Reviewing this brochure

By reviewing this brochure, the Electrical Inspector, Electrical Contractor, Plan Examiner, Consulting Engineer and others will be able to:

Understand and discuss //

  • The critical National Electrical Code® requirements regarding overcurrent protection.
  • Short-circuit currents and the importance of overcurrent protection.
  • Three ratings (voltage, ampere, and interrupting) of overcurrent protective devices.
  • That the major sources of short-circuit currents are motors and generators.
  • That transformers are NOT a source of short-circuit current.
  • Calculation of short-circuit currents using the simple POINT-TO-POINT method and related charts.
  • Current-limitation and use of let-through charts to determine the let-through current values (peak & RMS) when current-limiting overcurrent devices are used to protect electrical components.
  • Series rated combinations and proper application of series rated combinations.
  • Selective coordination of overcurrent protective devices.
  • The meaning and importance of electrical terms commonly used relating to overcurrent protection.
  • Maintenance, testing, resetting, and replacement requirements of overcurrent protective devices.

Realize and check //

  • Realize that whenever overcurrent protection is discussed, the two most important issues are:
    • How much current will flow?
    • How long will the current flow?
  • Electrical plans to determine conformance to the National Electrical Code® including:
    • Short-circuit currents,
    • Interrupting ratings,
    • Short-circuit current (withstand) ratings,
    • Selective coordination,
    • Ground faults, grounding electrode conductors,
    • Equipment grounding conductors, etc.
