Power Cable Technology provides a precise understanding of the design, manufacture, installation, and testing of a range of electric power cables―from low-voltage, 1,000/1,100V cables to extra-high-voltage, 400kV cables―with reference to future trends in the industry.

The authors’ mantra is: know your cable. Thus, the book begins with a comprehensive overview of power cable design and manufacturing through the ages, and then:

  • Describes the characteristics of the materials currently used in the production of various power cables
  • Explains how to calculate the die orifice for drawing wires, how tolerance in manufacturing affects material weight and consumption, and how and why lubricants are used
  • Addresses the formation, stranding, and insulation of the electrical conductors, as well as the sheathing, armouring, and protective covering of the power cables
  • Delivers an in-depth discussion of quality systems, quality control, and performance testing
  • Covers the many nuances of cable installation, including laying, jointing, and terminating

Throughout, the authors emphasise consonance between design theory and practical application to ensure production of a quality power cable at a reasonable cost. They also underscore the importance of careful handling, making Power Cable Technology a must read for power cable engineers and technicians alike.

Review:

"This two-volume set thoroughly details system-level design, micro design, logic verification, and testing of integrated circuits. Electronic design automation (EDA) is a category of software tools for designing electronic systems such as printed circuit boards and integrated circuits. The tools work together in a design flow that chip designers use to design and analyze entire semiconductor chips. EDA is also referred to as electronic computer aided design (ECAD).
There is a wealth of information contained in these two volumes for readers working with or interested in learning about microprocessor design, testing, and verification."
John Shea, IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, March/April 2017 Issue

"... very useful for everybody in the cable industry and studying electrical engineering. ... theory meets with experience in this book. ... an extraordinary masterpiece in this field. Fills many gaps, and answers a lot of questions that never could have been answered so well before."
―Erkan Muslu, Colleague

"Power Cable Technology, offers an understanding of the design, manufacture, installation and testing of a range of electric power cables―from low-voltage, 1000/1100 V cables to extra-high-voltage, 400 kV cables. The book offers an overview of power cable design and manufacturing."
― Wire & Cable Technology International, June 2016 Issue
