By Eur Ing Geoffrey Stokes, Eur Ing John Bradley(auth.)

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

It comprises crucial details at the new principles utilized to important installations or destinations, resembling toilets, swimming pool destinations, camping/caravan websites, marinas, exhibition and convey destinations, sun photovoltaic strength offer platforms, and flooring and ceiling heating structures, among others. It provides transparent reasons on inspection, checking out, certification and reporting, try out tools and try equipment, in addition to protecting:

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

those themes are addressed with pertinent legislation numbers, and an invaluable appendix lists the appropriate criteria. history counsel and labored examples are supplied the place applicable.

just like the past variations of this article, this new version might be an invaluable relief for designers, installers and verifiers of electric installations, scholars of the wishing to achieve larger knowing of the various features of electric security, and ‘duty holders’ as outlined through the electrical energy at paintings rules 1989.Content:

Example text

Further guidance in the province may be obtained from the Department of Economic Development. 1 The IEE Wiring Regulations: BS 7671 The requirements of BS 7671 are not statutory requirements but are referred to in the Electricity Safety, Quality and Continuity Regulations 2002 (as amended) as being an acceptable standard which will satisfy those statutory regulations. Additionally, the HSE considers that compliance with BS 7671 will afford compliance with the relevant aspects of the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989.

2 of BS 7671:2008 require that persons and livestock are protected against injury, and that property is protected against any harmful effects, resulting from: • a fault between live parts of circuits supplied at different voltages; • overvoltages likely to arise from atmospheric events or from switching. 2 points out that protection against direct lightning strikes is dealt with in BS EN 62305. 4 are new to Part 1 of BS 7671. The first of these regulations requires persons to be protected against injury, and property to be protected against damage, as a consequence of undervoltage and any subsequent voltage recovery.

Therefore, it follows that Parts 3–7 give greater detail of the methods of achieving the fundamental principles laid down in Chapter 13. 3, the various parts of BS 7671 giving technical requirements intended to afford compliance with the fundamental principles are • Part 3: Assessment of general characteristics; • Part 4: Protection for safety; Scope, object and fundamental principles 21 • Part 5: Selection and erection; • Part 6: Inspection and testing; • Part 7: Special installations or locations.
