Designed for both novice and practicing electrical workers, Electricity: Power Generation and Delivery, 9th Edition, explores various types of generators and the delivery of single phase and three-phase power to the customer site. The ninth edition is updated to the 2008 National Electrical Code® and includes safety features from the power supply industry and current OSHA standards where applicable. This updated edition also features all-new coverage of generator maintenance and troubleshooting and expanded coverage of transfer switches, transformers, and connections. With a continued focus on the “hows” and “whys” of electrical system operation, readers will gain a solid understanding that goes beyond what to do in an electrical problem to why various electrical procedures are important.
