High Voltage Engineering
High voltage engineering principles and techniques at your fingertips. Now there's an authoritative tool that gives you instant access to the state-of-the-art in virtually every area of high voltage engineering. High Voltage Engineering, Second Edition, by M. S. Naidu and V. Kamaraju, has been solid, liquid, and gas insulating materials and their applications and breakdown phenomena--generation and measurement of high AC, DC, and impulse voltages and currents--overvoltages triggered by lightning, switching surges, system faults, and other phenomena--high-voltage testing techniques plus testing of apparatus and equipment--and planning of high voltage laboratories. You'll also find new data on vacuum insulation, the breakdown of composite insulation/insulation systems, high voltage and extra-high voltage AC power transmission, and much more.
