Editorial Reviews

Review by: S. R. Walk, Maine Maritime For the experienced professional or the new graduate student, this book provides a broad compendium of advanced yet practical knowledge in the art of power transformer design. The individual authors provide clear and concise presentations of electrical and physical design criteria, and advanced techniques for manufacturing, testing, and monitoring. It is impressive that there is ample theoretical background for the reader's better understanding of the many standardized and recommended design calculations. The authors reference all relevant international standards for power transformer materials, design, testing, installation, and monitoring. They are to be commended for discussing various component failure modes and describing maintenance and condition monitoring needs. They address the full range of power transformers, including modern specialty transformers such as rectifier transformers and power reactors. The occasional slip in grammar or word usage is easily forgiven when balanced against the wealth of practical material available in this one volume. Summing Up: Essential. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals.
