Consulting-Specifying Engineer's top 5 most read articles online, for Jul. 10-16, covered grounded and ungrounded power, efficient transformers, integrating BAS and controls, high-performance buildings, and paralleling generator systems. Link to each article below.

1. Grounded and ungrounded electrical and power system design

Uninterruptible power supply systems are operating ungrounded during power transfer, critical to the overall design of electrical and power systems in a nonresidential building.

2. Transformers: ensuring efficient electrical system design

Electrical engineers can specify high-efficiency, 3-phase, low-voltage, dry-type transformers into facilities, taking into consideration the many parameters of transformer design to create a safe, effective electrical distribution system.

3. Integrating BAS, controls for smart buildings

Technology integration between all engineering disciplines will create a smart building that can enhance building operations.

4. High expectations for high-performance buildings

High-performance buildings are intricate, complex projects that require attention—qualified, expert consulting-specifying engineers apply their knowledge on such projects.

5. Paralleling generator systems—part three: installation considerations

When designing generator systems, electrical engineers must ensure that the generators and the building electrical systems that they support are appropriate for the specific application.

This list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on www.csemag.com, July 10-16, for articles published within the last two months.
