Management of Transmission and Distribution Systems

£45.00

Product description

Fairmont Press hardback with no DJ. Black binding very good, few light marks, gilt lettering on spine bright. Few light grubby marks to page edges, all pages very clean and good. This is the result of the amalgamation and updating of two previous volumes written by this author (Efficient Utility Operation and Unique Power System Problems). Despite the rather daunting title - accurate but daunting, the writing is racy and many of the views iconoclastic. The reader is left in no doubt concerning Seevers' views on bureaucracy and inspection which are set within the technical descriptions of electrical transmission and distribution in the US. While regulators are clearly a bane on his existence, he has salty views also on computers, making the very reasonable point that a service industry such as electricity supply will always have to work through and with human beings - "Many applications of the computer are a waste of money and tend to denigrate the unique value of experienced human beings."
