Power Quality and Energy Management
The 2020 NEC introduces sweeping revisions for both safety and in meeting the evolving demands of power created by new and affordable technologies. This morning portion of the course covers corrective and improved action prompted within the code. By reviewing fundamentals of what an electrician needs to know to meet the higher levels of efficiency within the individual parts of the A/C system, this section will address the electrical system from Article 210 and working in to the service, as directed by the National Electrical Code. An outline of this portion of the course includes an overview of the electrical system; loads and utilization of equipment; analysis of metering and distribution; wiring methods assessment; utility provider delivery method; power performance study; equipment corrections and far point assessment; analysis and logistics; preparation of corrective and/or improved performance valves and time related payback; and preparation of corrective or improved performance installation and timeline.
Overcurrent & Overvoltage Protection
Changes to GFCI protection will be addressed highlighting Article 240 with additional specialty references within Chapters 5, 6, and 7. New standards in electrical safety will be discussed with the most significant change being the increase of amp protection ratings across all receptacle outlets (both indoor and outdoor) wherever GFCE protection is required. Article 242 – Overvoltage Protection is also reviewed.
The reorganization of Article 310 within the 2020 NEC is discussed including the new user-friendly numbering system for important ampacity tables. Medium voltage conductors and Type P armored and unarmored cable are addressed. The new definition for cable bundle in Article 725 is reviewed.
Article 805 will cover the general requirements for communications systems including communications circuits, community antenna distribution systems, and broadband systems. Clarification of definitions will also be covered within this section to include Article 100 changes.
