This second book in a three-volume set teaches the architect what must be known about properly designing and specifying the electrical components and systems for a building - from background fundamentals on electricity to the practicalities of wiring to lighting and controls - all within the context of the overall architectural design. The book covers all aspects of wiring, building power systems, lighting, safety and other topics related to the use of electricity in building design. Typical design problems (such as calculating peak electrical load demands for a new building) are worked out in step-by-step fashion to show readers how to arrive at correct solutions. In addition, the book has quick calculations, illustrated with look-up tables and typical design schematics, and photographs of standard components.
