Energy-Efficient Electrical Systems for Buildings
Energy-Efficient Electrical Systems for Buildings, Second Edition offers a systematic and practical approaches to design and analyze electrical distribution and utilization systems in buildings. It considers safety and energy efficiency, while also focusing on sustainability and resiliency, to design electrical distribution systems for buildings.
In addition, the second edition provides guidelines on how to design electrified and energy-resilient buildings. Utilizing energy efficiency, sustainability, and resiliency as important criteria, this book discusses how to meet the minimal safety requirements, set by the National Electrical Code (NEC), to select electrical power systems for buildings. It also considers the impact of building electrification on the design of electrical power systems. The second edition features a new chapter on the optimal design energy-efficient and resilient power systems. In addition, this book includes new end-of-chapter problems, examples, and case studies to enhance and reinforce student understanding.
This book is intended for senior undergraduate mechanical, civil, and electrical engineering students taking courses in Electrical Systems for Buildings and Design of Building Electrical Systems.
Instructors will be able to utilize an updated solutions manual and figure slides for their course.
