ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION WORK BRIAN SCADDAN PDF

It covers both installation theory and practice in compliance with the 16th edition of the IEE Wiring Regulations, and also deals with the electrical contracting industry, the environmental effects of electricity and basic electronics. Much of the material in this book is based on my earlier series, Modern Electrical Installation for Craft Students, but it has been rearranged and augmented to cater better for student-centred learning programmes. Self assessment questions and answers are provided at the ends of chapters. The RCD testers used are designed to do just this, and the basic tests required are as follows: 1 Set the test instrument to the rating of the RCD. Firstly, RCDs are not fail safe devices, they are electro-mechanical in operation and can malfunction.

What is electricity? Where does it come from? How fast does it travel? In order to answer such questions, it is necessary to understand the nature of substances. The following paragraphs give a very simple explanation of the relationship between atomic particles as this area of physics and chemistry is extremely complex.

Every substance known to man is composed of molecules which in turn are made up of atoms. Substances whose molecules are formed by atoms of the same type are known as elements, of which there are known to be, at present, Table 2.

Some of these are man-made or synthetic. Substances whose molecules are made up of atoms of different types are known as compounds. Hence, water, which is a compound, comprises two hydrogen atoms H and one oxygen atom O , that is H 2O.

Similarly, sulphuric acid has two hydrogen, one sulphur and four oxygen atoms: hence, H 2SO4 Molecules are always in a state of rapid motion, but when they are densely packed together this movement is restricted and the substance formed by these molecules is stable i.

When the molecules of a substance are less tightly bound there is much free movement, and such a substance is known as a liquid. When the molecule movement is almost unrestricted the substance can expand and contract in any direction and, of course, is known as a gas. The atoms which form a molecule are themselves made up of particles known as protons, neutrons and electrons.

Since neutrons play no part in electricity at this level of study, they will be ignored from now on. So what is the relationship between protons and electrons; how do they form an atom? The simplest explanation is to liken an atom to our Solar System, where we have a central star, the Sun, around which are the orbiting planets.

In the tiny atom, the protons form the central nucleus and the electrons are the orbiting. The atomic number Table 2. Hence, copper has an atomic number of 29, indicating that it has 29 orbiting electrons. Electrons are arranged in layers or clouds at varying distances from the nucleus like the rings around Saturn ; those nearest the nucleus are more strongly held in place than those farthest away.

These distant electrons are easily dislodged from their orbits and hence are free to join those of another atom whose own distant electrons in turn may leave to join other atoms, and so on. These wandering or random electrons that move about the molecular structure of the material are what makes up electricity. So, then, how do electrons form electricity? If we take two dissimilar metal plates and place them in a chemical solution known as an electrolyte a reaction takes place in which electrons from one plate travel across the electrolyte and collect on the other plate.

What we are describing here, of course, is a simple cell or battery Fig. So if you are the license holder of any content displayed on this website, please Contact us, provide your copyrights license, point out the URL of the content owned by you and we will remove that content.
