Written in accordance with the 2005 National Electrical Code®, this new book provides readers with a comprehensive introduction to the essential elements of electrical grounding and bonding. It examines the critical concepts of calculating conductor sizes, reading and interpreting NEC® tables, the use of grounded conductor connections in DC and AC systems, as well as various installations and sizing. Material is reader-friendly and is accompanied by straightforward, easy-to-understand explanations of key concepts that foster understanding. A functional use of color and dynamic illustrations augments the book and further supports this thorough student- and professional-level approach to electrical grounding.

Product Benefits:

  • clear and specific explanations show readers how to calculate a conductor size, as well as how to read and interpret NEC tables
  • important features such as objectives at the beginning of each chapter and review questions at the end reinforce key concepts and principles
  • attention-grabbing four-color artwork engages readers in the material, facilitating learning
