Commercial, Based on the 2008 National
Electrical Code is intended for use in
commercial wiring courses and apprenticeship
training programs. It provides the basics of
commercial wiring by offering insight into the
planning of a typical commercial installation,
carefully demonstrating how the load
requirements are converted into branch circuits,
then to feeders, and finally into the building's
main electrical service. An accompanying set of
plans in the back of the book allow you to step
through the wiring process by applying concepts
learned in each chapter to an actual commercial
building, in order to understand and meet code
requirements as set forth by the National
