Switchgear is required to isolate faulty equipment, divide large networks into sections for repair purposes and reconfigure networks in order to restore power supplies and control other equipment. This book covers general principles and topics such as interruption techniques, fault level calculations, switching transients and electrical insulation. Solutions to practical problems associated with distribution switchgear are also included, making it an esssential text for power engineering students and practising engineers.High-voltage current limiting fuse-links are widely used for the protection of distribution cables and transformers. They commonly form part of fuse-switch combination units, or in some cases they are used as stand-alone devices to provide theanbsp;...
