Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Addressed to electrical engineers and others concerned with safe, cost-effective power cable design and installation, Anders (Ontario Hydro Technologies) shares his experience through examples in selecting optimal cable ratings, equations used in the selection process, model calculation sheets, and theoretical considerations. The volume is organized around thermal modeling (cable construction, installations, circuit theory, heat transfer and rating equations); evaluation of parameters (dielectric losses, joule losses, thermal resistances and capacitances); and advanced topics (special cable installations, ampacity computations, and economic selection of conductor cross section). Appendixes on related topics; list of symbols used, and table of US cable sizes. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
