The Guidebook for Linemen and Cablemen
The Guidebook for Linemen and Cablemen is aimed at apprentice linemen entering the trade, and will continue to serve as a valuable resource throughout their career. The text begins with an overview of the electric power system — how electricity gets from generating stations to customers. Basic concepts of electricity are explained and immediately applied to situations that linemen can use in the field. Key equipment used to distribute electricity is described and illustrated. There are complete chapters on conductors and cables, transformers, switchgear, revenue meters, and outdoor lighting. The special tools linemen use are described. Bucket trucks and digger derricks are covered. Safety is emphasized throughout. Because of its many color photos and diagrams, some students find this book easier to learn from than the venerable #703 Lineman's and Cableman's Handbook.
