Code Organization/Arrangement: A complete review of the organizational flow of the National Electrical Code. Beginning with 90.3 Code Arrangement, and breaking down the four affiliations within the structure of the NEC such as; General, Special, Communications, and Chapter 9. We cover the possible modifications that may occur between the General and Special Chapters using several examples, and we continue to identify many common and affiliated groups of articles which work together in common themes (IE; paralleled numbering system). The intent of this review is to show the overall ease of use of the document by showing its uniformity and obvious flow of affiliations. Also included is an organizational coverage of the “Parts” of the Table of Contents to assist in researching information.
Conductor Sizing & General Wiring: All of Chapter Three is covered for General Wiring requirements with a special focus on proper conductor selections based on ampacities and conditions of use. All conductor voltages (0 to 35,000 V) are addressed for proper table usage and selections. All deration requirements and procedures are reviewed and worked through various examples of single and double deration conditions. Neutral identifications and requirements and sizing are strongly discussed in this subject with a warning for identifying and dealing with harmonically loaded neutrals in wye systems.
Raceway Applications: Articles 342 through 392 are covered for all raceway types and allowed usages and requirements. Chapter 9, tables 1, 4, & 5 are covered for all raceway fill requirements including the special notes for specific conduit and tubing installations. Raceway fill exercises are completed in class for conduit & tubing, wireways, and cable trays.
Overcurrent Protection (0-1000 volts & over 1000 volts): Conductor protection requirements of 240.4 and the modifications in (A through G) are discussed to properly protect conductors of any size and load condition from 0 to 600 volts. Medium voltage (over 600 volt) requirements are also discussed and worked through examples in class. GFPE, GFCI, and AFCI protection requirements are included in this subject. Additional topics are, tap rules, AIC/RMS ratings and requirements, overcurrent types, usages, and ratings, etc. as time permits.
Bonding & Grounding: Definitions are discussed; as well as, the intention of use(s) of components utilized for Bonding & Grounding such as Grounded/Neutral conductors, main & system bonding jumpers, grounding electrodes and grounding electrode conductors, equipment grounding and bonding conductors, etc.
Motors & Motor Circuits: Article 430 is discussed and students are introduced to the determining factors from the “Six Pack: 22, 24, 32, 52, 83 and 110.”
