Underground Distribution explains how to install underground cables, splice and terminate cables, install and connect padmount transformers, fuse lines, and maintain and troubleshoot underground circuits. It covers technical safety considerations, including preparing the job site, testing for gases, and entering confined spaces.
Compared with overhead lines, work on underground systems is more complicated to install and more expensive to repair when required. What's more, lineworkers must learn another set of job skills because underground work uses specialized techniques, materials, tools, terminology, equipment, and safety precautions.
