Product description

BS 7671 has always been about capacity, safety and control of electrical installations. Could energy efficiency negate that?
A recent harmonised document, IEC 60364-8-1 Low Voltage electrical installations – Part 8-1: Energy Efficiency, respects the emphasis of safety and operational control in the first instance. It also, however, requires energy efficient electrical installation designs.

Using IEC 60364-8-1 as a point of reference, the Designer’s Guide to Energy Efficient Electrical Installations:

  • Prepares users for meeting the new challenges and opportunities presented by energy efficiency
  • Explains the areas likely to be incorporated into BS 7671 and how this will affect electrical installations in the UK
  • Keeps designers ahead of the game when designing future installations
  • Looks at energy efficiency in a holistic fashion and examines the potential issues caused by just focusing on one or two specific areas
  • Explains the responsibilities of designers and clients in ensuring an energy efficient electrical design

Contents include:

  • the scope of the HD
  • benefits of energy efficiency
  • energy efficiency frameworks and design matrix
  • guidance on designing an energy efficient installation
  • distribution design requirements
  • distribution control requirements
  • electrical infrastructure, metric and load characteristics
  • considerations for renewables, metering, lighting, heating ventilation and air conditioning, power quality analysis
  • monitoring of an operation and maintenance regimes
  • summary checklists
