Overview

Completely updated to reflect the 2017 National Electrical Code®, ELECTRICAL GROUNDING AND BONDING, 5th Edition, features complete, current coverage of grounding and bonding requirements in both Article 250 and Chapter 5 of the NEC®. The detailed explanations, real-world examples, and vibrant, full-color illustrations help readers master and apply key electrical concepts, such as calculating conductor sizes, reading and interpreting NEC tables, using grounded conductor connections in DC and AC systems, managing installations and sizing, and applying "green" practices for energy efficiency and environmental sustainability. Ideal for students in degree programs, professional training, and apprenticeships such as those administered by the Independent Electrical Contractors and the electrical training ALLIANCE (formerly NJATC courses).
