Written in an easy-to-understand style, the text acquaints students with the physical phenomena and technical problems associated with high voltages in power systems. A complete quantitative description of the topics in high voltage engineering is difficult because of the statistical nature of the electrical breakdown phenomena in insulators. With this in mind, this book has been written to provide a basic treatment of high voltage engineering qualitatively, and wherever necessary quantitatively.
Special emphasis has been laid on breakdown mechanisms in gaseous dielectrics as it helps students gain a sound conceptual base for appreciating high voltage problems. The origin and nature of lightning and switching overvoltages occurring in power systems have been explained and illustrated with practical observations. Protection of high voltage insulation against such overvoltages has also been discussed lucidly. Concept of modern digital methods of high voltage testing of insulators, transformers, and cables has been explained.
Solved problems help students develop a critical appreciation of the concepts discussed. End-of-chapter questions enable students to obtain a more in-depth understanding of the key concepts.
The book includes a large body of original data, documentation and field interviews with major players as well as stakeholders. It is an important reference resource for students of politics and international relations, especially for those involved in South Asian studies and conflict studies. It is also an informative read for decision-makers, bureaucrats dealing with the North East and those involved in counter-insurgency operations in the area.

Guacanajarí, que hasta el momento convivía felizmente con Ainaima y sus hijos, cae enamorado de una hermosa extranjera. Pese a que establece una alianza con Cristóbal Colón, los abusos de los conquistadores provocan que sus súbditos, liderados por el cacique Caonabo, se rebelen valientemente. El rey, que se opone al ataque, es herido de muerte por Caonabo y, cuando regresa Colón a la isla con numerosos refuerzos, percibe que se acerca su final y el de su pueblo. Arrasadas las tierras de sus ancestros, muertos Ainaima y sus hijos, perdida la esperanza de volver a ver a la extranjera, Guacanajarí ciñe justo antes de morir su corona de oro en la frente al gran Caonabo, pues comprende que el cacique, apresado a su vez por los extranjeros, no pretendía sino salvar a los suyos.
Guacanajarí narra los hechos acaecidos desde el sepulcro; así concluye el cuento: "el alma se separó del cuerpo y dormí en el sepulcro hasta hoy, que el destino quiere que cante por última vez los días de mi triste vida".
Anacaona nos lleva a un majestuoso relato, narrado desde el fondo de su alma, con tal sentimiento que nos hace sentir en nuestra propia alma su dolor, tal como ella misma concluye: "Los ojos los fijé en el cielo, y el espíritu, lleno de caridad y de justicia, puro como las aguas del Juna, a donde nací, se desprendió de la cárcel que lo encerraba para subir a la eternidad de los inmortales…"
Quibiam, gran cacique guerrero, no pudo ser vencido por su poderío y su gran valentía para el combate. Se enfrentó contra las expediciones de los españoles por casi nueve años. Mediante un ardid fue capturado, pero por su astucia logró escapar y reunirse con sus guerreros y durante varios años luchó contra los españoles. Hay hipótesis que señalan que Quibiam es el mismo cacique llamado Urracá del gran cacicazgo de Veragua.
Varios siglos han pasado desde sus muertes, pero la onda de los siglos han detenido su interminable movimiento, y en las eternas noches ha penetrado el rayo divino de la inspiración, para inmortalizar la historia de los desventurados reyes de Kiskeya, Ayiti y de Veragoa y la generación infeliz de sus valientes tribus. El canto de estos valientes lo escuchará el mundo, y durará para siempre, mientras el sol alumbre la tierra…

The book talks about the interconnectedness of globalisation with social and economic systems and how links develop with reference to both polity and common people's movements. The book provides a new way of understanding the constitution of rights with the help of micro-histories drawn from diverse fields, such as environmental rights, law, information, and labour studies in India.
The book examines how rights have been redefined in this era of globalisation and how India is still plagued by the constant tension between 'social' yearning for democratic values and 'economic' competition for unhindered profits.

Chapter 3 closely examines propagation constant and characteristic impedance of a transmission line. The model of a transmission line can explain most of the electrical or electronics problems. Some of these problems include redundancy in power systems, and grounding noise voltage.
Often, an engineer needs to find the cause of a failure in a system. He must have, at his disposal, a systematic method of testing to find the most probable cause of failure. This book recommends the boundary approach in finding such a cause. Testing may involve characterizing a device or a signal. An example of how an unknown device may be characterized is shown in this book.
In this book, a grounding noise voltage is treated as a signal. It is, perhaps, the most common cause of failures in electronic systems. To illustrate an example of how a signal may be characterized and address grounding itself, Chapter 7 shows experiments on how a grounding noise voltage may be minimized. Finally, Chapter 8 is a recommended approach in designing a grounding system.
The continuity and quality of electricity delivered safely and economically by today’s and future’s electrical power networks are important for both developed and developing economies. The correct modelling of power system equipment and correct fault analysis of electrical networks are pre-requisite to ensuring safety and they play a critical role in the identification of economic network investments. Environmental and economic factors require engineers to maximise the use of existing assets which in turn require accurate modelling and analysis techniques. The technology described in this book will always be required for the safe and economic design and operation of electrical power systems.
The book describes relevant advances in industry such as in the areas of international standards developments, emerging new generation technologies such as wind turbine generators, fault current limiters, multi-phase fault analysis, measurement of equipment parameters, probabilistic short-circuit analysis and electrical interference.

Unas páginas llenas de amistad, desengaños, amor, lealtad, traiciones... protagonizadas por Marat, Madame Roland, Desmoulins, Danton, Madame Stael, Robespierre...
The book starts with the general concepts of energy conversion and basic circuit elements, followed by a review of the mathematical tools. The discussion goes on to introduce the concepts of energy storage in magnetic field, electrical circuits used in rotary electro-mechanical devices and three-phase systems with their transformation. The book, further, makes the reader familiar with the modern aspects of analysis of machines like transient and dynamic operation of machines, asymmetrical and unbalanced operation of poly-phase induction machines, and finally gives a brief exposure to space phasor concepts.
Also addressed are other power electronic devices for improving power quality in Solid State Transfer Switches and Fault Current Limiters. Applications for these technologies as they relate to compensating busses supplied by a weak line and for distributed generation connections in rural networks, are included.
