Overview

About the Product

Electrical Wiring: Residential, Seventh Canadian Edition, will prove a valuable resource to instructors and students alike. It includes 2015 Canadian Electrical Code, Part I references and wiring techniques. Each chapter is a complete lesson ending with review questions to summarize the material covered. The chapters are sequenced to introduce the student to basic principles and wiring practices, and progress to more advanced areas of residential electrical wiring. The text guides students through the working drawings for a residential electrical installation, the proper wiring of receptacles, and the minimum required number of lighting and power branch circuits. Key topics include: calculating conductor sizes, calculating voltage drop, sizing services, connecting electrical appliances, grounding and bonding equipment, and installing recessed fixtures. These are critical skills that can make the difference between an installation that “meets code” and one that is exceptional.
