Description
Walking you step by step through an industrial building, ELECTRICAL WIRING INDUSTRIAL, 16th Edition, equips you with the basic knowledge and skills you need to safely install wiring systems. This text is written in easy-to-read language and packed with vivid photographs and illustrations to help you understand key concepts. It is also thoroughly updated to reflect the 2017 National Electric Code, the standard for layout and construction of electrical systems. Plenty of example problems and detailed solutions clearly illustrate how the concepts apply to real-world situations. In addition, a set of building blueprints helps you see how each chapter's concepts are applied in an actual industrial building.
Benefits
  • Completely up to date to fully conform to the 2017 National Electrical Code.
  • Chapters illustrate how to apply contemporary 2017 NEC® requirements for power distribution, conductor sizing, motor connection, power factor correction, and lighting in industrial settings.
  • Extended coverage of motor installation has been incorporated.
  • Coverage of service entrances has been expanded.
  • Additional information concerning transformers is now included.
  • Detailed new instruction explains how to select conductors for equipment.
  • Additional information on motor control symbols has been added.
  • Real-World Approach: Extremely practical, the chapter on motor installation presents detailed instruction on how to size conductors, overloads, short circuit protective devices, and motor starter sizes in a way that relates to on-the-job situations.
  • Comprehensive Coverage: The text includes different types of three-phase services, such as wye, delta, wye with grounded neutral conductor, delta with B phase ground, and delta high leg services.
  • Essential Motor Controls: A full chapter is devoted to basic motor controls as well as Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC).
  • Illuminating Visuals: Detailed photographs, diagrams, and illustrations help clarify explanations of critical industrial electricity concepts.
  • Practical Math: ELECTRICAL WIRING INDUSTRIAL covers specific math skills students will need to succeed on the job without overwhelming them with unnecessarily complicated concepts.
