IEEE PES Malaysia Chapter Supported Industrial Talk on “Energy Delivery System – Achieving Good Electrical Connections”
The talk entitled ‘Energy Delivery System – Achieving Good Electrical Connections’ was conducted on 22 March 2017 at UCSI University. Mr Albert Tan is the General Manager from Conway, who presented the talk on behalf of Mr Ng Choon Guan. In his talk, he described a good electrical connection is able to conduct current safely at low temperature, with energy saving, and can last for many years. There are three factors to determine a good connection: (1) right connector, (2) crimping tools and dies, (3) workmanship. There are two types of connectors: copper and aluminum. The copper is of ETP (Electrolytic Tough Pitch) grade with conductivity of 99%. The aluminum is of the type Electrical Grade Aluminum (AL1050/1350) with conductivity of 60% I.A.C.S. All the connectors must follow the Malaysia Standards. Example of Malaysia Standards are MS 1540:2015, MS 1779:2005, MS 1838:2005, MS 2584:2014, MS 2654:2015. A good connection should have a lower temperature in the lug than the wire temperature. This talk is compulsory for all Electrical Engineering students. They are required to fill in the Survey Form after the talk. The talk was attended by 59 students and 5 lecturers
