Critical Power: Circuit protection in health care facilities
Designing electrical systems for health care facilities—especially hospitals—is more demanding than for conventional buildings because the stakes are so high. Therefore, circuit protection requirements are necessarily more stringent. Health care and hospital electrical system design is regulated by various codes and recommendations that are often confusing. The requirements are full of information on both the normal and emergency power system branches.
