One of the most important elements when designing a building's electrical subsystems is compliance with National Electrical CodeA(R) safety regulations. Yet, many university engineering curricula do not address this and other essential building codes. For this reason, H. Brooke Stauffer Director of Codes and Standards at the National Electrical Contractors Association, has written this informative introduction to clearly and accessibly steer beginning electrical engineers through the often confusing NECA(R) regulations. This quick guide will assist designers as they navigate the structure and organization of the NECA(R) and the way it relates to other codes and standards. Based upon the 2008 revisions to the NECA(R), the Engineer's Guide to the National Electrical CodeA(R) is also an essential reference for established engineers looking for a refresher on the NECA(R) and its impact on building codes.
This informative introduction to the NEC provides electrical engineers, both professionals and students, with invaluable insight to customary building codes. Written by the Executive Director of Standards and Safety of the NECA, H. Brooke Stauffer offers a comprehensive description of the NEC and commonly encountered building codes when designing a building's electrical subsystems. The Engineer's Guide to the National Electrical Code steers beginning electrical engineers through the complex regulations of the NEC in a clear and accessible way.
