Written in accordance with the 2011 National Electrical Code, this book provides readers with a comprehensive introduction to the essential elements of electrical grounding and bonding. It examines the critical concepts of calculating conductor sizes, reading and interpreting NEC tables, the use of grounded conductor connections in DC and AC systems, as well as various installations and sizing. It also includes electrical design and installation that ensures compliance with an emphasis on “Going Green”, and expanded coverage of revised Article 250 grounding and bonding requirements. The material is reader-friendly with straightforward, easy-to-understand explanations of key concepts that foster understanding. Updated full-color and dynamic illustrations augment this book to further support this thorough student- and professional-level approach to electrical grounding and bonding.
Designed to be used alongside the Code itself, McGraw-Hill’s National Electrical Safety Code (NESC) 2012 Handbook provides a rule-by-rule annotation of the NESC that clarifies potentially confusing Code text and allows you to perform your work safely and confidently. This step-by-step guide explains how to apply and meet the NESC rules for electrical supply stations and equipment, as well as overhead and underground electric supply and communications lines. Hundreds of illustrations and photos, practical examples, and concise language regarding complicated and controversial issues are included in this expert resource.
The sixth edition of Electrical Grounding has been thoroughly updated in accordance with the 2002 National Electrical Code (NEC), including a major reorganization of sections in Chapter 3 of the NEC and increased use of metric measurements. Early chapters serve as an orientation to the “what” and “why” of grounding, including explanations of the electrical theory and terminology used in Article 250 of the NEC. Subsequent chapters of the book permit readers to explore individual conductors used in the grounding system in detail, starting with the grounding electrode. Permitted materials (including metal, steel and encased concrete), installation, sizing, and potential pitfalls are addressed. Once readers have become comfortable with basic installations, the book devotes attention to special installations, such as: separately derived systems, multiple buildings or structures served by a common service, high-voltage installations, and the use of ground-fault protection. The author’s unique systematic approach has served as an effective path to true understanding of every phase of electrical grounding for countless journeyman electricians.
For those eager to improve their skills in electrical grounding and bonding, this is the book to get. Not only does it explain how and why certain grounding methods are used, but it does so in a logical way, balancing text with photos and illustrations. Cutting through the confusion of industry jargon and common misconceptions, the text guides the reader step-by-step through the language and intent of the National Electrical Code, NEC-2011. Ground-fault protection for circuit interrupters and for equipment is covered in one chapter instead of two. The coverage is uniform, easy-to-read and easy-to-locate, making chapter fourteen one of the most exciting presentations of ground-fault protection in the industry. Also, the book incorporates the metric system of measurement in accordance with the International System of Units (SI). Metric units appear first, followed by inch-pound units in parentheses. If you are serious about your knowledge and skills, your technical library is incomplete without this book!
