Overview

Rating of Electric Power Cables in Unfavorable Thermal Environment is the first text to provide you with the computational tools and techniques needed to successfully design and install power cables in areas affected by such factors as outside heat sources, ground moisture, or impediments to heat dissipation. After thoroughly reviewing standard rating models, the author discusses several new techniques designed to improve cable ampacity, as well as new computational techniques for analysis of cyclic loads. To facilitate computational tasks he utilizes six representational model cables throughout the book, including transmission-class, high-voltage, distribution, and bundled types. End-of-chapter summaries, liberal numerical examples, and practical, real world applications make this text a valuable resource for making better design and operation decisions.
