Consulting-Specifying Engineer Top 5 most read articles online, for Jun. 8-14, covered series rated panels, understanding cogeneration systems, webcast questions and answers on arc flash reduction, graduating to intelligent buildings, and a microgrid case study. Link to each article below.

1. Is a series rated panel right for you?

It is not always necessary to have every branch circuit breaker rated for the full available fault current in an electrical panel or switchboard. 

2. Understanding cogeneration systems

Cogeneration systems-also known as combined heat and power (CHP) systems-generate both electricity and usable thermal energy. These systems typically are used on campuses that have high heat load requirements. 

3. Your questions answered: Electrical Systems: Arc Flash Reduction and NEC 240.87 Requirements

James A. Smith, senior offer specialist at Schneider Electric, and Antony Parsons, PhD, PE, senior staff engineer at Schneider Electric, tackled unanswered questions from the May 6, 2015, webcast on arc flash reduction and NEC 240.87 requirements. 

4. Graduating from smart to intelligent buildings

Technology is changing what is possible in the built environment. Smart buildings integrate the design of the infrastructure, building and facility systems, communications, business systems, and technology solutions that contribute to sustainability and operational efficiency. 

5. Case study: Microgrid at Princeton University

Microgrids can lower cost and raise reliability for the owner, and for surrounding communities. 

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on csemag.com, June 8-14, for articles published within the last two months.
