3.1.0Introduction
In this section, a presentation format of questions and answers has been used tofocus on the factors that are pertinent to a basic understanding and application of overcurrent protective devices. Relevant sections of the
 National Electrical Code
(
 NEC
) are referenced and analyzed in detail. Each section is translated into simple,easily understood language, complemented by one-line diagrams giving sound,practical means of applying overcurrent protection, as well as affording compliancewith the
 NEC.
