Overhead Power Lines presents not only the scientific and engineering basis for the electric and mechanical design, but also comprehensively describes all aspects of most recent technology, including the selection and design of components such as conductors, insulators, fittings, supports and foundations. The chapters on line survey, construction and maintenance address updated requirements and solutions. Reflecting the changing economic and technical environment of the industry, this publication introduces beginners to the full range of relevant topics of line design and implementation and serves as a valuable reference to engineers and technicians employed by overhead line operators, contractors and consulting companies. This first English-language edition, based on the 5th German-language edition, incorporates the latest international standards, edited by IEC, CENELEC, Cigre, the International Council of Large Electric Systems, in which the authors have long participated in, and contributed to.
