Clark Maness on Electrical Systems for Engineers
For civil and environmental engineers in the water and wastewater industry, electrical design is sometimes an afterthought when designing water and wastewater conveyance and treatment systems. Lack of understanding of power and electrical systems can lead to mistakes that cause inefficient use of design time or, in the worst-case scenario, construction mistakes in the field. Clark Maness, PE will give an overview of the basics of power and electrical systems, as well as case study examples of how power and electrical systems directly affect the design and operation of water and wastewater treatment and conveyance systems.
Clark Maness, PE is a Utilities Engineer whose work focuses on pump station analysis and design, water and sewer conveyance design, and water and wastewater treatment design. He is also WithersRavenel’s lead for lift station monitoring projects, providing clients with detailed hydraulic and electrical information to benchmark their systems and verify that they are performing as designed.
This preview is part of our AWWA Speaker Preview series, which highlights the WithersRavenel staff invited to speak at the 2018 NC AWWA-WEA Annual Conference. For more previews, follow along during the week of October 29 through November 2, or click here to see all of the posts in the series.
