The Philippine Electrical Code sets out the minimum requirements for the design, construction, and testing of electrical installations. The requirements are intended to protect persons and livestock from electric shock, fire and physical injury hazards.
This wiki will provide typical electrical installation scenarios which complies with the minimum requirements of the Philippine Electrical Code.
There are many ways to comply with the Philippine Electrical Code. This wiki is intended to be a design guide for common electrical installations. While the principles apply similarly to larger and more complex installations, it is not the intention of this wiki to attempt to address the detailed design requirements of those installations. This wiki will be reviewed periodically to take account of the changes in the requirements of the Philippine Electrical Codes and other relevant standards.
The Philippine Electrical Code (PEC) is a modified version of the National Electrical Code. The modifications were made to suit the local Philippine environment and conversion into the SI system. There are still lots of work that need to be done with the PEC. One important matter to point out is the use of IEC in the Philippine product standards. The PEC should be able to address these changes accordingly.
