Master’s thesis focuses on the questions of crane electrics compliance with electrical safety standards. Overview and short comparison of the world’s effective standards in the field is made in order to understand their demands. Basic concepts of a proper electrical circuit design are presented. Characteristics, construction and operation principles of overcurrent protective devices are studied in details. Electrics of the basic crane is designed according to the assumed customer’s demands, compliance with the requirements of the standards is checked. Solutions to achieve better compliance in some issues are proposed. Accent is made on the National Electrical Code (NEC) and standards by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) latests demands.
