I have gone through the book “A Guide to EHT Sub - Stations” Complied by Sri. K. Krishnaiah Practicing Transmission Engineer.
It covers various major equipment details required for construction of EHV Sub-Stations. He has written this book based on his field experience in construction of EHV Sub - Stations.
He has good experience in the construction activity in India and abroad and has illustrated standard practices required for construction and safe operation ot them. The Power Generation and Transmission is major part of supplying electrical energy to the public for their day to day requirements in Industries, commercial establishments and in domestic use. The safety precautions and operational requirements are given in detail by Sri K. Krishnaiah in this book. This book is very useful for field engieers working in construction organizations in their day to day works and for their improvement in associating with various operations of the equipments in the EHV Stations.
I appreciate the work done by Sri. Sri K. Krishnaiah in bringing this book indicating his rich experience in EHV Sub-Stations.
