The electricity sector is currently experiencing many changes, such as the impact of high-end technologies, environmental issues, privatization of the power utilities, rising tariffs and power shortages. The sector is reinventing itself to overcome these challenges and is anticipating growth with the institution of electricity reforms and the entry of private companies.

Written by a highly acknowledged practitioner, Electrical Power Distribution dwells on all these aspects and covers the subject in its entirety.

  • Inclusion of two new chapters-Meter, Billing and Collection and Natural Distribution System
  • Revision of all the existing chapters in view of the Electricity Act, 2003
  • Addition of examples and problems in the existing chapters

    With this coverage, this book would be useful to engineers in the various electricity boards and companies engaged in electrical power distribution, as well as students of electrical engineering.

    Review:

    Pabla has prepared a highly technical volume with an up-to-date and comprehensive series of topics for graduate students or professionals and practitioners of power distribution engineering. The breadth of subject matter is impressive -- from system planning, load forecasting, and customer service issues, to nuts and bolts of distribution system component design, operation, and failure modes. Rarely has this much subject matter, presented in practical, applicable methodology, been made available in a single volume. The author provides in-depth coverage of the latest distribution automation technologies and addresses new demand-side (i.e., market-driven) issues such as reliability and power quality. Many operations policy and procedure topics are based on the author's native Indian distribution systems and their regulation. Still, the predominance of general technical problem discussions and engineering solutions make the text appropriate to a global user audience. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Graduate students through professionals -- S.R. Walk, Maine Maritime Academy
