Preface to Handbook of Electrical Installation Practice PDF Book

My first task as editor is to acknowledge and thank my predecessors Alan Smith and Eric Reeves for their work in editing the three previous editions. It is to be hoped that they will not disapprove of this latest fourth edition.

Since the third edition was published in 1996, developments in many aspects of the electrical installation industry have continued apace, both on the technological and Standards fronts.

The revolution in electronic microtechnology has made it possible to introduce more complex technologies in protective equipment and control systems.

This, together with the rationalization of national, European, and international harmonized Standards, has led to the need to provide new guidance in some areas.

So, after seven years, the time is ripe for an update to take account of such developments. Additionally, since the third edition was published, the political and financial aspects of the supply industry have further escalated, with further fragmentation.

Chapter 1, therefore, was particularly difficult, trying to take account of the continuous change in practice. At the time of writing this book, the replacement of the Electricity Supply Regulations 1988 (as amended) was anticipated.

The Electricity Safety, Quality, and Continuity Regulations came into force on 31 January 2003, but for the purposes of this book, reference is made to the earlier Statutory Regulations.

The effect of changes in the industry over the last few years has meant the update of nearly all the 23 chapters. It is not possible to highlight here particular alterations for they are too numerous.

Sections dealing with the safety aspects of electrical installations, most particularly Chapter 11, naturally take into account Electricity at Work Regulations.

To a great extent, these statutory requirements complement BS 7671: Requirements for Electrical Installations, known as the IEE Wiring Regulations.

All chapters required some revision to take account of revisions and amendments to British and other Standards.

It has to be recognized that, both on Standards and technology evolution, the target is continually moving. However, every effort has been made to bring the text as up-to-date as possible.

Over recent years lighting design development has continued. Extra-low voltage luminaires continue to be used extensively for display and feature illumination.

Security lighting has now become an industry in its own right, and Chapter 18 takes all these factors into account.

The declared low voltage supply has for a number of years been harmonized across Europe to 400/230 V with tolerances of +10% and -6%. Further consideration of these tolerances is expected in 2008.
