Consulting-Specifying Engineer Top 5 most read articles online, for Dec. 1-7, covered integrating fire protection and HVAC systems, medium-voltage genset systems, paralleling generators, building effective health care facilities, and flexible and sustainable electrical systems. Link to each article below.

1. Top tips for integrating fire protection, HVAC systems

These nine guidelines will help fire protection engineers integrate fire and life safety systems with HVAC systems. 

2. Designing medium-voltage genset systems

Good working knowledge of medium-voltage applications is essential in making a smooth transition from low-voltage system experience to successful medium-voltage system design. 

3. Paralleling generators in prime power applications

Paralleling generators can increase efficiency, improve reliability, and save money. 

4. Building safe, effective health care facilities

It's hard to think of an engineering project with higher standards than a hospital or health care facility-successfully designed and installed systems can literally be a matter of life and death. Here, engineers with experience in the field offer advice on how to deliver such projects with a clean bill of health.

5. Flexible, sustainable electrical systems

Current building codes and standards allow designers to build flexibility into the electrical system. 

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on csemag.com, December 1-7, for articles published within the last two months.
