  3.       Wiring of simple light circuit for controlling light/fan point (PVC conduit wiring).
  4.       Wiring of light/fan circuit using Two way switches (Staircase wiring). 
  5.       Wiring of fluorescent lamps and light sockets (6 A). 
  6.       Wiring of Power circuit for controlling power device (16A socket)
  7.       Godown wiring / Tunnel wiring
  8.      Wiring of power distribution arrangement using single phase MCB distribution board with ELCB, Main switch and Energy meter.
  9.      Measurement of voltage, current, resistance, inductance, and capacitance in a given RLC circuit using LCR meter and Multimeter.
  10.       Measurement of voltage, current and power in single phase circuit using voltmeter, ammeter and wattmeter. 
  11.      Calculate the power factor of the circuit. 
  12.      Wiring of backup power supply including inverter, battery and load for domestic installations.
  13.      Demonstration and measurement of power consumption of electric iron, mixer grinder, single phase pump, exhaust fan, etc.
