Design and build a circuit board, Electrical Engineering

Devise a "green" design to improve the electrical plan of a room in your home. How might you reduce electricity use in your home.

Initiate and plan

1. Select two rooms in your home. List the devices that require electricity in each room.

2. Explain how these devices are connected in a circuit. Include a description of the role of each of the following component: switch, fuse, electrical source, load, resitor. Summarize the information in a table.

Perform and record

1. Draw a schematic diagram that supports your explanation.

2. Design and build a circuit board that models the wiring in each room. Test your circuit board to ensure that it works.

3. Determine the maximum current draw for each room. To do this, check the size and number of fuses or circuit breakers that service the room from the distribution panel.

Analyze and Interpret

3. Alter the design of the room that uses more electricity so that it uses less electricity. Consider these criteria: - Flexibility - Cost-effectiveness - Safety

4. Draw a new schematic diagram for your "greener" room. Include at least one power bar or surge protector for all non-essential loads, and create a special label for this in your schematic diagram. Consider the types of lighting you choose, the size and type of television and/or computer monitor (if applicable), and the power requirements for the other devices

5. Prepare a summary of your greener room design. Include your schematic diagram and an explanation of your new electrical plan. Present your summary using a visual format of your choice.
