Avoiding the arcs and sparks

Avoiding the arcs and sparks with David Bradley

  • David Bradley’s talk investigates the methods of connecting Critical Loads to bus-bars.  One method of connection is done using Open Channel Busway systems, which gives the user the ability to access power anywhere along the bus-bar.  The access points are either easily fitted tap-off units or traditional Power Distribution Units.


  • David will then follow the LV power train through to MV.  He will be looking at integration of both the Switchgear and Bus-bar.  This combination allows manufacture as one completely integrated and tested system.  He will also look at the advantages of ‘skids’ and pre–fabrication.


  • Finally he will look at the benefits of BIM (Building Information Modelling) and how it helps in the design process.  David will be using Revit® software in his demonstration of BIM.  Revit’s powerful tools use intelligent model-based process to plan, design, construct and manage buildings and infrastructure.

David Bradley is a member of both the IET and CIBSE whose career spans 28 years in Electrical Engineering with the majority of his time spent with Schneider Electric.  He is currently working at E+I Engineering; a leading provider of Electrical Switchgear and Power Distribution Systems.
