Consulting-Specifying Engineer Top 5 most read articles online, for Sept. 29 to Oct. 5, covered designing data center electrical distribution systems, mixed-use building codes and standards, managing power through networked electrical systems, circuit protection in facilities, and the 2014 Product of the Year winners. Link to each article below.

1. Designing data center electrical distribution systems

Designing efficient and reliable data center electrical systems requires looking through the eyes of the electrical engineer-and the owner. 

2. Best practices for mixed-use buildings: Codes and standards

Taking on a mixed-use structure-such as one that includes retail and residential portions-can be an engineering challenge. With all the different engineered systems involved, it can be like working on and integrating several different projects at once. Building codes and standards are key to the success of these projects. 

3. Managing power through networked electrical systems

Engineers should consider the benefits of networking electrical systems-monitoring and controlling power, its usage, and how it affects system reliability. 

4. Circuit protection in facilities

Circuit protection, as defined by NFPA 70, can be interpreted in many ways. Understand the codes and standards to create a circuit protection protocol that can be followed in all buildings. 

5. 2014 Product of the Year winners

Consulting-Specifying Engineer readers have cast their votes for the 2014 Product of the year; read about the winners. 

The list was developed using CFE Media's web analytics for stories viewed on csemag.com, September 29 to October 5, for articles published within the last two months.
