This guide is written for electrical engineers who have to design, select electrical equipment, install the equipment and inspect or maintain electrical installations low voltage in compliance with international standards of the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). ” What technical solution guarantees that are all relevant safety standards met? ” This question has been a permanent Perguia for the preparation of this document.
It is an international standard, such as IEC 60364 “Low Voltage Electrical Installations” widely observe specific standards to ensure the safety and proper functioning of operation of all types of electrical installations series. As the standard should be comprehensive, and must be applicable to all types of devices and technical solutions used worldwide, the text of the complex Ices standards, and are not presented in a ready order use. The rule can not be regarded as a workbook, but only as a reference document.
The purpose of this guide is to provide a clear, practical and step-by-step explanation for the complete study of an electrical installation, according to ICE ICE 60364y another series corresponding Standards. The first chapter (A) presents the methodology used, and refers to all chapters of the guide according to the different steps of the study. We all hope that you, the reader, will find this book really useful.
The electrical installation guide is a single document covering the technical and standards relating low voltage electrical installations. It is intended for electrical professionals in companies, design offices, inspection organizations, etc.
This guide technique is aimed at professional users and is only intended to provide guidelines for the definition of an industrial, tertiary or domestic electrical installation activity.
