The Definitive Guide to the 2014 NEC Completely revised and expanded to reflect changes in the 2014 NEC, McGraw-Hill's National Electrical Code® 2014 Handbook, 28th Edition presents the trusted advice and analysis you need to accurately interpret 2014 NEC rules. In-depth coverage of the background and rationale for specific Code rules enhances your understanding of the meaning and application of those rules. This practical resource also points out important matters of discussion with inspectors. Designed as a must-have companion to the 2014 NEC book published by the National Fire Protection Association, this comprehensive volume features more than 1,000 detailed diagrams and photos. The authoritative information and insight contained in this on-the-job reference will help your work pass inspection the first time. This book doesn't duplicate the text of the NEC. Instead, it is entirely comprised of explanatory text, specifically addressing every single code article, providing the most analytical content available. Because this book is published completely independently from NFPA, it is free to--and frequently does--offer detailed analysis of technically questionable and editorially convoluted provisions in the NEC, along with strategies for discussing those issues in advance with owners and inspectors before financial commitments are made. Covers all significant changes in the 2014 NEC, including: Low Voltage Direct Current Distribution Systems (new Article 393) Modular Data Centers (new Article 646) Fire Resistive Cable Systems (new Article 728) Energy Management Systems (new Article 750) Global changes to hazard warning labels and centralization of rules for lockout mechanisms, along with extensive increases of permitted utilization voltage from 600 to 1000 Coverage throughout the NEC® of DC systems due to expanding usage Critical expansion of both requirements for and acceptable strategies to provide AFCI protection

This 45th edition--part of a series continuously published for more than 80 years and based on the 2017 National Electrical Code--is a handy instruction manual that has been used by generations of readers who learn the "why” as well as the "how-to” of wiring practices. Encouraging readers to tackle jobs small and large, the guide covers everything from repairing a table lamp to wiring a whole house. After introducing the basics--standards, codes, safety practices, and an overview of how electricity is measured and delivered--chapters show how to design a layout for lights, switches, and receptacles; run a line from a utility pole; install wires, circuits, and grounds; and handle special projects such as replacing old wiring and wiring detached garages and accessory buildings. The do-it-yourselfer appreciates the detailed instructions and drawings, the homeowner working with a contractor gains insight into how to communicate with the professional about the problems to be solved, and students and teachers appreciate the range and depth of the subject matter and the accompanying student workbook.

Electricity is the lifeblood of modern society, and for the vast majority of people that electricity is obtained from large, interconnected power grids. However, the grid that was developed in the 20th century, and the incremental improvements made since then, including its underlying analytic foundations, is no longer adequate to completely meet the needs of the 21st century. The next-generation electric grid must be more flexible and resilient. While fossil fuels will have their place for decades to come, the grid of the future will need to accommodate a wider mix of more intermittent generating sources such as wind and distributed solar photovoltaics. Achieving this grid of the future will require effort on several fronts. There is a need for continued shorter-term engineering research and development, building on the existing analytic foundations for the grid. But there is also a need for more fundamental research to expand these analytic foundations. Analytic Research Foundations for the Next-Generation Electric Grid provide guidance on the longer-term critical areas for research in mathematical and computational sciences that is needed for the next-generation grid. It offers recommendations that are designed to help direct future research as the grid evolves and to give the nation’s research and development infrastructure the tools it needs to effectively develop, test, and use this research.

This fully updated second edition includes 100+ pages of new material, including new chapters on Verifying Code, Predicting Errors, and Preventing Errors. Cutting-edge tools such as FindBUGS and AGITAR are explained, techniques from integrated environments like Jazz.net are highlighted, and all-new demos with ESC/Java and Spec#, Eclipse and Mozilla are included. This complete and pragmatic overview of debugging is authored by Andreas Zeller, the talented researcher who developed the GNU Data Display Debugger(DDD), a tool that over 250,000 professionals use to visualize the data structures of programs while they are running. Unlike other books on debugging, Zeller's text is product agnostic, appropriate for all programming languages and skill levels. Why Programs Fail explains best practices ranging from systematically tracking error reports, to observing symptoms, reproducing errors, and correcting defects. It covers a wide range of tools and techniques from hands-on observation to fully automated diagnoses, and also explores the author's innovative techniques for isolating minimal input to reproduce an error and for tracking cause and effect through a program. It even includes instructions on how to create automated debugging tools. The new edition of this award-winning productivity-booster is for any developer who has ever been frustrated by elusive bugs. Brand new chapters demonstrate cutting-edge debugging techniques and tools, enabling readers to put the latest time-saving developments to work for them. Learn by doing. New exercises and detailed examples focus on emerging tools, languages and environments, including AGITAR, FindBUGS, Python and Eclipse. The text includes exercises and extensive references for further study, and a companion website with source code for all examples and additional debugging resources.
