Electrical Systems for Architects
Architects: Design Electrical Systems with Ease! As an architect, you're the final authority on the design & application of a building's electrical system whether you do the work or a contractor does it for you. That's why Electrical Systems for Architects, by Ali Dadras, AIA, is so useful & unique-it's the first guide of its kind written by an architect for architects. Step-by-step, you'll see how to design & place electrical systems within the overall design, prepare construction documents, even check someone else's work. And you'll benefit from clear, simple explanations of: energy production-turbines, generators, direct & alternating currents, system components & calculations; conductors-wires, cables, design systems; electrical service-local calculations, types & systems of devices used to serve power; circuits-design of general & special use circuits for residential & commercial application; electrical systems-codes, licenses, permits, voltage systems, transformer systems, motor types, control & design criteria; & much more.
