Hi good people ! I am looking for the best book for electrical installation design for residential and commercial buildings that gives comprehensive information from start to finish( comply with standards). I am ok with basic theory but I need a book that details procedure , calculation and layout.

Thanks in advance

No such book can put in to words what some have worked a lifetime to perfect.

At least not that I'm aware of.

There are some basic books that give information on service design, and load calculations. Others that give some on blue print reading.

Do a google search on the subject that you want the information on and you will get some information.

There is some information here and I was hoping others would add their suggestions.

Well, actually there may be no book which covers all the topics but the one that focus on design aspects works perfect for me. I googled some books already but wanted to listen to what experienced people recommend.

I have been working as technician for one and half year at fairly small company(under subcontractor) but I want my future to be focusing on design aspects however small it would be.

It's good that you're being future minded along with ambitious. I admire that. Just make sure to continue to gain your experience as a technician over the next few years. A good designer needs plenty of field experiance. The mullens books and the American electrician HB are decent but no substitute for OJT.

I was thinking about this and came up with an idea. You said you're a technician. Well that got me thinking alarm tech and NICET certifications. If you want to be involved in design being a level 4 NICET would be a nice path to follow/ You'll be able to learn a ton of information from the manufacturers cut sheets for the panels and such.

Google search NICET.
