This candidate shall be responsible for all electrical project deliverables and associated engineering analysis and calculations, which shall include:

  • Equipment sizing, specification, and selection

  • Electrical system analysis (e.g., fault current, load flow, overcurrent device coordination, arc flash, transient motor starting, etc.)

  • Lighting system analysis

  • Generator sizing calculations

  • Generation and documentation of supporting calculations

  • Equipment layout

  • Equipment sizing, specification, and layout

  • Cross discipline coordination

  • Participation in project related meetings

  • Data acquisition to support essential design functions

  • Development of drawing packages that contain but is not limited to the following:

    • Single Line Diagrams​

    • Motor Elementary Drawings

    • Control panel schematics

    • Control panel layout drawings

    • Control System network diagrams

    • Electrical system interconnect drawings

    • Conduit and Tray layouts

    • Device location drawings

    • Grounding plans

    • Panel schedules
