Compliance with the National Electrical Code is a major concern for today’s engineers, designers and electricians. On the one hand, you need to keep job costs down. On the other hand, your electrical projects must meet code. And if you are an electrical inspector, you’ve got to ensure compliance with the code in a way that is fair, accurate, equitable, and consistent.

Even common applications make NEC training essential. For example, consider those tables in Article 310. Do you really understand how to size conductors? Do you understand when to use the 90 degree column and when not to? Do you know when to use Table 310.17 rather than 310.16, or 310.19 rather than 310.17? How do you apply these tables when sizing feeders for motor circuits? What about motor branch circuits? A wrong answer to any of these questions can be costly.

Now in its eighth edition, this book explains the design, installation and inspection of electrical systems in new and existing one- and two-family dwellings. This eighth edition covers the subject in detail and provides information relative to application of not only the 2011 NEC, but also Part VIII of the 2012 International Residential Code. - more
