Electrical Design of Overhead Power Transmission Lines, Hardback Book

Electrical Design of Overhead Power Transmission Lines Hardback


Complete coverage of power line design and implementation"This text provides the essential fundamentals of transmission line design.

It is a good blend of fundamental theory with practical design guidelines for overhead transmission lines, providing the basic groundwork for students as well as practicing power engineers, with material generally not found in one convenient book." IEEE Electrical Insultation MagazineElectrical Design of Overhead Power Transmission Lines discusses everything electrical engineering students and practicing engineers need to know to effectively design overhead power lines.

Cowritten by experts in power engineering, this detailed guide addresses component selection and design, current IEEE standards, load-flow analysis, power system stability, statistical risk management of weather-related overhead line failures, insulation, thermal rating, and other essential topics.

Clear learning objectives and worked examples that apply theoretical results to real-world problems are included in this practical resource.
