Overview

Industrial Power Distribution provides a broad overview of electricity utilization in the industrial environment. It serves as both an introductory teaching book and a comprehensive reference. Based on over 20 years of experience in electric power system design and analysis, the author strikes a careful balance between application and theory, and provides insight to answer “why” instead of just how. Chapter topics cover utility source, medium voltage distribution, balanced fault calculations and protective equipment selection, unbalanced faults, raceway design, switchgear and motor control centers, ladder logic, motors and motor starting, shunt capacitors, and power quality. For use by industry professionals in review courses or as a reference manual.
