It covers safety in substations, how to read substation one-line drawings, installing station ground grids, how to pour and test concrete, rigging practices, erecting steel structures and buses, grounding equipment and fences, installing and testing control devices, and commissioning a substation. Well-illustrated with drawings and photos, including a 60-photos documentary of the construction of a new substation in Tennessee.
