AFCIs, Grounding, and SPDs for Residential Applications
In AFCIs, Grounding, and SPDs for Residential Applications, you'll learn ...
- How the NEC can be applied to residential use in existing dwellings for protection from electrical safety hazards
- Four protection methods against electrical hazards and surges
- The NEC edition and article in effect for each of the four protection methods with key updates identified for 2011, 2014, and 2017 editions
- How Arc-Fault Circuit Interrupter devices are UL tested
For all states where the NEC is in effect, this course explains how the NEC can be applied to residential use in existing dwellings for protection from electrical safety hazards ‒ arc faults and ground faults, and from surges which can damage electronics equipment.
Four protection methods are presented: grounding, surge protection, GFCI, and AFCI. For each method, the NEC edition/article reference is provided as it is applicable by state. Design specification/drawing examples are presented for grounding, surge protection, and GFCI. More details about AFCIs are presented in the second part of the course.
