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. With the sixth edition, the book celebrates its 30th anniversary - a testimony to the vast readership as well as the changes being experienced in this sector. Highlights of this edition: 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; and 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. The Instructors' Manual of the book has been revised thoroughly to supplement the updated contents.
