The Classic Electrical Engineering Guide — Now Massively Updated with New Material on Power Generation, Distribution, Systems Operation, and More

First published in 1907, the Standard Handbook for Electrical Engineers has provided generations of students and professionals with hands-on coverage of electrical engineering equipment, design, and methods. The Fifteenth Edition of this classic guide has now been updated and streamlined with an easy-access format to help you meet the challenges of the twenty-first century.

Brimming with solutions to day-to-day problems in electrical systems design, operation, and maintenance, this unmatched resource arms you with the expertise of over 60 best-of-breed contributors.

Packed with 800 detailed illustrations, the new Fifteenth Edition includes:

  • The latest material on power generation and power systems operation
  • In-depth case studies on the causes of major power outages
  • Thorough updating of all code-related information
  • Entirely new sections on electric power grid operations, managing outages and blackouts, and electrical power generation

Inside This Essential EE Tool:

* Electric and Magnetic Circuits * Measurements and Instruments * Properties of Materials * Power Generation * Power System Components * Alternate Sources and Converters of Power * Economics of Bulk Electric Power Supply * Project Economics * AC Transmission Systems * DC Power Transmission * Power Systems Operations * Substations * Power Distribution * Wiring Design * Motors and Drives * Applications of Electric Power * Power Quality * Electrochemistry * Computer Applications * Illumination * Lighting and Overvoltage Protection


This bible for electrical engineering gives professionals extensive, component-by-component details they need in one complete volume. The handbook brings together state-of-the-art industry practices and techniques, formulas, theorems, illustrations, and more, making the field’s technology more accessible than ever.


The Standard Handbook for Electrical Engineers has served the EE field for nearly a century. Originally published in 1907, through 14 previous editions it has been a required resource for students and professionals. This new 15th edition features new material focusing on power generation and power systems operation – two longstanding strengths of the handbook that have recently become front-burner technology issues. At the same time, the entire format of the handbook will be streamlined, removing archaic sections and providing a quick, easy look-up experience. LANGUAGE: eng
