Written in accordance with the 2005 National Electrical Code, this new book provides readers with a comprehensive introduction to the essential elements of electrical grounding and bonding. It examines the critical concepts of calculating conductor sizes, reading and interpreting NEC tables, the use of grounded conductor connections in DC and AC systems, as well as various installations and sizing. Material is reader-friendly and is accompanied by straightforward, easy-to-understand explanations of key concepts that foster understanding. A functional use of color and dynamic illustrations augments the book and further supports this thorough student- and professional-level approach to electrical grounding.

Phil Simmons is the founder of Simmons Electrical Services, where he consults on the National Electrical Code and other codes. Mr. Simmons also writes, edits, illustrates, and produces technical publications, providing plan review of electrical construction documents and inspection of complex electrical installations. In addition to developing training programs related to electrical codes and safety, he has presented on these subjects at numerous seminars and conferences for universities, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI), the U.S. Department of Defense, and private clients. He has also consulted on lawsuits involving electrical injury and property damage and is the co-author and illustrator of numerous textbooks on electrical topics. Mr. Simmons serves NFPA on Code Making Panel-5 of the National Electrical Code Committee (grounding and bonding), and he previously served on the NFPA Standards Council, the NEC Technical Correlating Committee, the IAEI, and Underwriters Laboratories. He is a retired member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.
