Electrical Plan Review
Objectives
By reviewing this brochure, the Electrical Inspector,Electrical Contractor, Plan Examiner, ConsultingEngineer and others will be able to . . .
I
Understand and discuss the critical National ElectricalCode
®
requirements regarding overcurrent protection.
I
Understand short-circuit currents and the importanceof overcurrent protection.
I
Understand the three ratings (voltage, ampere, andinterrupting) of overcurrent protective devices.
I
Understand that the major sources of short-circuitcurrents are motors and generators.
I
Understand that transformers are NOTa source ofshort-circuit current.
I
Calculate short-circuit currents using the simplePOINT-TO-POINTmethod and related charts.
I
Realize that whenever overcurrent protection is dis-cussed, the two most important issues are:— HOW MUCH CURRENTWILLFLOW?— HOW LONG WILLTHE CURRENTFLOW?
I
Understand current-limitation and use of let-throughcharts to determine the let-through current values(peak & RMS) when current-limiting overcurrentdevices are used to protect electrical components.
I
Apply current-limiting devices to protect downstreamelectrical components such as conductors, busway,and motor starters.
I
Understand series rated combinations and properapplication of series rated combinations.
I
Understand selective coordination of overcurrentprotective devices.
I
Understand the meaning and importance of electricalterms commonly used relating to overcurrentprotection.
I
Understand maintenance, testing, resetting, andreplacement requirements of overcurrent protectivedevices.
I
Check electrical plans to determine conformance tothe National Electrical Code
®
including short-circuitcurrents, interrupting ratings, short-circuit current(withstand) ratings, selective coordination, groundfaults, grounding electrode conductors, equipmentgrounding conductors, etc.
I
Verify that circuit, feeder, service, grounding electrodeconductors, equipment grounding conductors, andbonding conductors have adequate capacity to con-duct safely ANYfault current likely to be imposed onthem.
I
Form Letter
and a
Data Required Form
thatcan be used to “log-in” the necessary data relating toavailable fault currents, interrupting ratings, seriescombination ratings, selective coordination, short-circuit current (withstand ratings) and let-throughcurrents for protection of electrical components.
I
Know how to ask the right questions.
