Design of Electrical Transmission Lines Structures and Foundations by Sriram Kalaga and Prasad Yenumula


I’m honored and grateful to be requested to write down the foreword to this well timed textbook, Design of Electrical Transmission Lines – Structures and Foundations. As an trade, we discover ourselves at a crossroads. Many trade professionals are nearing retirement as half of the massive ‘child growth’ era. They are going to take many years of information and expertise with them. Engineering curricula usually don’t embrace electrical utility design programs. We study the essential engineering rules and then, over time, learn to apply these details to our trade. As this transition happens, many of us are involved concerning the want for efficient and well timed information switch. How can we move on this important information to the following era?

Design of electrical transmission constructions requires correct utility of basic theories of power of supplies, engineering mechanics, constructions, soil mechanics and electrical engineering. Data of relevant trade codes and requirements can also be vital as they govern the design course of. Historically, engineers study the design course of on the job, from their mentors, colleagues, at seminars and workshops, and from utility proprietary manuals and different instruments. Within the absence of a particular reference ebook that comprises this steerage, the training course of can take years. I’m inspired that Sriram Kalaga and Prasad Yenumula have created this textbook in an try to bridge that hole. They’ve taken their many mixed years of expertise and put them right into a single location for the profit of the remaining of us.


Design of Electrical Transmission Lines – Structures and Foundations will present trade professionals a worthwhile useful resource from which to study. The detailed overview and design instruction, together with references to relevant requirements, will assist youthful trade professionals extra rapidly perceive the essential design rules. I additionally consider readers will profit from the numerous detailed pattern issues, design tables, {hardware} info and line design illustrations. I belief that you’ll discover worth in spending time on this ebook. It is going to show to be a worthwhile useful resource in your electrical utility profession!

The authors of “Design of Electrical Transmission Lines – Structures and Foundations’’ have created a singular engineering ebook for utility engineers. The topic is introduced from the point of view of civil engineers; nonetheless their presentation can vastly profit anybody concerned with engineering of transmission strains. The principle goal of this ebook is to help utility engineers in understanding fundamental design of transmission line constructions and foundations. For younger engineers it’s a nice useful resource for studying, understanding, and making use of the engineering rules required to efficiently design transmission line constructions and foundations. Whereas for the mature engineer the ebook turns into a fast reference which can be utilized to refresh their information of a selected topic.


Many of the theories and strategies within the ebook have pattern issues to assist of their understanding. These pattern issues additionally present wonderful “blueprints’’ for making use of these theories and strategies in actual life purposes. Illustrations, images, charts, and graphs are additionally successfully used all through the ebook to outline the subject material. It has been an honor to write down a foreword to this ebook written by Sriram Kalaga and Prasad Yenumula. The ebook’s complete engineering strategy displays their mixed information and expertise of transmission strains. Might this ebook show gratifying and worthwhile to utility engineers for a few years!

Electrical energy is now an indispensable requirement for the consolation, security and welfare of mankind within the 21st century. It doesn’t matter what the supply of energy era is, its closing vacation spot is the abode of the person shopper – an individual, trade, machine or group. This ebook offers with the how, what and the place the numerous engineering disciplines collaborate to make that journey occur. The design of overhead electrical transmission strains is a singular exercise which entails direct or oblique contributions of many different disciplines, each engineering and others.

The phrase “electrical’’ simply implies that the principle focus is transmittal of electrical energy or power from one level to a different. However that motion of energy additionally requires conductors, insulators, supporting constructions (or pylons), connecting {hardware}, good anchorage into floor whereas satisfying myriad technical guidelines, governmental rules and pointers geared toward security and reliability. This requires the involvement of civil engineers (structural and geotechnical), electrical engineers, surveyors (analog and digital), drafters (CAD) and lastly building contractors who construct what we design. Since transmission strains typically start and finish at substations, specialists in substation design and safety and management are additionally concerned.
