Rating of Electric Power Cables in Unfavorable Thermal
Environment is the first text to provide you with the
computational tools and techniques needed to successfully design
and install power cables in areas affected by such factors as
outside heat sources, ground moisture, or impediments to heat
dissipation. After thoroughly reviewing standard rating models, the
author discusses several new techniques designed to improve cable
ampacity, as well as new computational techniques for analysis of
cyclic loads. To facilitate computational tasks he utilizes six
representational model cables throughout the book, including
transmission-class, high-voltage, distribution, and bundled types.
End-of-chapter summaries, liberal numerical examples, and
practical, real world applications make this text a valuable
resource for making better design and operation decisions.
