Ground-fault sensing and relaying equipment is intended for use in power distribution systems rated at 600V maximum and are considered to be equipment protection devices, not personal protection devices.
In many conversations with electrical inspectors on the subject of arc-fault circuit-interrupters (AFCIs), I find them variously questioning, doubtful, confused, bewildered and puzzled concerning the application of 210.12.
Cooking Equipment Calculations, Part III 220.19 Electric Ranges and Other Cooking Appliances Article 220 of the National Electrical Code contains specifications for calculating branch-circuit, feeder and service loads.
Specifications for calculating branch-circuit, feeder and service loads are in Article 220 of the National Electrical Code. This article is divided into four parts: I. General, II. Feeders and Services, III. Optional Calculations for Computing Feeder and Service Loads and IV.
This is the conclusion of a two-part article that began in the November issue. This part provides important information for listing and National Electrical Code requirements for installations of emergency, legally required standby and optional standby systems.
