads in the buildings can be divided into three types: Electrical loads used in lighting ( illumination system) , different types
of lamps)
 Electrical loads feed the normal sockets and outlets ( used for small
electrical devices , TV, radio , washing machine, etc….)
 Electrical loads that feed the mechanical devices used in the
buildings ( elevators , heating system ,cooling system , pumps ,etc)

 estimation of the electrical loads used in
lighting
• the estimation of the electrical loads used in lighting is achieved by calculating the
sum of the lamps used in the illumination system
• there are different types of lamps : Incandescent Lamp
 Gas-discharge lamps

 Old method for Electrical Load estimation in
lightings
• this methods assumes that all the lighting system consists of either Incandescent
Lamp or florescent lamps or a mixed of them .
• in the case of using incandescent lamps :Power(watt/m2) = illuminances (Lux)/2.78
• in the case of using incandescent lamps :Power(watt/m2) = illuminances (Lux)/11.148
form the above equations it is quite clear that the using of florescent lamps can
save power so it is quite important to use them as much as possible.
This method is no longer used as it depends on approximations in addition to the
fact that there a lot of different types of lamps used these days

 example
• An office with an area of 60 m2, and the illuminance equals 500 lux, calculate the
power needed in the cases of using the incandescent lamp and florescent lamps.
Answer :• in the case of using candescent lamps :P= 60* 500 /2.78709 = 10763 watt
• in the case of using florescent lamps :
P= 60* 500 /11.148 = 2691 watt
power saving using the florescent lamps= 10763-2691= 8072 watt

 ways for energy consumption saving in lights
systems
• using lamps unites with high efficiency which is called “energy saving lamps” which
have a high efficiency per watt in addition to the fact that they lasting for long times
compared to the normal lamps
• using lamps unites with low electrical losses on the form of heat which reduce the
need of using the cooling systems for the construction.
• reducing the light losses by using lamp units with low light losses coefficient
• using lamp units with higher coefficient utilization

 Unit Power density procedure
• this method differs than the previous methods in:1- it takes into account the shape of the rooms or the space(square,rectangle, etc)
2- it assumes that the lighting system in that room or space is based on the
maximum using of the electrical power.
This method depends on dividing the building into rooms depending on the nature
of using. And for every room or space there is a tables shows base power unit
density(UPD) for that space in watt/m2

 Unit Power density procedure
Room factor : (a1)
Room factor (a1) is a number between 1.0 and 2.0 and its important comes from that it
shows the effect of the room or space shape on the lighting system . From table (2.2)
Eg 1 :- length of the room is 2.4 . Width is 3.7 and the length is 2.7. the room factor from
the table will be 1.8
Eg 2 :- length of the room is 7.3 . Width is 2.4 and the length is 3.4. the room factor from
the table will be 1.9
If the shape of the room is not regular we choose a nearest regular shape such that the
area of the regular shape is equal to the irregular shape of the room or space

Unlisted areas
• After calculating the electrical power needed for lighting the rooms it means
that we calculate the electrical power needed for lighting all the listed areas.
•For the unlisted spaces . First : the area of these spaces are calculated and it
equals the area of each flat in the building –the area of the listed spaces.
•The electrical power for the unlisted spaces is then calculated by multiplying its
area by 2.15 watt/m2
•the total electrical power for lighting the inner area will be sum of the powers
needed for listed and unlisted area.

Electrical lamps
Incandescent lamp
• the current is fed from the electrical source to the filament using the base
• when the current pass through a filament, its temperature is increased and after
a short time it is becomes glowing and emitting the light.
• carbon used to be used in the filament , but now a days , Tungstun is used in
filament and sometimes some elements such as AL, K, SI are added to Tunstun to
improve the hardness of the filament
• luminous efficiency of the incandescent lamps increases as power of that lamps
increase . For example, a lamp with power 150 watt give more illumination in a
percentage of 34% than using three 50 watt lamps.

Electrical lamps
Incandescent lamp
•The end life of the Tungstun lamps
•The melting of the filament is the indication of the end life of the Tungstun
incandescent lamps
•Due to a defect in a position on the filament , a hot-spot is formed on it, and the
temperature of the on that position at beginning will be higher than other
position on the filament.
• the high temperature makes the Tungstun to evaporate.
•All these process happened at the beginning of the lighting .
•The evaporated Tungstun is stuck on the inner surface of the bulb making a black
colour to appears on the bulb surface.(blackening).

Incandescent lamp
•The end life of the Tungstun lamps
•The blackening phenomena appears only in the Tungstun lamps where the bulb
is evacuated from the air
• To overcome the blackening phenomena , a Halogen Lamps are used where one
of the following halogen is used (Cl, Br, I, F) in addition to the inert gas. This
halogen helps to return back the evaporated Tungstun.
•they are more efficient than incandescent bulbs using only half the energy to
produce the same light output and last twice as long
•The halogen lamps are used for specific applications where a low voltage and
clear light is needed like , cinema , projectors, theaters, cars lamps , in TVs

Electrical lamps
Florescent lamps
• The current passes through the circuit heating up the filament in each electrode,
which are located at both ends of the tube.
•The heated electrodes in addition to the high voltage applied to two ends of the
lamps cauasing electrical discharge (ionizing the gas(argon)).
•The mercury vapor becomes "excited" and it generates radiant energy, mainly in
the ultraviolet range.
•This energy causes the phosphor coating on the inside of the tube to fluorescent,
converting the ultraviolet into visible light.

Comparison between incandescent lamps and CFL lamps
Eg:- compare between incandescent lamps (75 watt) and CFL lamp with power (18 ) watt . If
The price of incandescent is 0.200 JD and the price of the florescent is 4.5 JD and the price of
the kwh is 0.04 JD assuming that both kamps will work 5000 hour
No of incandescent lamps =5000/1000=5
No if CFL lamps =1
The price of the incandescent lamps =5*0.2 = 1 JD
The price of the CFL lamps = 4.5 JD
The power consumed by incandescent in 5000 hour in Kwh= 5000 *75/1000 = 375 kwh
The price of the kwh = 375 * 0.04 = 15 JD
Total for incandescent = 15+1= 16 JD
Kwh for CFL = 5000*18/1000= 90
Price of kwh = 90 *0.04= 3.6 JD
Total price for CFL = 3.6+4.5 = 8.1 JD
Saving = 16- 8.1 = 7.9 JD

Electrical installation In factories
 the electrical load in the factories depends mainly on the technological process used in the factory
As the industrial process is determined in the planning design for the factory , it is possible to use the electrical
information about the loads directly from the company that designs the machines
The electrical installation in the factories consists of the following elements:1- main distribution board
2- feeders
3- auxiliary distribution boards and circuit breakers

Electrical installation In factories
Main distribution boards
 connected with the main supply coming from the electrical distribution company and distributed from it the
feeders to auxiliary distribution boards
it consists of :1- mean switch (circuit breaker) :disconnect the distribution board from the electrical power and for protection
it can be either air switch or oil siwtch
2- bus-bars :- one bus-bar for each phase ,N ,E
3- auxiliary switches
4- instrumentation devices (power , A , V, f)

Electrical installation In factories
General Notes about electrical installation in factories
 there are different types of distribution boards either single phase or 3 phase and it can be designed to be used
outside the factory or inside it
 in chosing the distribution boards . It is better to chose a place easy to be reached and in the middle of the
electrical loads as this will reduce the material used in the installation and reduce the voltage drops
It better that the electrical installation in the factories to be clear to make the maintenance easy
The cables and the sockets should be designed to carry the short circuit current for short time
 complete information for safty procedures and the electricla loads on eachD

Electrical distribution in factories
 substations in factories
 it is recommended to choose the substation to be near the centre of electrical loads in order to reduce the cost of
the electrical netwrok and the no of circuit breaker and protection devices.
