Finally, there's a one-stop, problem-solving guide for every professional involved in electrical construction projects. Industrial Electrical Wiring eschews the theoretical discussions common to other texts on the market and instead focuses on such real-world issues as codes, standards, and print reading, as well as the design and implementation of actual installations. Every major element in the field is addressed in hard, pratical terms--from overcurrent protection to low-voltage terminations, electrical calculations to wiring methods, equipment fateners to electric motors.

One of the newest additions to Delmar's best-selling electrical line, Electrical Installation & Inspection uses comparative examples and step-by-step instructions to teach readers how to design and inspect electrical installations in a manner consistent the 2002 National Electrical Code (NEC®). The book begins with an introduction to basic electricity and proceeds, in logical order, through basic circuits and formulas to an examination of different types of electrical equipment and materials. Articles in the 2002 NEC® provide the framework for studying residential, commercial, and industrial electrical design applications. However, readers are urged to remember that an understanding of, and appreciation for, Code provisions is but a minimum requirement for a safe installation. Beyond "meeting Code," the author stresses the importance of electrical designs that meet end-user needs while also minimizing hazards inherent in the use of electrical energy.

Manual calculations are still extensively used and in particular are necessary for checking and verifying various software calculation design packages. It is highly recommended that users of such software familiarise themselves with the rudiments of these calculations prior to using the software packages. This essential book fills the gap between software and manual calculations. It provides the reader with all the necessary tools to enable accurate calculations of circuit designs. Rather than complex equations, this book uses extensive worked examples to make understanding the calculations simpler. The focus on worked examples furnishes the reader with the knowledge to carry out the necessary checks to electrical cable sizing software programmes. Other key features include: Updated information on 230 volt references and voltage drop under normal load conditions New sections on buried cables that take into account soil thermal conductivity, trenches and grouping, allowing readers to carry out accurate cables sizing Information and examples of steel wired armour cables, new to this edition. This includes sufficiency during short circuits and, for cables with externally run CPCs, gives unique fault conditions. Covers calculations of cross-sectional areas of circuit live conductors Earth fault loop impedances Protective conductor cross-sectional areas and short circuit conditions Short circuit protection. The last chapter combines all of the calculations of the previous chapters to enable the reader to complete an accurate design of an installation circuit under all conditions. A unique tool for detailed electrical installation trade, Electrical Installation Calculations, Fourth Edition is invaluable to electricians, electrical designers, installers, technicians, contractors, and plant engineers. Senior electrical engineering students and technical colleges, junior engineers, and contracts managers will also find this text useful.
