Here, we’ve put together a practical, up-to-date guide on power distribution, focusing mostly on “medium” voltage (1-35 kV) power considerations, switchgear, power cables, transformers, power factor correction, grounding/earthing, lightning protection and network studies. You’ll gain useful, practical and technical know-how in these areas -- stuff not always covered by university or college programs.

Those who may find this guide useful include:

  • Electrical engineers
  • Design engineers
  • Project engineers
  • Electrical/maintenance technicians
  • Protection technicians
  • Maintenance technicians and supervisors

  • Determine short-circuit ratings quickly and effectively
  • Assess the influence of fault levels on switchgear ratings
  • Select the correct type of switchgear for the right application
  • Evaluate the advantages of modern state-of-the-art switchgear protection for your applications, including preventative maintenance information
  • Recognize the different applications for various cable insulation types
  • Know when and how to use single core cables vs three core cables
  • Specify correct power cable installation methods
  • Correctly utilize and protect power transformers
  • Assess and specify correct grounding throughout your electrical network
  • Determine the need for Power Factor Correction (PFC) for your environment
  • Assess the economic justification for installing PFC equipment
  • Correctly specify PFC equipment and be aware of practical consequences
  • Confidently use software to solve and predict simple power network problems
