Overview

Written for industrial wiring courses at two-year community and technical colleges, ELECTRICAL WIRING INDUSTRIAL, 16th Edition, walks learners step by step through an industrial building -- equipping them with all the basics for installing wiring systems. A set of blueprints included with the text enables students to apply chapter concepts to an actual industrial building as they progress through the book and continue to build upon their news skills. The new edition also includes expanded coverage of motor installation, service entrances, transformers, motor control symbols, and how to select conductors for equipment. ELECTRICAL WIRING INDUSTRIAL, 16th Edition completes Cengage's NEC-based Electrical Wiring series, which includes ELECTRICAL WIRING RESIDENTIAL and ELECTRICAL WIRING COMMERCIAL. All books in this series have been thoroughly updated to reflect the 2017 National Electric Code, the standard for layout and construction of electrical systems.

Stephen L. Herman, Lee College (retired)

Stephen L. Herman is a retired electrician and teacher with more than 30 years of experience to his credit. A seasoned author, his reader-friendly textbooks on electricity and mathematics are popular with students and instructors alike. For two decades Mr. Herman was lead instructor for the Electrical Technology Curriculum at Lee College in Baytown, Texas, where he received an Excellence in Education Award from the Halliburton Education Foundation. He also taught at Randolph Community College in Asheboro, N.C., for nine years and helped establish an electrical curriculum for Northeast Texas Community College in Mount Pleasant, Texas. His additional publications include ELECTRIC MOTOR CONTROL, ELECTRICITY AND CONTROLS FOR HVAC/R, INDUSTRIAL MOTOR CONTROLS, UNDERSTANDING MOTOR CONTROLS, ELECTRONICS FOR ELECTRICIANS, ALTERNATING CURRENT FUNDAMENTALS, DIRECT CURRENT FUNDAMENTALS, ELECTRICAL STUDIES FOR TRADES, ELECTRICAL PRINCIPLES, EXPERIMENTS IN ELECTRICITY FOR USE WITH LAB VOLT EQUIPMENT, THE COMPLETE LABORATORY MANUAL FOR ELECTRICITY, and PRACTICAL PROBLEMS IN MATHEMATICS FOR ELECTRICIANS.
