Electrical Contracting, Second Edition is a nine-chapter text guide for the greater efficiency in planning and completing installations for the design, installation and control of electrical contracts. This book starts with a general overview of the efficient cabling and techniques that must be employed for safe wiring design, as well as the cost estimation of the complete electrical contract. The subsequent chapters are devoted to other electrical contracting requirements, including electronic motor control, lighting, and electricity tariffs. A chapter focuses on the IEE Wiring Regulations and Statutory Regulations to ensure compliance to the fundamental requirements for safety. The discussion then shifts to visual inspection and testing in accordance with the IEE Wiring Regulations. The last chapter describes the special role of the Joint Industrial Council for Electrical Installation Contracting in introducing a rational and equitable incomes policy into the industry. This text includes many worked examples and illustrations to demonstrate how the technical and commercial aspects are put into practice.

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.

Continuously in print since 1952, Modern Wiring Practice has now been fully revised to provide an up-to-date source of reference to building services design and installation in the 21st century. This compact and practical guide addresses wiring systems design and electrical installation together in one volume, creating a comprehensive overview of the whole process for contractors and architects, as well as electricians and other installation engineers. Best practice is incorporated throughout, combining theory and practice with clear and accessible explanation, all within the framework of the Wiring Regulations. Introducing the fundamentals of design and installation with a minimum of mathematics, this book is also relevant reading for all students of electrical installation courses, such as the 2330 Certificate in Electrotechnical Technology, and NVQs from City & Guilds (including 2356, 2391 and 2382 awards), as well as trainees in industry undertaking Apprenticeships and Advanced Apprenticeships. This new edition incorporates the latest thinking on sustainability and the environment and is fully up-to-date with the 17th Edition of the IEE Wiring Regulations. Illustrations have been completely updated to show current best practice and are now in full colour. Reviews of a previous edition: ‘This book has long been a favourite of mine. Its regular updating by the issue of new editions ensures it is always completely up to date with the requirements of electrical installation. It is a book that I would thoroughly recommend to any person with an involvement in our industry for it is without doubt one of the very best available, written in a clear and readily understandable manner.’ Electrical Contractor ‘Refreshingly practical. This book will prove useful to anyone involved in the design and installation of electrical systems: from the apprentice to the architect.’ Electrical Review

Handbook of Electrical Installation Practice covers all key aspects of industrial, commercial and domestic installations and draws on the expertise of a wide range of industrial experts. Chapters are devoted to topics such as wiring cables, mains and submains cables and distribution in buildings, as well as power supplies, transformers, switchgear, and electricity on construction sites. Standards and codes of practice, as well as safety, are also included. Since the Third Edition was published, there have been many developments in technology and standards. The revolution in electronic microtechnology has made it possible to introduce more complex technologies in protective equipment and control systems, and these have been addressed in the new edition. Developments in lighting design continue, and extra-low voltage luminaries for display and feature illumination are now dealt with, as is the important subject of security lighting. All chapters have been amended to take account of revisions to British and other standards, following the trend to harmonised European and international standards, and they also take account of the latest edition of the Wiring Regulations. This new edition will provide an invaluable reference for consulting engineers, electrical contractors and factory plant engineers.

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.

The modern world is so dependent on electricity that it is always around us, supporting and promoting every aspect of human life. The major attributes that make electricity the ideal source of power, for a wide variety of applications are: * Electricity is efficiently produced, transported and distributed * Electricity is easily converted into useful work, light or heat at the final destination * Electricity supply systems are very reliable and * Electricity is easily controlled. A well planned and carefully installed electrical system can be a pleasure to operate. These will reward us with many years of safe, efficient and reliable service. On the other hand a poorly designed, badly executed electrical system can be dangerous to human lives and property, unreliable and a never ending source of problems and extra expenses. Although safety is the primary objective of a good Electrical System Design, the information given in this book is not intended to be a substitute for the national or manufacturer's safety guidelines. This book presents a comprehensive coverage of Electrical Systems Design useful to the engineering degree students as well as practising engineers. A basic knowledge of electrical engineering is required to understand the concepts. Even though the current practice is to use software tools for every design process, this book provides the background information to help the users to understand how to use electricity efficiently, safely and economically.
