The class begins by reviewing every notable change made to Chapter 4 in the 2020 National Electrical Code® (NEC-2020). Chapter 4 is one of the “core” Chapters in the NEC and contains some of the most widely applied as well as the most frequently updated provisions of the NEC regarding safe and reliable installation of equipment for general use.
Each change presented in the class is accompanied by a thoroughgoing discussion of what the change means and the reason it was installed in the Code. The goal is to express every change in clear language, to focus on how the changes should be applied by a working electrician, and to provide the resources to explore the change more fully for those who wish to do so.
This course presents 38 significant changes to Chapter 4, including a revision to the defined Scope of the NEC in Article 90, new Panelboard Circuit Directory Locations, and enhanced Identification of Power Sources for Storage Batteries.
Next, it presents every significant change made to Chapter 6 in the 2020 National Electrical Code® (NEC-2020). Chapter 6 governs electrical connections to specialized equipment. Since this specialized equipment often sees the greatest innovation and most rapid changes of any in the electrical field, it also sees a host of NEC revisions during every code renewal cycle, including the 2017-2020 code review cycle.
The class then surveys the 10 changes to PV System codes such as those for circuit sizing, OCPD, rapid shutdowns, means of isolating equipment, identification, and grouping. The final set of changes looked at including new Mating Connectors for PV Systems, new minimums before GFP rules apply to PV Systems, a vital new informational graphic on large-scale PV systems, revised labeling for Fuel Cell Systems, and new selective coordination guidance for fire pumps.
