This detailed and comprehensive reference presents the latest developments in power system insulation coordination—emphasizing the achievement of optimum insulation strength at minimum cost. Comprehensively covering a myriad of insulation coordination techniques, the book examines electrical transmission and distribution lines and substations. Supplemented with end-of-chapter problem sets and over 1700 literature citations, tables, drawings, and equations, the book focuses on the conventional (or deterministic) method of insulation coordination, as well as the probabilistic method with its emphasis on statistical analysis.

Good book. The contents may be difficult for first-timer, but eventually, the book articulates the idea on insulation coordination.

Useless!!!! I paid more than $100 and can not read it in my iphone. And even if I could, I would have to wait for the book to download fully again, since if I stay logged in the battery dries out. Waste of money. On a PC reads well and needless to say the book is outstanding!
