The fourth edition of Advanced Electrical Installation Work has been written as a complete textbook for the City and Guilds 2330 Level 3 Certificate in Electrotechnical Technology and the City and Guilds 2356 Level 3 NVQ in Installing Electrotechnical Systems. The book meets the combined requirements of these courses, that is the core units and the electrical installation occupational units and therefore students need purchase only this one textbook for all subjects in the Level 3 examinations. The book will also assist students taking the SCOTVEC and BTEC Electrical and Utilization units at levels II and III and many taking engineering NVQ and Modern Apprentiship courses. Although the text is based upon the City and Guilds syllabus, the book also provides a sound basic knowledge and comprehensive guide for other professionals in the construction and electrotechnical industries. Modern regulations place a greater responsibility upon the installing electrician for safety and the design of an installation. The latest regulations governing electrical installations are the 16th edition of the IEE Wiring Regulations (BS 7671: 2001). The fourth edition of this book has been revised and updated to incorporate the requirements and amendments of the 16th edition of the IEE Wiring Regulations BS7671:2001. The City and Guilds examinations comprise assignments and multiple-choice papers. For this reason multiple-choice questions can be found at the end of each chapter. More traditional questions are included as an aid to private study and to encourage a thorough knowledge of the subject. I would like to acknowledge the assistance given by the following manufacturers and organizations in the preparation of this book: Crabtree Electrical Industries Limited Wylex Ltd RS Components Ltd The Institution of Electrical Engineers The British Standards Institution The City & Guilds of London Institute I would also like to thank my colleagues and students at Blackpool and The Fylde College for their suggestions and assistance during the preparation of this book. Finally, I would like to thank Joyce, Samantha and Victoria for their support and encouragement. Trevor Linsley PREFACE

Preface This book is intended for the trainee electrician who is working towards NVQs, gaining competences in various aspects of installation work. It covers both installation theory and practice in compliance with the 16th edition of the IEE Wiring Regulations, and also deals with the electrical contracting industry, the environmental effects of electricity and basic electronics. Much of the material in this book is based on my earlier series, Modern Electrical Installation for Craft Students, but it has been rearranged and augmented to cater better for student-centred learning programmes. Self assessment questions and answers are provided at the ends of chapters. Since January 1995, the UK distribution declared voltages at consumer supply terminals have changed from 415 V/240 V ± 6% to 400 V/230 V + 10% – 6%. As there has been no physical change to the system, it is likely that measurement of voltages will reveal little or no difference to those before, nor will they do so for some considerable time to come. Hence I have used both the old and the new values in many of the examples in this book. Also, BS 7671 2001 now refers to PVC as thermosetting (PVC). I have, however, left the original wording as all in the industry will recognize this more easily. Brian Scaddan

Preface My first task as editor is to acknowledge and thank my predecessors Alan Smith and Eric Reeves for their work in editing the three previous editions. It is to be hoped that they will not disapprove of this latest fourth edition. Since the third edition was published in 1996, developments in many aspects of the electrical installation industry have continued apace, both on the technological and Standards fronts.The revolution in electronic microtechnology has made it possible to introduce more complex technologies in protective equipment and control systems. This, together with the rationalisation of national, European and international harmonised Standards, has led to the need to provide new guidance in some areas. So, after seven years, the time is ripe for an update to take account of such developments. Additionally, since the third edition was published, the political and financial aspects of the supply industry have further escalated, with further fragmentation. Chapter 1 therefore was particularly difficult, trying to take account of the continuous change in practice. At the time of writing this book, the replacement of the Electricity Supply Regulations 1988 (as amended) was anticipated. The Electricity Safety, Quality, and Continuity Regulations came into force on 31 January 2003, but for the purposes of this book reference is made to the earlier Statutory Regulations. The effect of changes in the industry over the last few years has meant the update of nearly all the 23 chapters. It is not possible to highlight here particular alterations for they are too numerous. Sections dealing with the safety aspects of electrical installations, most particularly Chapter 11, naturally take into account Electricity at Work Regulations. To a great extent these statutory requirements complement BS 7671: Requirements for Electrical Installations, known as the IEE Wiring Regulations. All chapters required some revision to take account of revisions and amendments to British and other Standards. It has to be recognised that, both on Standards and technology evolution, the target is continually moving. However, every effort has been made to bring the text as up-to-date as possible. Over recent years lighting design development has continued. Extra-low voltage luminaires continue to be used extensively for display and feature illumination. Security lighting has now become an industry in its own right, and Chapter 18 takes all these factors into account. The declared low voltage supply has for a number of years been harmonised across Europe to 400/230 V with tolerances of +10% and -6%. Further consideration of these tolerances is expected in 2008.

Civil Engineer's Reference Book, Fourth Edition provides civil engineers with reports on design and construction practices in the UK and overseas. It gives a concise presentation of theory and practice in the many branches of a civil engineer's profession and it enables them to study a subject in greater depth. The book discusses some improvements in earlier practices, for example in surveying, geotechnics, water management, project management, underwater working, and the control and use of materials. Other changes covered are from the evolving needs of clients for almost all forms of construction, maintenance and repair. Another major change is the introduction of new national and Euro-codes based on limit state design, covering most aspects of structural engineering. The fourth edition incorporates these advances and, at the same time, gives greater prominence to the special problems relating to work overseas, with differing client requirements and climatic conditions. Chapters 1 to 10 provide engineers, at all levels of development, with 'lecture notes' on the basic theories of civil engineering. Chapters 11 to 44 cover the practice of design and construction in many of the fields of civil engineering. Civil engineers, architects, lawyers, mechanical engineers, insurers, clients, and students of civil engineering will find benefit in the use of this text.
