This book explains the basics of electrical power systems in practical, non-technical terms. It provides and overview of the concepts, terminology, design and construction practices, requirements for effective operation, and standards used in the electrical industry. The book does not assume that the reader has much previous knowledge or experience on this topic, but instead provides all necessary information here in the form of formulas, graphs, charts, diagrams, and other visual means to help clarify textual descriptions. This volume is particularly useful as an introduction to electrical systems for professionals in other, related industries, as well as for others interested in getting started on electrical work.
