“This book provides comprehensive and detailed technical information on all aspects of silicone composite insulators especially from the overhead line point of view.
From a cable engineering user’s viewpoint , which is my interest , the book is also very useful as it effectively summarizes experience to date with composite insulators and the failure modes which can be expected .
It also includes a concise overview of the test standards and test methods applicable to composite insulators which is particularly helpful.
The book is written in a clear and easy to follow style with plenty of photos, diagrams and illustrations. A very wide ranging list of references is included at the end of each chapter.
Overall, I regard it as an excellent reference book on the subject of composite insulators”
