Hi all. I was looking for some recomendations on good books dealing with switchgear. Something that will cover how it works, installation, testing, operation, etc. Also, any books on Generation, Transmission, and Distrobution. Network protectors, network transformers, etc. I have just ordered "Distributed Switchgear" was wondering if anyone has any feedback on that. Well, guess thats it. thanks!

For North American systems, the 'red' and 'green' books are probably the most popular, and the full set is also available on CDROM. http://standards.ieee.org/colorbooks/

When you’ve absorbed all that, see http://standards.ieee.org/catalog/olis/allpe.html
