Book Description

20 May 2008
This book provides step-by-step guidance on the design of electrical installations, from domestic installation final circuit design to fault level calculations for LV/large LV systems.

Apprentices and trainees will find it very helpful in carrying out the calculations necessary for a basic installation. It has also been prepared to provide a design sequence, calculations and data for a complete design to be carried out. It is intended to include all necessary cable and equipment data to carry out the calculations. Consultants will be able to check the calculations of their design packages.

It includes calculations and necessary reference data not found in the design packages, such as cable conductor and sheath temperatures and allowances for harmonics.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not good enough 25 Feb 2010
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
Whilst this is a good publication, there are far too many errors in this publication, especially in calculations. Examples are also very basic. It's a real shame this book wasn't properly proofread before publication.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truely useful 11 Mar 2014
Format:Spiral-bound|Verified Purchase
This is my go to book for all electrical installations that need designing (i.e. not standard circuits).
It is a must for C&G 2396. It contains all the normall stuff; current capacity, volt drop, loop impedance, disconnection times, diversity etc. but also Harmonic currents, Let through energy, Adiabatic equations, Temperature corrections, Discrimination, Armour or containment as CPC. Power freq fault/stress voltage.
Good descriptions, clear calculations and good examples.
