Newly revised and edited, this comprehensive volume brings you up-to-date information on the latest developments which impact planning and design of electrical distribution systems. Addressing topics such as mechanical designs, materials improvements, total quality control, computers and electronic circuitry, this book answers questions on everything from the basics of electrical and mechanical design to the selection of optimum materials and equipment. Beginning with initial planning considerations, the author takes you through a step-by-step guide covering each stage of mechanical design of the principal facilities, including substation installation. Also provided is a data-backed assessment of the latest advances in materials, conductors, insulators, transformers, regulators, capacitors, switches, and substation equipment. Other topics include key non-technical and operation considerations, such as safety, quality of service, load shedding, brownouts, demand controls and more. The third edition adds new data on polymer insulators, as well as expansion of coverage of cogeneration, distributed generation and underground systems.
