Complex, technical aspects of electric distribution systems are explained in 'lay terms' in this new book providing readers an understanding of complex engineering issues even if they lack a technical background. After briefly covering electricity generation and transmission, chapters deal with primary distribution, distribution transformers, secondary characteristics, 'load' characteristics, other equipment and components, and then deals specifically with street lighting, systems operations, and metering. In addition, components and equipment used in distribution systems are readily identified and explained. Author Profile: Industry expert Wayne Beaty recently retired as managing editor of PennWell's Electric Light a Power magazine. He has spent a total of 45 years in the electric utility business serving in capacities such as engineer, engineering and management consultant and distribution engineer. He has also served as Manager of Member Services and Deputy Director of the Washington, D.C. office of the Electric Power Research Institute.Transformer. Connections. Single-phase service. Voltage ratings on the secondary windings of single-phase transformers are built for three-wire operation at voltages of 120/240 or for 240/480. Figure 7-3a shows a single- phase transformer.
