1. Supplying power for electric fire pumps

Power is a key element in ensuring a fire pump works in an emergency situation. This article touches on relevant fire codes and offers best practices to illustrate proper design of power for fire pumps.

2. Criteria for selecting arc flash protection techniques, Part 1

Engineers must be aware of the causes of arc flash incidents and relevant safety standards before determining the best arc flash mitigation method for a particular facility.

3. Selecting energy-efficient transformers

Engineers should know the design concepts for selecting and sizing transformers to help achieve energy efficiency.

4. Soft and hard metric conversions

"Soft metric" is not a mix of imperial and metric measurements, and the Dept. of Defense does not recommend it for engineering drawings.

5. Integrating power monitoring systems

After determining the power load profile of a commercial building, engineers need to ensure the system is monitored and integrated with the building's other engineered systems. Here a group of experts shed light on how to approach integrating power monitoring systems.

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on csemeag.com, April 6-12, for articles published within the last two months.
