Electrical Power Equipment Maintenance and Testing, Second Edition (Power Engineering)

Containing references, equations, and photographs including numerous tables and test connection diagrams, this valuable resource is useful for:
electrical and electronics
power and energy engineers and technicians
maintenance and operational personnel at electrical facilities
plant managers and electrical utility personnel
technical personnel from electrical consulting and construction firms, manufacturing companies, electrical trade associations, and electrical testing companiesand graduate-level students in these disciplines.Table of ContentsThe second edition of a bestseller, this definitive text covers all aspects of testing and maintenance of the equipment found in electrical power systems serving industrial, commercial, utility substations, and generating plants. It addresses practical aspects of routing testing and maintenance and presents both the methodologies and engineering basics needed to carry out these tasks. It is an essential reference for engineers and technicians responsible for the operation, maintenance, and testing of power system equipment. Comprehensive coverage includes dielectric theory, dissolved gas analysis, cable fault locating, ground resistance measurements, and power factor, dissipation factor, DC, breaker, and relay testing methods.
