Electrical Installations - Explained Simply and Clearly!

Welcome to Simple-ElectricalInstallation.com! Our mission is to explain fundamental topics of electrical engineering in a simple and understandable way, so that you can develop a solid understanding of electrical installations.

To make it easier for you to get started, we would like to first provide you with the essential basic knowledge in the field of electrical installations. It is crucial to follow the 5 safety rules when dealing with electricity to prevent accidents. Therefore, familiarize yourself extensively with the dangers of electric currents before starting work on electrical systems.

On our website, you will find comprehensive guides, practical tips, circuit diagrams, schematics, and circuits for all aspects of electrical installations - from basic knowledge to proper application. We cover everything from installation to connection to correct functional testing. Whether you need information on connecting electric stoves, lamps, power outlets, three-way switches, push buttons, CEE plugs, telephone sockets, motion sensors, dimmers, timers, contactor circuits, three-way switches, staircase switches, or other electrical devices - you will find what you need here!

For example, you may want to know the tasks performed by a residual current device (RCD) and how it helps prevent electrical accidents. Or you may be interested in the requirements and characteristics of operating devices such as power outlets or lamps, depending on their location (e.g., wet rooms, outdoor areas). You will find that not every power outlet can be installed everywhere and that certain specifications (IP protection rating) must be met depending on the location of use.

Furthermore, you will learn about the types of cables or wires used for various installations and the functions of different wire colors. It is important to choose the right cables and wires for electrical installations to ensure safe and efficient power supply.

Our goal is to provide you with a comprehensive knowledge base so that you can wire and understand electrical circuits correctly. Dive into the world of electrical circuits and discover the operating principles, schematic diagrams, and functional testing. Electrical circuits are used in electrical installations to turn electrical consumers such as lamps or power outlets on and off. There are various types of circuits such as parallel circuits and series circuits, each with different applications.


In addition, you will find detailed information on electrical contactor circuits on our website

Learn more about the correct wiring, operating principles, schematic diagrams, and functional testing of contactor circuits. These circuits are used in electrical installations to turn electrical consumers such as pumps or motors on and off. Contactor circuits are particularly common in industrial facilities.

We also provide comprehensive information on the connection of electrical control devices such as three-way switches, dimmers, motion sensors, three-way switches, and push buttons. Familiarize yourself with the correct connection, operating principles, schematic diagrams, and functional testing. Electrical control devices enable the switching on and off of electrical consumers and are therefore an essential part of electrical installations. They provide additional functions and options for controlling electric current in your home or facility.

You will also find extensive information on the connection of electrical operating equipment such as power outlets, CEE power sockets, electric stoves, lamps, telephone sockets, and much more. Learn everything about the correct connection, operating principles, schematic diagrams, and functional testing. We provide a list of the most common electrical operating equipment and help you with any questions or uncertainties you may have.


You've come to the right place! At Simple-ElectricalInstallation.com, you will find everything you need to know about electrical installations. Our extensive archive provides a wealth of information on various topics. Whether you're looking for installation guides, circuit diagrams, schematics, or practical tips - we have it all for you.


Please note: Working with electricity can be life-threatening! Electrical installations require expertise and care. Simple-ElectricalInstallation.com explicitly states that all content on our website (installation guides, circuit diagrams, and schematics) are not complete instructions for electrical systems. Work on electrical systems should always be carried out by trained professionals or supervised and inspected by them.

It is essential to strictly adhere to the regulations for electrical wiring, their installation areas, protection and safeguarding of circuits, etc., according to VDE (German electrical standards) and the technical connection guidelines (TAB) of the respective energy supplier. If necessary, relevant technical literature from bookstores or information directly from the energy supplier should be obtained.


As a general rule, after completing work on electrical systems, they must be checked and approved by a licensed electrical contracting company. Ensuring the safety and functionality of your electrical installation is crucial.

The installer is fully liable for improper or non-compliant execution of work on electrical systems in cases of personal or property damage. For this reason, a general disclaimer of liability applies to the use of our website. Your safety is our top priority.
