The Institution prepares regulations for the safety of electrical installations for buildings, the IEE Wiring Regulations (BS 7671), which has now become the standard for the UK and many other countries. It has also prepared the Code of Practice for Installation of Electrical and Electronic Equipment In Ships (BS 8450) and recommends, internationally, the requirements for Mobile and Fixed Offshore Installations. The Institution provides guidance on the application of BS 7671 through publications focused on the various activities from design of the installation through to final test and certification with further guidance for maintenance. This includes a series of eight Guidance Notes, two Codes of Practice and model forms for use in wiring installations.

The Control Techniques Drives and Controls Handbook Lightning Protection
Power & Energy
Vernon Cooray, Uppsala University (Editor)
Lightning is a natural phenomenon that has always fascinated humans. It is also a destructive force, and the science of protecting humans and their belongings on earth is called lightning protection. This book provides a thorough background in almost every aspect of lightning protection.
This book contains a great deal of practical information for drives and industrial engineers who use motors and drives. It is a comprehensive guide to the technology underlying drives and motors. It contains sufficient theory to give both user and student an insight into the design of these components and thereby the constraints and opportunities that exist. It has been radically revised and expanded from the previous edition to contain much new information.
This book is suitable for engineers and scientists as well as for use as a text book on lightning protection at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. Contents: Benjamin Franklin and lightning rods. Lightning parameters of engineering interest. Rocket-triggered lightning and new insights into lightning protection gained from triggered-lightning experiments. Attachment of lightning flashes to grounded structures. Protection against lightning surges. External lightning protection system. Internal lightning protection system. Risk analysis. Low-frequency grounding resistance and lightning protection. High-frequency grounding. Soil ionization. Lightning protection of low-voltage networks. Lightning protection of medium voltage lines. Lightning protection of wind turbines. Lightning protection of telecommunication towers. Lightning protection of satellite launch pads. Lightning protection of structures with risk of fire and explosion. Lightning and trees. Lightning warning systems. Lightning-caused injuries in humans. Lightning standards. High-voltage and high-current testing. Return stroke models for engineering applications. Index.
