NEC 2020 load calculation changes can make budgets more efficient and increase safety

Members of the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) recently concluded discussions on updating Article 220.12 of the NEC (National Electrical Code) to align with a series of energy codes and to account for higher-efficiency lighting solutions in commercial and healthcare buildings.

Because many of today's lighting solutions are increasingly energy efficient, lower current demands exist for power systems. These efficiencies necessitate extensive revisions to the calculation table used to determine volt-amperes (VA) per square foot. Many commercial structures today are built to specific energy code editions or a standard established by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE). NEC 2020 updates now align the NEC with these energy codes, allowing for easier, more consistent installation in the field.

Not only do changes to Article 220.12 streamline industry codes and standards language, they also help design engineers create load calculations that recognize more efficient lighting loads. This, in my opinion, may result in lower infrastructure costs and help fund enhanced safety solutions.

WEBINAR: Examining the Differences Between 2002-2018 Versions of IEEE 1584

Examining the Differences Between 2002-2018 Versions of IEEE 1584 Webinar
Thursday, October 29, 2020

2:00 PM ET 

IEEE 1584 is the standard of care for predicting the impact of an electrical explosion on a worker under a set of specific conditions. The 2002 version of this IEEE Guide was revolutionary in its ability to quantify arcing current and incident thermal energy in a useful manner to properly set overcurrent protection and select PPE. However, a newer version of the guide was published in 2018. It is substantially different and believed to be more accurate. What are the key differences between 2002-2018 versions of IEEE 1584?
This webinar will provide you with the methodology that can be used to assess previous PPE selection as suitable or not suitable for your needs.
