"The book uses clear descriptions and logical presentation of data to explain electrical power and its applications." EPN, October 2005 "This second edition of this popular reference book provides a very good overview of the underlying theory and operation of electrical power components and power systems...This book provides surprisingly good technical descriptions of the basic operating principles of electrical power equipment and would be useful to electrical engineers that need to familiarize themselves with certain areas. Other engineers or managers who specify, utilize, or design these components, also would benefit from reading this book." - IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, 2006
