This is the tenth edition of a book which has for many years been in constant demand as a clear and reliable guide to the practical aspects of domestic electric wiring. Intended for electrical contractors, installation engineers, wiremen and students, its aim is to provide essential up to date information on modern methods and materials in a simple, clear and concise manner. The main changes in this edition are those necessary to bring the work into line with the 16th Edition of the Regulations for Electrical Installations issued by the Institution of Electrical Engineers. Chapters 1 to 3 introduce the basic features of domestic installations; explain power and current ratings, cable and accessory sizes, and circuit protection; and the fitting of switches, fuses, circuit-breakers, etc. Chapters 4 to 6 deal in detail with the main types of domestic wiring work, covering lighting, power, socket-outlets, and the connection of appliances.
Fluorescent lighting and 'off-peak' electric heating systems are also covered. Chapters 7 to 9 deal with the principal wiring systems available for domestic use, including steel and PVC conduit, PVC cable, and the mineral-insulated copper-sheathed system. Chapter 10 describes the earthing requirements and the protective multiple earthing (PME) system which is now being more widely applied; it also discusses earth-leakage circuit-breakers, which are becoming increasingly common. Chapter 11 explains the inspection and tests required on completed installations, including the earth-fault loop-impedance and ring-circuit continuity tests which are now covered in greater detail in the Regulations.
