This popular guide focuses on common misconceptions in the application of the Wiring Regulations. It explains in clear language those parts of the Regs that most need simplifying, outlining the correct procedures to follow and those to avoid. Emphasis has been placed on areas where confusion and misinterpretation is common, such as earthing and bonding, circuit design and protection, and in particular the increased use of RCDs. It is an affordable reference for all electrical contractors and other workers involved in electrical installations. It will enable safe and efficient compliance and help answer queries quickly to ensure work complies with the latest version of the Wiring Regulations. With the coverage carefully matched to the syllabus of the City & Guilds Certificate in the Requirements for Electrical Installations (2382-10 and 2382-20) and containing sample exam questions and answers, it is also an ideal revision guide. Brian Scaddan, I Eng, MIET, is a consultant for and an Honorary Member of City & Guilds. He has over 35 years’ experience in Further Education and training. He is Director of Brian Scaddan Associates Ltd, an approved City and Guilds and NICEIC training centre offering courses on all aspects of Electrical Installation Contracting including the C&G 2382 series.

The IEE Wiring Regulations Explained and Illustrated, Second Edition discusses the recommendations of the IEE Regulations for the Electrical Equipment of Buildings for the safe selection or erection of wiring installations. The book emphasizes earthing, bonding, protection, and circuit design of electrical wirings. The text reviews the fundamental requirements for safety, earthing systems, the earth fault loop impedance, and supplementary bonding. The book also describes the different types of protection, such as protection against mechanical damage, overcurrent, under voltage (which prevents automatic restarting of machinery and devices in the event of a voltage drop). The text explains in detail the stages of the designing process of electrical installation that include the design current, protection rating, correction factors, cable current-carrying capacity, cable size, voltage drop, shock risk constraints, and thermal constraints. The electrician should test the finished installation before energizing it by following a sequence of tests recommended in the Regulations. The book is suitable for electricians, technicians, building foreman, house contractors, as well as for students studying to be licensed electricians and technicians.
