Description

Written by a member of various national and international standardization committees, this ready reference helps practicing engineers in the design and application of low voltage networks. Structured according to the type of electrical system, including asynchronous motors, three-phase networks and lighting systems, the book covers the respective electrical and electrotechnical fundamentals, providing information on the implementation of the relevant NEC and IEC standards and leading to an overview of applications in industry. Numerous tables, diagrams and worked examples aid in the planning of electrical systems and readers can reproduce and adapt the calculations with programs available from the accompanying website.
