Description & Coverage
Description:

The successful transmission of electrical power beneath the surface of the earth depends on a number of factors including ambient temperature, sheath bonding, cable laying depth, and especially the formation of dry zones around underground cables.

Environmental Impacts on Underground Power Distribution studies the factors which affect the maximum current rating of subterranean power cables as well as various methods to maximize electrical current transmission. Focusing on the latest tools, methodologies, and research in the field, this publication is designed for use by electrical engineers, academicians, researchers, and upper-level students.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Artificial Backfill Materials
  • Cable Losses
  • Cross Bonding System
  • Dry Zones
  • Electric Power Transmission
  • Heat Flux Density
  • Thermal Resistivity

Reviews and Testimonials

Gouda describes underground electrical cables and how the environment can impact them. His topics include underground power cable construction, underground cables layout, dry band formation around underground cable, the experimental analysis of backfill soils. the effect of dry-zone formation around underground power cables on their rating, sheath overvoltage due to external faults in a specially bonded cable system, electrical and water treeing of cable insulation, and partial discharges measurement for power cable insulation system.

This book begins to discuss getting the installation right the first time. Containing pages on the latest research, graphs, and formulas for installing underground power distribution correctly, this book can hardly be described as light reading. The book will likely be of most use to practitioners, academics, and advanced students. Additionally, the book can almost certainly serve as a reference point for practitioners. While the book does offer an introduction to underground power distribution in its early chapters, it also offers an easy reference for practitioners to refer to in particular situations that arise over the course of engineering practice.
Overall, the book will nestle well on the shelves of practitioners. While it may not be a daily reference, it will be a useful reference in specific situations. This book is recommended for academic libraries.
