About This Book:
The continually increasing dependence on electricity in practically every on of life's endeavors calls for improvements in the quality standards of its supply. The deregulation of electric (and other) utilities, the events of September 11, 2001, and the blackouts on northeast North America, London and the Ita lian peninsula emphasize this need. This book takes a look at our current transmission systems and how loop circuits can substantially improve the reliability of transmission lines, essentially to provide a two-way feed to the consumer - insuring continuity of service should a fault develop on the circuit. Distribution systems are also covered, with information included on how small generating units can be connected directly to the distribution system, in the same manner as in larger cogenerating units.
