Here is the 2nd, revised and updated release of the popular publication, which continues to serve as one of the best available reference sources on all medium-voltage/low-voltage electrical power cables; it is cataloging all relevant technical characteristics of the cables and is therefore assuring the eventual success for the manufacture, correct choice, installation and operation plus, of course, subsequent technical maintenance of the electrical cables. Some of the segments related to the insulation of the electrical cables and to the field assessment were revamped in order to make them reflect the latest transformations in the electrical industry; moreover, some completely new chapters were added, for example ones touching the location of the underground faults, thermal resistivity etc. The author of the book, William A. Thue, did pay so much of the attention to the historical perspective of electrical cables, and addressed the basic dielectric theory of electrical cables, major technical characteristics of electro-conductors and cables. The electrical properties of various insulating materials and shielding of power cables, jackets, sheaths and armors have also been dealt with in this publication. Finally, the last part of this publication has been dedicated to the various relevant industry specifications and standards.
