220.14 Other Loads—All Occupancies Load calculation requirements are in Article 220 of the National Electrical Code (NEC). This article provides requirements for calculating branch-circuit, feeder and service loads. Article 220 is divided into five parts.
220.14 Other Loads—All Occupancies Article 220 of the National Electrical Code (NEC) provides requirements for calculating branch-circuit, feeder and service loads. An essential part of an electrician’s professional career is performing load calculations.
Switch height for paddle fan Q: Is there a minimum and maximum height for a wall switch that controls a paddle fan in a bedroom of a multifamily dwelling? A: There are no special rules for the height of a wall switch that controls a ceiling fan.
Disconnecting means Q: Disconnecting means for circuits supplied by a generator are required where the circuits enter a building or structure. Are these disconnects from an outdoor generator required to meet the rules in Article 225? Is there a maximum number of disconnects permitted?
220.14 Other Loads—All Occupancies Article 220 of the National Electrical Code (NEC) contains requirements for calculating branch-circuit, feeder and service loads. Knowing how to perform load calculations is an essential part of being an electrician.
Hidden within the rewrite of Articles 511 and 514—which cover repair garages for motor vehicles and motor fuel dispensing stations, respectively, in the 2005 National Electrical Code (NEC)—is a major change in the concept of hazardous (classified) locations.
An essential part in the life of an electrician is performing load calculations. Determining what size conductors and overcurrent protective devices to install is something most electricians do on a daily basis.
Providing branch-circuit overcurrent protection and subdividing electrical resistance-heating elements in appliances and fixed electric space heating equipment has been a long- standing requirement in the National Electrical Code (NEC).
Electric service for grounding-electrode conductors Q: The electric utility in our area requires the installation of a ground rod and grounding-electrode conductor in the meter socket. Is it acceptable to ground the grounded-circuit conductor (neutral) in the service-disconnect enclosure?
220.1 Scope Understanding how to perform load calculations is an important part of an electrician’s professional career. Before obtaining a permit, some jurisdictions require paperwork showing load calculations for services and feeders.
A new article has been proposed for the 2008 National Electrical Code (NEC) covering mission-critical electrical systems installed in vital infrastructures or facilities where, if the infrastructure or facility was either destroyed or incapacitated, disruption of the facility would affect national
AC and MC bushings Q: Sections 320.17 and 330.17 indicate that Types AC and MC cables must be installed in accordance with 300.4, which includes protection of the cables by listed bushings or listed grommets that cover all metal edges of metal studs.
314.28 Pull and Junction Boxes Requirements pertaining to the installation and use of all boxes and conduit bodies used as outlet, device, junction or pull boxes are in Article 314 of the National Electrical Code (NEC).
Recent discussions on ground-fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) protection for personnel on construction sites have indicated that there seems to be a misunderstanding of whether generator power is excluded from the GFCI requirement.
