Of the "big three" components of electrical infrastructure, distribution typically gets the least attention. In fact, a thorough, up-to-date treatment of the subject hasn’t been published in years, yet deregulation and technical changes have increased the need for better information. Filling this void, the Electric Power Distribution Handbook delivers comprehensive, cutting-edge coverage of the electrical aspects of power distribution systems. The first few chapters of this pragmatic guidebook focus on equipment-oriented information and applications such as choosing transformer connections, sizing and placing capacitors, and setting regulators. The middle portion discusses reliability and power quality, while the end tackles lightning protection, grounding, and safety. The Second Edition of this CHOICE Award winner features: 1 new chapter on overhead line performance and 14 fully revised chapters incorporating updates from several EPRI projects New sections on voltage optimization, arc flash, and contact voltage Full-color illustrations throughout, plus fresh bibliographic references, tables, graphs, methods, and statistics Updates on conductor burndown, fault location, reliability programs, tree contacts, automation, and grounding and personnel protection Access to an author-maintained support website, distributionhandbook.com, with problems sets, resources, and online apps An unparalleled source of tips and solutions for improving performance, the Electric Power Distribution Handbook, Second Edition provides power and utility engineers with the technical information and practical tools they need to understand the applied science of distribution.

Complex, technical aspects of electric distribution systems are explained in 'lay terms' in this new book providing readers an understanding of complex engineering issues even if they lack a technical background. After briefly covering electricity generation and transmission, chapters deal with primary distribution, distribution transformers, secondary characteristics, 'load' characteristics, other equipment and components, and then deals specifically with street lighting, systems operations, and metering. In addition, components and equipment used in distribution systems are readily identified and explained. Author Profile: Industry expert Wayne Beaty recently retired as managing editor of PennWell's Electric Light & Power magazine. He has spent a total of 45 years in the electric utility business serving in capacities such as engineer, engineering and management consultant and distribution engineer. He has also served as Manager of Member Services and Deputy Director of the Washington, D.C. office of the Electric Power Research Institute.
