About

Welcome! In this site I attempt to discuss electrical engineering in simple ways. More articles of electrical engineering will appear in course of time. I am trying hard to speed up the process. Yes, I have re-organised the articles by means of Top Menu. This will help the users to easily find the articles.  I hope that both the students and practicing engineers will benefit more from it. The users who may find the articles in chronological order more suitable may find it in the archive(left bar)  Your valuable suggestions is highly appreciated.

I have a design/construction question I need some help with. In the 35+ years as being an Owner/architect I have never been asked about "phased rotation" during design or construction. I have been a University Architect and now Director of Facilities for a department of correction and have built entire facilities at one time and/or added buildings to an existing campus setting without ever stating the requirement(s) for 'phased rotation' or indicated what the current campus 'phased rotation' is. We are about to finish a 23 building complex and the housing buildings are clock-wise and the support buildings are anti-clock-wise (I think I have this stated correctly).
My question is does this matter? Is there a down side to the maintenance staff with the two different 'phased rotations' at the same site? Is there a standard of care that would require the designer to state the phase rotation issue in their design documents? Should I as owner provided the required standard/direction for the new campus or for what the existing buildings have within an existing campus?

Sorry about my lack of understanding and how to phrase my questions, but as I said, I have never been asked this question before.

Thanks for any help you can provide.
