advanced home wiring updated 4th edition dc circuits transfer switches panel pdf

Among the high-level projects: making a direct-current, solar-electric circuit; upgrading the grounding and bonding on your new 200-amp or larger home circuit; installing an
automatic transfer switch for your backup power supply; wiring a room addition; and using a multimeter to precisely locate an open neutral in a home circuit.

Because the projects found in this book are advanced in nature, do not attempt any of them unless you are confident in your abilities. Consult a professional electrician if you have any concerns—in many cases your best solution might be to do some of the work yourself, such as pulling new sheathed cable through walls, and to have the electrical contractor do the other work, such as making the connections. But do keep in mind that home wiring can be a fun and fascinating pursuit, and successfully accomplishing a major project is personally gratifying and can also save you substantial amounts of money.
