Electric Cables Handbook provides a comprehensive and substantial coverage of all types of energy cables--from wiring and flexible cables for general use, to distribution, transmission and submarine cables. It includes information on materials, design principles, installation, operating experience and standards, and several appendices contain extensive data tables on commonly used cable types and their properties. Electric Cables Handbook is an extensive source of up-to-date and essential information for electrical engineers, contractors, supply authorities and cable manufacturers.
This authoritative collaboration by IEE and McGraw-Hill, provides the standard computations and information needed to calculate electric cable ratings. For electrical engineers and other specialists working with electric power cables, this reference provides direct access to essential data including: selection of cables and cost; computations for current ratings; applications and advanced techniques; clear explanations of basic theory.
