The world’s foremost electrical engineering "bible." Still the only single-volume guide to the entire field of electricity — its manufacture, transmission, distribution, measurement, and use — Standard Handbook for Electrical Engineers, 14th edition, edited by Donald G. Fink and H. Wayne Beaty, packs the expertise of over 60 best-of-breed contributors. Brimming with solutions to day-to-day problems in electrical system design, operation and maintenance, this unmatched resource arms you with:
fast-access data on units and definitions standards
properties of materials used in manufacturing electrical equipment and components
the economics of electrical systems
wiring design for commercial and industrial buildings
electrochemistry and electrometallurgy
and much, much more.
You also get up to speed on:
*High-voltage transmission systems
*Residential, commercial, and industrial power applications that deliver more efficient motors, lighting and transportation
*Energy conservation and efficient energy use
*Alternate energy sources such as solar and geothermal power, and energy storage systems
*Electric utility industry changes -- including competition — and how they affect operations, maintenance, and engineering methods
*Technological changes in instrumentation, metering, generation (especially nuclear and gas turbines), insulating materials, power quality

THE LANDMARK ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING REFERENCE
It's hard to think of the science and technology of electrical engineering without considering the one reference that has, for over 90 years, covered it like no other: the STANDARD HANDBOOK FOR ELECTRICAL ENGINEERS. Every technical breakthrough, every industry standard, every trend and defining issue--all have been a part of what has made the HANDBOOK a watershed reference for generations of engineers and technicians. One look at this new edition, featuring the insights of over60 expert contributors, and you'll see that this authoritative tradition is alive and well.
Now more than ever, this standard-setting reference continues to give you the definitive, 360 degree look at the world of electricity, covering its generation, transmission, distribution, measurement, and use--including all the technical aspects needed by engineers working with electrical systems.
IN THIS NEW FOURTEENTH EDITION, LOOK FOR:
* A greater emphasis on communications, reflecting its expanding role in electric utility operations
* Important new material on high-voltage transmission systems, which encompass high-voltage direct current systems designed to solve many of the interconnection problems of large power pools
* The latest strides in residential, commercial, and industrial applications of electrical powser, which result in more efficient motors, lighting, and transportation
* A focus on energy conservation and efficient energy use--plus a look at alternate energy sources such as solar power, geothermal power, and energy storage systems
* And more!
