Electric Safety: Practice and Standards by Mohamed A. El-Sharkawi

By Mohamed A. El-Sharkawi

Electric strength engineering schooling generally covers protection of the facility gear and platforms. Little recognition, if any, is given to the security of individuals. once they achieve specialist prestige, such a lot strength engineers are usually not acquainted with electrical questions of safety corresponding to practices governing web site works or grounding strategies of dwellings, hospitals, and factories. Designed for either electric engineering scholar and training strength engineers, Electric protection: perform and Standards presents the information and research they should be good versed in electrical protection.


  • Includes concepts to evaluate protection practices at worksites and gives treatments to right safeguard problems

  • Addresses the elusive stray voltage challenge and gives suggestions to mitigate its influence in dwellings in addition to in delicate installations akin to hospitals and dairy farms

  • Provides approximate, but actual, analyses and methods that may be used to evaluate electrical protection with no the necessity for large computation or problematic programs

  • Includes numerous case reports from genuine occasions and examples demonstrating how adaptations in electrical safeguard approach implementation effect defense levels

Based at the authors’ years of expertise as a professional witness and electrical protection education teacher, the publication covers the research of electrical security practices in addition to the interpretations of varied security codes. together with homework difficulties and a suggestions guide, this e-book is a complete advisor to acknowledge and cast off risks of electrical shocks for pros engaged on electrical energy gear, in addition to humans akin to most of the people in primary locations, farms employees and animals, and health facility patients.
