From the Publisher"… an excellent balance of theory, applications, and solutions of wide ranging issues on utility distribution systems. Great resource!"
—Surya Santoso, The University of Texas at Austin
"A major update of an excellent book for a distribution engineer wanting to know about the fundamentals of power distribution networks. Brand new material covering or updating important issues missing from the first edition. An essential handbook well worth checking out!"
—Dimitris P. Labridis, Professor, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece
"Mr. Short explains in a very clear language, using a minimum of mathematical tools, the basic phenomena and the mechanisms that characterize the flow of energy in our distribution systems. … is a must read for the young and the old engineer involved in the generation, transmission and distribution of electric energyI welcome this book. It will occupy an easy to reach spot on the shelf of my engineering lIbrary."
—Alexander E. Emanuel, Worcester Polytechnic Institute
"This book, based on the extensive experience of Mr. Short, provides an excellent balance between practice and theory, without being tedious. In this context, the book really can be named as a handbook, since it can be used as an everyday reference for utility engineers. In addition, this book is more than "only a handbook" for practical engineers. It presents useful information in an accessible way to be used by students and younger engineers to build their understanding about the best practices in distribution systems. Each important topic is discussed in detail, including not only the relevant facts, but also…different possibilities used to solve the problems. I have been using the first edition of this book for the last ten years in my research and in my classes, and certainly, I will use this new edition for many years ahead."
