Quality Lighting Design and Installation

Quality Lighting Design & Installation

Description:

When vision meets reality, problems can occur that can compromise design integrity. Today’s approach to building delivery – including value engineering and highly compressed project schedules – often leaves lighting to be one of the last items installed. For the contractor to properly interpret and build the architect/engineer’s vision, the design must be understandable, practical in installation, consistent with other building design features and compatible with the owner’s budget. The vision must be clearly articulated and reflect all applicable design factors – from codes to environmental conditions, and other building systems and structural elements – with product choices containing value-based rationales that are defensible. This issue of NECA’ Electrical Design Library examines how lighting designers and contractors employ standards to deliver effective lighting.

Code of Practice for the Design, Selection and Erection of LV Swithchboards for Residential Applications

Code of Practice for the Design, Selection and Erection of LV Swithchboards for Residential Applications

Descriptions

The scope of this Code of Practice applies to low voltage switchgear assemblies having a rated voltage not exceeding 300v a.c.(Phase to Neutral) and a rated current less than or equal to 250 amps with outgoing circuits not exceeding 125 amps. These are for use in residential type applications. Small commercial type applications may be considered to be within this scope. The Irish Standard I.S. EN60439-3 covers equipment for such applications, however this Code of Practice deals with additional aspects not specifically dealt with within the standard.

Design Classification of Horizontal and Vertical Ground Motion

Design Classification of Horizontal and Vertical Ground Motion

Descriptions

Farzad Naeim and James C. Anderson. This study seeks to provide processed data which will help the design engineer determine the earthquake ground motion that will drive a structure to its critical response. The data identifies the severity and damage potential of ground motions that are part of a database containing 1470 horizontal and 527 vertical components. The report presents the results of the continuation of research initiated in 1993 as part of Naeim’s Professional Fellowship, which had been titled Classification and Evaluation of Earthquake Records for Design. August 1996, 427 pp.

Smart Grid Security Threats and How to Combat Them

Smart Grid Security Threats and How to Combat Them

Description

The vision of the smart grid is to break down barriers between transmission and distribution, communications and back office systems to create a fully integrated network that provides diagnosis and resolution of problems as they arise and enables real time exchange of information between the utility and its customers.

Although smart grid security regulations and standards will continue to evolve as smart grid technology develops, utilities cannot afford to wait until standards are finalized to begin developing their smart grid implementation strategy and plan.

This report on Cyber Security and the Smart Grid looks at the potential security threats faced by the smart grid in the near future, and how to mitigate them.

Threats to the smart grid can be classified into three broad groups – system level threats that attempt to take down the grid, attempts to steal electrical service, and attempts to compromise the confidentiality of data on the system
