Eskom Power Series by the Eskom Research Group
|The Eskom Power Series is a collection of world class reference books, containing technical information and practical experience.|
Each book has been written and reviewed by teams of specialists and consultants who have worked within the utility environment for years. Initially the books were written by South Africans, but they have proved to be so successful that we extended our range to include experts from around the world. This move has enriched the Power Series and has strengthened the brand.
The prime aim of the series is to collate Eskom’s experience and to serve as a guide and legacy. Most of the authors hold full time jobs and these books are a testament to their stamina and passion. The Power Series, with its reliable, reputable and highly technical information, is a collection of books of which Eskom can be justifiably proud.
The Eskom Power Series is the brainchild of Logan Pillay who, along with a team of concerned Eskom personnel, championed the development of these valuable books.
The series currently has 8 volumes, but will continue to evolve as the industry grows and understanding increases.

|The Planning, Design and Construction of Overhead Power Lines.|
Hardcover - 772 pages - ISBN No. 9780620330428
This book embodies the planning philosophies, design principles and construction practices of Eskom. It is the culmination of decades of thought, study, research and the practical experience of many overhead power line engineers and researchers.
|Fundamentals and Practice of Overhead Line Maintenance|
Hardcover - 258 pages - ISBN No. 0-620-30906-7
Volume 2 focuses on providing the utility maintenance practitioner with comprehensive insight into the philosophy and theory of overhead line maintenance (132 kV and above), its management and effective application.
|The Practical Guide to Outdoor High Voltage Insulators|
Hardcover - 224 pages - ISBN No. 0-620-31074-X
This practical guide is for utility staff and consulting engineers responsible for the selection, installation and maintenance of insulators for outdoor high voltage lines and substations. Easy to use procedures, guidelines, decision tables, flowcharts, inspection sheets and software are included.
|Inductive Instrument Transformers and Protective Applications|
Hardcover - 860 pages - ISBN No. 0-620-37865-4
This volume deals with the design and operation of instrument transformers in a power utility environment. It starts at a basic level to provide sound knowledge for a beginner to the subject and to serve as a refresher for those more familiar with the topics.
|Theory, Design, Maintenance and Life Management of Power Transformers|
Hardcover - 337 pages - ISBN No. 978-0-620-38294-6
With its blend of knowledge and experience, this volume is a record of the understanding of power transformers as they are used in the power supply industry. Each chapter is largely standalone so the book is of real use to anyone with responsibilities in the generation, transmission and distribution of electric power.
|High Voltage Overhead Power Lines: Theoretical Calculations and Formulae for Conductor Installations|
Hardcover - 349 pages - ISBN No. 978-0-62042834-7
In suspending conductors from the towers of power lines, a complex series of processes is required; from the original design of the cables, to their initial stringing on the towers, to the final tensioning. This book covers every aspect of these processes in theoretical and practical detail.
|High Voltage Overhead Power Lines: Theoretical Calculations and Formulae for Transmission Line Towers|
Hardcover - 378 pages - ISBN No. 978-0-620-46585-4
Part 2 of Volume 6 takes the reader through the philosophy, theory, principles and practices of the design and fabrication of overhead power line structures.
|Corona in Transmission Systems: Theory, Design and Performance|
Hardcover - 527 pages - ISBN No. 978-0-620-49388-8
This, the latest in the series, is a comprehensive reference book on the corona design and performance considerations of high voltage ac, dc and hybrid ac/dc transmission lines. Treatment of the physical, analytical and experimental aspects of corona performance of ac and dc transmission lines is presented. The book provides a valuable resource for transmission line design engineers and for those involved in corona research.
