Distribution Switchgearby Stan Stewart
Synopses & Reviews
Switchgear plays a fundamental role within the power supply industry. It is required to isolate faulty equipment, divide large networks into sections for repair purposes, reconfigure networks in order to restore power supplies and control other equipment. This book begins with the general principles of the Switchgear function and leads on to discuss topics such as interruption techniques, fault level calculations, switching transients and electrical insulation; making this an invaluable reference source. Solutions to practical problems associated with Distribution Switchgear are also included.
Book News Annotation:
Covering general principles of the switchgear function, this reference for practicing engineers and power engineering students discusses topics such as interruption techniques, fault level calculations, switching transients, and electrical insulation, and offers solutions to practical problems associated with distribution switchgear. Chapters cover symmetrical and asymmetrical fault currents, operating mechanisms, primary and secondary switchgear, high-voltage fuse-links, and switchgear type tests. Stewart is retired from the switchgear industry. The book is distributed in the US by Books International.
