We return to our series on the anatomy of a conductor to discuss the basic factors considered by the electrical professional in sizing the conductor. Anatomy of a Conductor Part 1Read More >
A while ago, we started a discussion on the conductor. It seems like a relevant topic to re-consider in a multi-part series.
In analyzing the power distribution system in a building, the electrical engineer and designer can think of the panelboard as the heart, the conductor as the veins and arteries, and the electrical power as the blood. Continuing this analogy, the important characteristics of the conductor include whether it is fat or skinny, thickly or thinly dressed in insulation, and multicolored or monochromatic for phase and ground/neutral conductors respectively.
Take a trip to beautiful Orange Beach, Alabama over Memorial Day Weekend to join the Engineering Societies of Alabama and Mississippi for their summer convention (May 26 – 28).Read More >
To understand the National Electrical Code (NEC), one must be aware of the electrical engineering fundamentals. Let’s start with the circuit.
Not correctly calculating the Total Electrical Load compromises the electrical design of the Power Distribution System in a facility. Here are a few horror stories illustrating this point.Read More >
