Electrical installations are the crucial aspect of the development phase of any structures or construction of any public or residential buildings.
During the construction phases, various kinds of electrical appliances and electrical wiring need to be installed into the infrastructure to make it useable.
The first and foremost need is the installation of electrical wiring, cable lines, power lines and control consoles.
The overall work of electrical installations might be completed in multiple stages.
The first stage however, involves installations of structure, compartments and fasteners etc. that are required to support the actual electrical installations.
There are several equipment and other electrical gadgets that serve as the base for further installations such as sockets, switches and other conduits needed for electrical wiring.
There are special work places designated to the work of preparing the electrical wiring.
Assembling of the electrical installations and the fabrication of conduits necessary for the wiring are done in those special workplaces usually known as electrical installation prefabrication shops.
Such electrical wiring is put through a thorough testing and inspection to ensure the safety standards for design and installation.
Allowed wires and cables types and sizes are selected according to the voltage and electric current capability of the circuit.
Furthermore, various other factors such as the suitable temperature range, moisture levels, exposure to chemicals and sunlight are also taken into account.
To make sure that the wiring and associated electrical devices are designed, selected and installed so that they are safe for use, they have to meet the specific safety standards set by concerned authorities.
These standards may vary by locality, country or region.
There are various methods for installing the wiring systems.
These methods usually depend on the intended use of the circuit, the type and size of building, local or national regulations, and the type of environment in which the wiring will operate.
Wiring systems in homes and domestic properties are simple, usually with low power requirements and their building structure and layout seldom requires changing.
On the other hand, heavy industries have more demanding requirements for wiring and the general layout.
All the wires and cables have ratings which specify their circuit voltage, temperature, and environmental conditions in which they can be used.
The maximum amount of current a wire or cable can carry safely depends on the installation conditions.
There are different kinds of cables which are used in electrical installations.
The earliest form of cables used was armored cables which consisted of two conductors which were insulated with rubber in a flexible metal sheath.
As the time passed, PVC insulation and jackets were introduced in the markets which were used especially for residential wiring.
The most basic form of cable has two insulated conductors which are twisted together to form a unit.
Such cables with two or more conductors are used for low voltage signal and control appliances.
There are also numerous kinds of conductors used in electrical wiring such as copper conductors, aluminum conductors etc.
With increasing globalization and mobility of people, an electrical installer faces rapidly expanding opportunities and challenges.
For a talented and experienced electrician, there are many commercial and international opportunities.
However, these opportunities require the electrician to be able to understand and work with diverse and vastly varying cultures and trends.
In such a way, the diversity of skills which are associated with electrical installations is also likely to flourish.
