Composite insulators have been in service in electric power networks successfully for more than 40 years, and now up to the highest operating voltages. The present book extensively covers such insulators with a special focus on today’s prevalent material, which is silicone rubber. It includes a detailed description of the electrical and mechanical characteristics of composite insulators, their material properties, their design as well as typical applications and service experience. Particular attention is given to the mechanical behavior of long rod and post insulators, insulated cross-arms, interphase spacers and hollow core apparatus insulators. The state of the art on manufacturing procedures and the selection and dimensioning of the necessary power arc and corona fittings is presented as well as evaluation tests of “old” insulators, i.e. insulators after many years in service. The closing chapter deals with an up to date overview of test procedures and IEC standards. The selection and the contents of the various subjects covered in this book are based on the authors’ more than thirty years of experience with a renowned European manufacturer of composite insulators and string hardware. Their long and active participation in the relevant CIGRE and IEC working bodies adding to this experience. This book is therefore addressed to practicing engineers from electric utilities and the industry, as well as to academic professionals.

Preface The Electrical Engineer's Reference Book was first published in 1945: its original aims, to reflect the state of the art in electrical science and technology, have been kept in view throughout the succeeding decades during which subsequent editions have appeared at regular intervals. Publication of a new edition gives the opportunity to respond to many of the changes occurring in the practice of electrical engineering, reflecting not only the current commercial and environmental concerns of society, but also industrial practice and experience plus academic insights into fundamentals. For this 16th edition, thirtynine chapters are either new, have been extensively rewritten, or augmented and updated with new material. As in earlier editions this wide range of material is brought within the scope of a single volume. To maintain the overall length within the possible bounds some of the older material has been deleted to make way for new text. The organisation of the book has been recast in the following format with the aim of facilitating quick access to information. General Principles (Chapters 1±3) covers basic scientific background material relevant to electrical engineering. It includes chapters on units, mathematics and physical quantities, electrotechnology and network analysis. Materials & Processes (Chapters 4±10) describes the fundamentals and range of materials encountered in electrical engineering in terms of their electromechanical, thermoelectric and electromagnetic properties. Included are chapters on the fundamental properties of materials, conductors and superconductors, semiconductors, insulation, magnetic materials, electroheat and materials processing and welding and soldering. Control (Chapters 11±16) is a largely new section with six chapters on electrical measurement and instruments, industrial instrumentation for process control, classical control systems theory, fundamentals of digital control, microprocessors and programmable controllers. Power Electronics and Drives (Chapters 17±20) reflect the significance of upto 50% of all electrical power passing through semiconductor conversion. The subjects included of greatest importance to industry, particularly those related to the area of electrical variable speed drives, comprise power semiconductor devices, electronic power conversion, electrical machine drives, motors and actuators. Environment (Chapters 21±25) is a new section of particular relevance to current concerns in this area including lighting, environmental control, electromagnetic compatibility, health and safety, and hazardous area technology. Power Generation (Chapters 26±29) sees some rationalisation of contributions to previous editions in the largely mechanical engineering area of prime movers, but with an expanded treatment of the increasingly important topic of alternative energy sources, along with further chapters on alternating current generators and batteries. Transmission and Distribution (Chapters 30±38) is concerned with the methods and equipment involved in the delivery of electric power from the generator to the consumer. It deals with overhead lines, cables, HVDC transmission, power transformers, switchgear, protection, and optical fibres in power systems and aspects of installation with an additional chapter on the nature of electromagnetic transients. Power Systems (Chapters 39±43) gathers together those topics concerned with present day power system planning and power system operation and control, together with aspects of related reactive power plant and FACTS controllers. Chapters are included on electricity economics and trading in the liberalised electricity supply industry now existing in many countries, plus an analysis of the power supply quality necessary for modern industrialised nations. Sectors ofElectricity Use (Chapters 44±49) is a concluding section comprising chapters on the special requirements of agriculture and horticulture, roads, railways, ships, aircraft, and mining with a final chapter providing a preliminary guide to Standards and Certification. Although every effort has been made to cover the scope of electrical engineering, the nature of the subject and the manner in which it is evolving makes it inevitable that improvements and additions are possible and desirable. In order to ensure that the reference information provided remains accurate and relevant, communications from professional engineers are invited and all are given careful consideration in the revision and preparation of new editions of the book. The expert contributions made by all the authors involved and their patience through the editorial process is gratefully acknowledged. M. A. Laughton D. F.

This detailed and comprehensive reference presents the latest developments in power system insulation coordination—emphasizing the achievement of optimum insulation strength at minimum cost. Comprehensively covering a myriad of insulation coordination techniques, the book examines electrical transmission and distribution lines and substations. Supplemented with end-of-chapter problem sets and over 1700 literature citations, tables, drawings, and equations, the book focuses on the conventional (or deterministic) method of insulation coordination, as well as the probabilistic method with its emphasis on statistical analysis.

The interstate integration of power grids provides multiple advantages concerning operation security, integration of renewable energy as well as energy trading. Due to these facts grid interconnections, such as ENTSO-E in Continental Europe, expand continually since its establishment. Due to the increasing scale and distance of interconnected power systems as well as an increasing number of countries involved with increasing complexity of operation, comprehensive R&D and innovations are urgently required to assure reliable and efficient operation of power systems. In this book new tools and methods are presented for monitoring, control and protection of large scale power systems. These tools and methods consider Smart Grid technologies based on wide area data exchange in combination with modern measurement devices, such as PMUs and advanced network controllers such as FACTS and HVDC systems. Within this topic the impact and reliability of different communication technologies play a key role. The material of this book is based on final results from the international research project ICOEUR “Intelligent Coordination of Operation and Emergency Control of EU and Russian Power Grids”, supported by the European Commission and the Russian Federal Agency of Science and Innovation. This book provides a great value for professional power system engineers as well as for students interested in topics related to large scale power system monitoring, control, protection and operation.
