About the Recommended Practice for
Electrical Systems in Commercial Buildings
Working Group

IEEE Std 241-1990 is part of theIEEE Color Book Seris that was specifically developed for engineers involved with all facets of industrial and commercial power systems.
 
Because of the increasing size and complexity of today's commercial buildings, there is a growing dependence on adequate and reliable electrical systems.  The IEEE Gray Book provides extensive information on each of the various specialized subjects involved in planning the power system of a newor modernized commercial structure.  The comprehensive source will alert the electrical engineer or designer to the many problems encountered in designing electrical systems for commercial buildings.  Extensive information is presented on load requirements, power sources and distribution systems, supervisory, programmed, and security systems, and specialized occupancy buildings.

Chapter 1....................Introduction
Chapter 2...................Load Characteristics
Chapter 3..................Voltage Considerations
Chapter 4..................Power Sources and Distribution Systems
