You can view this page in:

The ABB Switchgear Manual has been revised completely, and the 12th edition of the book about switchgear technology can be ordered now directly from ABB.


Since 1948, the ABB Switchgear Manual has served technicians in planning and commissioning, as well as students and other interested technicians who work in the field of switchgear technology and related areas.

Starting with fundamental physical and technical terms, the book offers a broad overview about switchgear technology at all voltage levels, power systems planning, protection and control technologies and transformers. With this revision, the book is updated with sections about state-of-the-art technology. Due to current relevance, especially topics regarding HVDC and associated cable technology as well as grid connection of offshore wind farms were enlarged. 

In addition all current IEC/DIN/EN norms were updated and form the basis of this manual. 

With lots of formulas, the ABB Switchgear Manual is a very good reference book, providing basic information about electrical engineering.
