By Geoffrey Stokes, John Bradley

This best-selling textual content has been revised to mirror the necessities of the 17th version of the IEEWiring laws (BS 7671: 2008).

It comprises crucial info at the new ideas utilized to big installations or destinations, resembling bogs, swimming pool destinations, camping/caravan websites, marinas, exhibition and exhibit destinations, sunlight photovoltaic energy provide platforms, and ground and ceiling heating structures, among others. It provides transparent motives on inspection, trying out, certification and reporting, try out tools and try out tools, in addition to masking:

  • electricity, the legislation, criteria and codes of perform;
  • assessment of common features;
  • protection opposed to electrical surprise, thermal results, overcurrent, undervoltage and overvoltage;
  • isolation and switching;
  • the universal ideas of apparatus choice;
  • switchgear, protecting units and different apparatus;
  • wiring platforms (including the exterior impacts on them and cable set up methods);
  • protective conductors, earthing and protecting bonding;
  • supplies for protection prone;
  • the smaller deploy, and;
  • specialised installations, comparable to outdoors lights, installations in church buildings, multi-occupancy blocks of residences.

those themes are addressed with pertinent rules numbers, and an invaluable appendix lists the appropriate criteria. heritage suggestions and labored examples are supplied the place acceptable.

just like the past versions of this article, this new version could be an invaluable reduction for designers, installers and verifiers of electric installations, scholars of the wishing to realize greater figuring out of the various elements of electric defense, and ‘duty holders’ as outlined by way of the electrical energy at paintings rules 1989.

The hazards envisaged are burns, electric shock, injury from mechanical movement, fire and explosion, attendant upon the generation, transformation, transmission, distribution or use of electricity. The requirements apply to all work undertaken from the introduction of the regulations on 31 January 2003. The provisions are not retrospective, except that the new requirements will need to be met when material alterations are carried out to existing works. The regulations cover, for example, such matters as definitions, voltage ranges and limits, neutral continuity and earthing, underground cables, overhead lines, safety and reliability, maximum voltages, limits on supply voltages, protective measures, inspection, enclosed spaces and consumers’ installations.

1 summarizes some of the statutory documents relating to electrical installations and serves only as a quick reference. A rigorous commentary and analysis of the implications of these statutory regulations is given in Electrical Safety and the Law by Ken Oldham Smith (see Bibliography) and published by Blackwell Science. References to a British Standard Code of Practice (CP) are intended only to bring to the designer’s (and installer’s and verifier’s) attention that the requirements of the CP need to be met in addition to those embodied in BS 7671.
