Electrical services are a vital component in any building, so it is necessary for construction professionals to understand the basic principle of services design. The Design of Electrical Services for Buildings aims to provide a basic grounding for students and graduates in the field. It covers methods of wiring, schemes of distribution and protection for lighting and power installations. Systems such as alarms and standby supplies are also covered. Each method is described in detail and examples of calculations are given.
For this fourth edition, the coverage of wiring and electrical regulations have been brought fully up-to-date, and the practical information has been revised.
