He is the director of the short-course on insulators that is offered annually at Arizona State University and also has been given on demand to numerous organizations worldwide.Review:
The practical needs of an engineer were considered in writing this book. Technical features and economic factors to be considered in insulator selection are included. The advantages and limitations of each insulator type is provided for porcelain, glass and nonceramic materials. -- IEEE Power Engineering Review
Those who design, test or apply high voltage outdoor insulators will find this a useful and practical book. The authors nicely summarize the uses and requirements of insulators. Then they describe in detail the design and manufacture of porcelain, glass and polymeric type insulators. The detailed drawings of the insulator design, type of materials and the procedures used by manufacturers to produce these insulators make this a very useful book. -- IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine
