2009 Philippine Electrical Code
It is NOT a textbook. It gives NO background, reasons, application or illustration of rules and regulations set down in the Code. The code is more of a catalogue of rules for an electrical installation. The Code definition of term is NOT the same as a definition for the same word in a standard dictionary.

2009 Philippine Electrical Code
Historical Background
The first documented case of a Code as a requirement of rules was published on 16th Nov. 1881 entitled “The Dangers of Electric Lighting”. The first NEC was developed in 1897, eighteen after the invention of incandescent light bulb by Thomas A. Edison. Since 1911, the NFPA of Quincy, Massachussets, has been responsible for the maintenance and publication of the NEC. Regularly revised (every three years) to reflect the evolution of products, materials, and installation techniques. 21 Separate Committee, each consisting of 15-20 persons. Members of each committee meet several times, discuss proposed changes, accepting some and rejecting others, and rewrite (as required) the sections of the Code that were assigned to their committee. The 2009 PEC used the 2005 Edition of the National Electrical Code as referenced Code.

2009 Philippine Electrical Code
Purpose The primary objective of the code is to establish basic materials quality and electrical works standards for the safe use of electricity for light, heat, power, communications, signaling and for other purposes.
“Practical safeguarding of persons and property from hazards arising from the use of electricity” COMPLIANCE TO THE PEC WILL ENSURE SAFETY AND PREVENT ELECTRICAL FIRES

2009 Philippine Electrical Code
Intention
NOT intended as a design specification or an instruction manual for untrained persons.
• The term untrained persons can be interpreted to mean anyone who does NOT have an understanding of electricity and electrical construction. • It can also mean that the Code assumes a person reading or studying it knows and understands basic Ohm Law, Kirchoff’s Law, the triangle of fire, etc.

2009 Philippine Electrical Code
The PEC is a safety standard, NOT a design guide. Electrical designs must comply with the requirements of PEC to ensure safety. Energy management, maintenance, and power quality issues aren’t within the scope of the PEC. Consideration should be given for future expansion of electrical systems but this is not a Code requirement.

2009 Philippine Electrical Code
Universal Change A universal change throughout the Code is the replacement of “computed load” and “demand load” with “calculated load.” For example, the term demand load is being replaced with calculated load to improve clarity and to reduce confusion, especially when related to “calculated load” and “demand factor.” The term calculated load includes demand factor, the concepts of diversity, and historical data.

Grounding of Electrical Equipment Normally non-current-carrying conductive materials enclosing electrical conductors or equipment, or forming part of such equipment, shall be connected to earth in a manner that will limit the voltage imposed by lightning or unintentional contact with higher – voltage lines and limit the voltage to ground on these materials. Bonding of Electrical Equipment Normally non-current-carrying conductive materials enclosing electrical conductors or equipment, or forming part of such equipment, shall be connected together and to the supply system grounded equipment in a manner that creates a lowimpedance path for ground-fault current that is capable of carrying the maximum fault current likely to be imposed on it.

Electrically conductive materials that are likely to become energized shall be connected together and to the supply system grounded equipment in a manner that creates a lowimpedance path for ground-fault current that is capable of carrying the maximum fault current likely to be imposed on it.

4. Path for Fault Current
Electrical equipment, wiring, and other electrically conductive material likely to become energized shall be installed in a manner that creates a low-impedance circuit facilitating the operation of the overcurrent device or ground detector for high impedance grounded systems. It shall be capable of safely carrying the maximum ground-fault current likely to be imposed on it from any point on the wiring system where a ground fault may occur to the electrical supply source. The earth shall not be considered as an effective ground fault current path.

WHY?

Electrical Safety Seminar for Jollibee‘s Personnel

146

Module 9- Fire Pumps
The general philosophy behind Code articles is that circuit protection will shut down equipment before letting the supply conductors melt from overload. Art. 6.95 Fire Pumps depart from this philosophy. The idea is that the fire pump motor must run, no matter what; it supplies water to facility’s fire protection piping, which in turn supplies water to the sprinkler system and fire hoses.
