Industrial and Commercial Power Systems Handbook
Create reliable, cost-effective electrical power systems with confidence. Here's a true working tool for planning, designing, and operating reliable, economical industrial or commercial electrical power systems. In Industrial and Commercial Power System Handbook, F. S. Prabhakara, R. L. Smith, Jr., and R. P. Stratford give you expert guidance on creating a completely efficient power system--including how to control the reactive power to achieve the lowest system losses and utility billing. Step-by-step, you'll see how to: create a conceptual design based on realistic service loads and future needs; identify the necessary equipment and ensure protective device coordination; apply voltage classes, drop limits, control, and drop calculations; improve displacement power factor and distortion power factor; understand switchgear ratings and how to apply them; employ protective devices; minimize the effects of surges, sags, and impulses; test and evaluate system components; and much more!

The book is excellent reading. The authors on page 2-10, sub-titile -2.5 stated that load on an equipment is based on 80% of equipment capacity and is recommended by NEC. But members from Mikeholt NEC forum are denying it. Please see the discussion in

It is requested that the authors of the book respond.
