Part 1: What is an Electrical Drawing and How is it Used?

Also known as a wiring diagram, an electrical drawing would include all the technical and electrical components of a structure systematically. The visual representation usually follows standard symbols and sets so that the electric diagram can be understood by all. It can help professionals understand the overall electrical system, how to install it, or repair it.

Although there is no rule of thumb, a standard electric diagram would include the following components:

  • The overall site plan of the structure with any electrical fittings for the external area
  • The basic floor plan of the building with the major spots and positions of the electrical components
  • The wiring diagram would include the entire electrical distribution in the system and its layout.
  • Apart from the internal layout, it also includes switches, hubs, or any other electric component.
  • Other things included in a wiring diagram are the main power, lines, line capacity, rating, fuses, grounding, generators, batteries, etc.

Since electrical drawings are pretty resourceful, they can be used in the following way:

  • It provides the basic electrical layout in any building and is the first step in the process.
  • Based on the electrical diagram, we can come up with the entire structure and provide a rough estimate to the client.
  • An electrical drawing would help in the installation of the electrical wires and the set up of the entire system.
  • Even after installation, a wiring diagram can be used in maintenance and repairing (or to calculate the load for extensions).
