Electrical Wiring Industrial 14th Edition is an ideal resource for anyone in the industrial electricity industry. It is fully updated to reference the 2011 National Electrical Code and guides readers step-by-step through the wiring of an entire industrial building. Electrical Wiring Industrial 14th Edition has a practical, straightforward approach that begins by covering the tasks and responsibilities facing today's professional industrial electricians, including: installation of electrical service; power and lighting; special new construction systems; changeovers from old systems; planning for growth and increased capacity; and periodic maintenance procedures.
- Photographs, diagrams, and illustrations add clarity to explanations of critical concepts.
- Includes added coverage on determining the grounding requirements for a building location.
- Includes extended coverage on how wire size is determined.
- Examples depict the application of the 2011 National Electrical Code requirements to power distribution, conductor sizing, motor connection, power factor correction, and lighting requirements.
- Math concepts are clearly explained at a basic level that provides precisely the skills needed to succeed on the job
Specific references to the 2011 National Electrical Code throughout the book shows readers how to incorporate codes and principles into everyday practice and procedures. A complete set of industrial building plans is also included, offering readers opportunities for hands-on practice in interpreting and applying Code requirements to sitework, feeder bus systems, panelboards, fiber optics, harmonics, hazardous locations, and more.
From the Preface
Electrical Wiring - Industrial is intended for use in industrial wiring courses at two-year community and technical colleges. The text walks the reader step by step through an industrial building, providing the basics on installing industrial wiring systems. An accompanying set of plans at the back of the book allows the student to proceed step by step through the wiring process by applying concepts learned in each chapter to an actual industrial building, in order to understand and meet requirements set forth by the National Electrical Code.
The fourteenth edition of Electrical Wiring - Industrial is based on the 2011 National Electrical Code. The National Electrical Code is used as the basic standard for the layout and construction of electrical systems. To gain the greatest benefit from this text, the learner must use the National Electrical Code on a continuing basis.
In addition to the accurate interpretation of the requirements of the National Electrical Code, the successful completion of any wiring installation requires the electrician to have a thorough understanding of basic electrical principles, a knowledge of the tools and materials used in installations, familiarity with commonly installed equipment and the specific wiring requirements of the equipment, the ability to interpret electrical construction drawings, and a constant awareness of safe wiring practices.
Electrical Wiring - Industrial builds upon the knowledge and experience gained from working with the other texts in the Delmar Cengage Learning electrical wiring series an related titles. The basic skills developed through previous applications are now directed to industrial installations. The industrial electrician is responsible for the installation of electrical service, power, lighting, and special systems in new construction, for the changeover from old systems to new in established industrial buildings, for the provision of additional electrical capacity to meet the growth requirements of an industrial building, and for periodic maintenance and repair of the various systems and components in the building.
