IEEE-IAS CHICAGO CHAPTER
April 1 @ 7:30 am – 5:00 pm
ABOUT THE TOPIC:
The 2023 National Electrical Code (NEC) is the latest version of electrical code issued
by the NFPA. This program has been developed to review the new content within the
2023 NEC and differences from the previous 2020 NEC, in such a way so that the
material learned can be applied immediately with increased proficiency, safety and
efficiency. Specific areas within the 2023 NEC with substantial changes include:
• Residential Electrical Systems: Addresses ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCI)
for specific appliances, emergency disconnects, 10-ampere branch circuits, and
• Commercial and Industrial Electrical Systems: Includes requirements for the use
of “replacement panelboards,” arc-fault circuit interrupter (AFCI) protection,
disconnecting means in sight of luminaires using double-ended lamps to include
the LED type, and other considerations.
• Alternative Energy Systems and Energy Management: Addresses the
interconnection of distributed on-site power supplies with electric utility supplies,
the delineation between storage battery, emergency storage, and photovoltaic
electric systems, and more.
• Never-before Covered Systems and Equipment: Covers Class 4 fault-managed
circuits, hazardous locations in commercial and industrial cannabis production
facilities, equipotential bonding in areas with “splash pads,” and other
