Installation and maintenance of electric motors. 11. Philosophy of quality systems and testing of electrical machines. 12. Protection of electric motors and selection of components. Appendix. II. Switchgear assemblies and captive (emergency) power generation: 13. LV switchgear and controlgear assemblies. 14. Testing of a metal-enclosed switchgear assemblies. 15. Instrument and control transformers: applications and selection. 16. Captive (emergency) power generation. 17. Voltage, surges - causes, effects and remedies. III. Voltage surges, over-voltages, circuit interrupters and grounding practices. 18. Surge arresters: applications and selection. 19. Circuit interrupters and their applications. 20. Temporary over-voltages and system grounding. 21. Grounding theory and ground fault protection schemes. 22. Grounding practices. IV. Power capacitors and reactive power controls: 23. Power capacitors: behaviour, switching phenomena and improvement of power factor. 24. System voltage regulation and improving power quality. 25. Making capacitor units and ratings of switching devices. 26. Protection, maintenance and testing of capacitor units. 27. Selection of power reactors. V. Busbar systems: 28. Carrying power through metal-enclosed bus systems. 29. Recommended practices for mounting buses and making bus joints. 30. Properties and ratings of current carrying conductors. 31. An isolated phase bus system. 32. Testing a metal-enclosed bus system. Index. "As a reference handbook for all professionals and practising engineers associated with design, engineering, production, quality assurance, protection and testing. Project engineering, project design and project implementation. A very useful book for every industry for selection, installation and maintenance of electrical machines. For practising engineers, it would be like keeping a gospel by their sides. For In-house Training Programmes: A unique handbook for in house training courses for industries, power generating, transmission and distribution organizations. For students and research scholars: As a reference textbook for all electrical engineering students in the classrooms and during practical training. It can bridge the gap between the theory of the classroom and the practice in the field. A highly recommended book for all engineering colleges worldwide, right from first year through final year. It will prove to be a good guide during higher studies and research activities. Subjects like Earthquake Engineering, intelligent switchgears, SCADA Power Systems, surges, temporary over voltages, surge protection, reactive power control and bus systems etc. are some pertinent topics that can form the basis of their higher studies and research work. The book shall help in technological and product development and give a fresh impetus to R&D." (jacket). Bookseller Inventory # 68242
