## Transformer problem

Trouble transfo I bought a transformer 220V 12V 150VA to connect the 4 spots 12v / 20W integrated to my kitchen furniture. Once the connection is complete nothing happens. With the help of a tester, I realize that I have only 6v out of the transformer ??? Where can my problem come from, HS transformer (knowing that I tried with another and same problem), HS tester, HS spot...?

## Connect a garage to the board

Connecting a garage to the panel We have a garage independent of the house that we want to connect to the electrical panel. How does one calculate the section of the cable that will supply the electrical panel of the garage (distance between home and garage: 20 m). For the section itself, it all depends on the intensity needed in the garage.

## Electrical kit installation

Electrical installation kit Do you know a free (free) drawing software to make plans for houses, electrical diagrams, sanitation, etc...? Can you give me the details of companies that make electric installations in kits, according to the plans that are sent to them?

## Electrical outlets per room

Electrical outlets per room Could you give me the amount of electrical outlets required in one dwelling per room (bedroom, kitchen, dining room, etc.). The standard NF C 15-100 provides: - 5 comfort outlets in the minimum stay (and 1 per 4 m2); - 3 comfort sockets in the rooms; - 6 outlets in the kitchen including: 4 above the worktop + 1 cooking circuit + 1 dishwasher circuit; - 1 comfort socket in the bathroom; - 1 comfort grip in the entrance.

## Separate electrical panels

Separate electrical panels I am working on the floor of my house to make bed and breakfast. I decided to supply electricity to each room by a separate board. A consultant from a big DIY store told me that I was not allowed to deport another painting.

## Standalone electricity

Autonomous electricity If I have an autonomous production of electricity (small wind turbine, photovoltaic panels, small turbine...) that fully supports my needs, do I necessarily have to connect to the electricity transmission network or do I have the possibility to live independently? You can "live independently", but you will not benefit from the indirect subsidy linked to the purchase / resale of electricity.

## Formula "work objectives"

Formula "objectives work" Hello Christian, I currently have a very old electric heating system namely toaster, or battery (from 1975) I consumed 8 KW from January to April 2007 electricity. So I want to change this installation and look at what is happening on the market: electric heating (radiant, radiating, coolant, soft heat) or PAC Air / Air and I am completely lost because when we bring craftsmen for quotes, each sells us what he wants to sell... and everyone has his opinion on the matter.

## Lightning and electric board

Lightning and switchboard I live in the Pilat, a stormy region and since my installation, whenever there is a storm, my electric switchboard trips. I put the problem to professionals but the opinions diverge: some recommend me a surge arrester, others to increase the power of my circuit breaker 63 A calibrated at 0.030 A.

## Solar panels and sanitary water

Solar panels and domestic water I have to change my water heater. Can I replace electricity with a solar panel? Yes, you can fully power a storage water heater with solar panels. It should have an area of ​​3 to 5 m2 depending on the region. This installation will provide 50 to 70% of the energy for a cumulus of 200 liters for 4 people knowing that the average consumption of hot water is 50/60 liters per person per day.

## Wind turbine for private

ÉOlienne pour particulier Is it possible to install a wind turbine around a house lost in the countryside? The power required by the wind turbine for a normal house is 2 to 5 kw. You need: • a mat, the machine, an inverter, a regulator, a battery and the wiring. • a building permit (town hall, DDE) if the mat exceeds 12m in height (many wind turbines operate with a mast of 12m); • it is preferable to have the neighbors' agreement (any discomfort by sight); • good exposure to the wind depending on the region and terrain The equipment and installation are subsidisable from 70 to 95% depending on the region, but EDF is not obliged to buy energy as for photovoltaic panels.
