Critical power: Circuit protection in electrical/power systems

Circuit protection, as it relates to NFPA 70: National Electrical Code, can be interpreted in many ways, depending on building load and use.The electrical engineer is responsible for designing power distribution systems for buildings and ultimately making them safe for the building occupant. Understanding the full circuit-protection requirements will enable the engineer to design the safest and most reliable electrical distribution systems for buildings.
