GrigsbyAuthors (google) : Leonard L. GrigsbyPublisher : CRC PressLanguage : EnglishPublication Date : 2001File Format : pdfCategories : Technology & Engineering------------------------------------------Description (user) : The astounding technological developments of our age depend on a safe, reliable, and economical supply of electric power. It stands central to continued innovations and particularly to the future of developing countries. Therefore, the importance of electric power engineering cannot be overstated, nor can the importance of this handbook to the power engineer. Until now, however, power engineers have had no comprehensive reference to help answer their questions quickly, concisely, and authoritatively-A one-stop reference written by electric power engineers specifically for electric power engineers.------------------------------------------Table of contents : The Electric Power Engineering Handbook......Page 2The Electrical Engineering Handbook
