Preface to Wiring Systems and Fault Finding for Installation Electricians


The aim of this book is to help the reader to approach the drawing and interpretation of electrical diagrams with confidence, to understand the principles of testing, and to apply this knowledge to fault finding in electrical circuits.

The abundant color diagrams with associated comments and explanations lead from the basic symbols and simple circuit and wiring diagrams, through more complex circuitry, to specific types of wiring systems and, finally, to the methodical approach to fault finding.

The new edition has been brought fully in line with the 18th Edition IET Wiring Regulations.

This book deals with an area of practice that many students and non electricians find particularly challenging. It explains how to interpret circuit diagrams and wiring systems, and outlines the principles of testing before explaining how to apply this knowledge to fault finding in electrical circuits.

A handy pocket guide for anybody who needs to be able to trace faults in circuits, whether in domestic, commercial, or industrial settings, this book will be extremely useful to electricians, plumbers, heating engineers, and intruder alarm installers.

  • Fully up to date with the 18th Edition IET Wiring Regulations 2018. 
  • Covers all the principles and practice of testing and fault diagnosis in a way that is clear for students and non-electricians. 
  • Expert advice from an engineering training consultant, supported with color diagrams and key data.
