Electrical Safety Engineering, Third Edition covers the scientific principles, legislation, guidelines, and standards of electrical safety. This book is organized into six parts encompassing 20 chapters. Part 1 considers the nature of electrical injuries, the mechanical causes of electrical failures, and electrical insulation failure. Parts 2 and 3 describe the mechanism of breakdown and failure of electrical equipment, as well as the concept of circuit protection, with emphasis on the earthing principles and double insulation. Parts 4 and 5 explore the principles and application of electronic and solid-state control systems, fires, and explosion hazards. Part 6 focuses on the industrial supply and distribution of current and voltage. This book will prove useful to electrical engineers, electricians, and technicians.Most heavy electrical equipment may be tested without difficulty, e.g. the condition of the oil in transformers and ... The settings of protective devices can also be checked, e.g. by current injection, but care is necessary to ensure that any ...
