This book includes my lecture notes for electrical power distribution book. The fundamentals of electrical power distribution are applied to various distribution system layouts and the function of common distribution system substations and equipment. The book introduces the design procedures and protection methods for power distribution systems of consumer installations. Circuit simulation and practical laboratories are utilised to reinforce concepts.

The book is divided to different learning outcomes
•    CLO 1- Discuss the fundamental concepts related to electrical distribution systems.
•    CLO 2- Explain the role of distribution substations and related equipment.
•    CLO 3- Outline standard methods for power distribution to consumer installations.
•    CLO 4- Apply short-circuit and over-load protection principles for electrical installations

a) CLO1- Discuss the fundamental concepts related to electrical distribution systems.
•    Principle of operation of transformers.
•    Explain the role of the distribution system in a power system, common distribution system layouts, and common voltages, voltage drops and regulation levels from transmission to distribution.
•    Discuss demand, power quality issues, calculate factors affecting design, and interpret the load curve profile for load demand.
•    Explain how tariff is calculated and charged consumers

b) CLO2- Explain the role of distribution substations and related equipment.
•    Explain the function of the distribution substation in view of distribution system layout

•    Explain the use of various types of bus-bar configurations in distribution substations.
•    Discuss the use of cabling, transformers, circuit breakers, switches, reclosers, and sectionalisers in a distribution system.

c) CLO3- Outline standard methods for power distribution to consumer installations.
•    Discuss commonly used methods for low voltage power supply systems (TN, TN-C, TN-C-S and TT).
•    Discuss the main features of a one-line, electrical installation diagram and related symbols.
•    Discuss electrical color codes and factors affecting cable installations.
•    Design an electrical feeder by (1) selecting the design current, (2) selecting the overload current protection, (3) determining the applicable correction factors, (4) selecting the current-carrying capacity of cable and cable sizing, and (5) calculating the allowable voltage drop in feeder

d)    CLO4- Apply short-circuit and over-load protection principles for electrical installations.
•    Explain the meaning of overload and over-current and methods of protection
•    Discuss the nature of electric shock, need for earthing, earth loop impedance, and principle of protective multiple earthing.
•    Explain the principles of fuse/MCB selection in relation to feeder protection under overload and short circuit fault conditions.
•    Explain the operation of earth leakage circuit breakers (ELCB) and residual current device (RCD).

    G. K. Chesterton’s highly influential treatise on one of the most controversial topics of the early twentieth century When G. K. Chesterton first published Eugenics and Other Evils in 1922, he seemed to be the lone voice of reason against the fashionable concept of selectively breeding a population for “desirable” traits. Though later generations came to associate eugenics with the horrors of the Third Reich, worldwide support for the philosophy was at an all-time high when Chesterton penned this brave and prophetic work. His unique combination of somber analysis and coruscating wit produces an argument too persuasive to ignore. Eugenics and Other Evils showcases Chesterton at the height of his rhetorical powers. His discussion of capitalism, socialism, and the concerns that guide our moral decisions is as pertinent today as the day it was penned.   This ebook has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability on all devices.

    In the 16th century, Nicolaus Copernicus dared to go against the establishment by proposing that Earth rotates around the Sun. Having demoted Earth from its unique position in the cosmos to one of mediocrity, Copernicus set in motion a revolution in scientific thought. This perspective has influenced our thinking for centuries. However, recent evidence challenges the Copernican Principle, hinting that we do in fact live in a special place, at a special time, as the product of a chain of unlikely events. But can we be significant if the Sun is still just one of a billion trillion stars in the observable universe? And what if our universe is just one of a multitude of others — a single slice of an infinity of parallel realities? In The Copernicus Complex, the renowned astrophysicist Caleb Scharf takes us on a scientific adventure, from tiny microbes within the Earth to distant exoplanets, probability theory, and beyond, arguing that there is a solution to this contradiction, a third way of viewing our place in the cosmos, if we weigh the evidence properly. As Scharf explains, we do occupy an unusual time in a 14-billion-year-old universe, in a somewhat unusual type of solar system surrounded by an ocean of unimaginable planetary diversity: hot Jupiters with orbits of less than a day, planet-size rocks spinning around dead stars, and a wealth of alien super-Earths. Yet life here is built from the most common chemistry in the universe, and we are a snapshot taken from billions of years of biological evolution.A Macmillan Audio production.

    The technology likely to have the greatest impact on the future of the world economy has arrived, and it's not self-driving cars, solar energy, or artificial intelligence.It's called the blockchain. 
    The first generation of the digital revolution brought us the Internet of information. The second generation-powered by blockchain technology-is bringing us the Internet of value: a new, distributed platform that can help us reshape the world of business and transform the old order of human affairs for the better. 
    Blockchain is the ingeniously simple, revolutionary protocol that allows transactions to be simultaneously anonymous and secure by maintaining a tamperproof public ledger of value. Though it's the technology that drives bitcoin and other digital currencies, the underlying framework has the potential to go far beyond these and record virtually everything of value to humankind, from birth and death certificates to insurance claims and even votes. 
    Why should you care? Maybe you're a music lover who wants artists to make a living off their art. Or a consumer who wants to know where that hamburger meat really came from. Perhaps you're an immigrant who's sick of paying big fees to send money home to loved ones. Or an entrepreneur looking for a new platform to build a business. 
    And those examples are barely the tip of the iceberg. This technology is public, encrypted, and readily available for anyone to use. It's already seeing widespread adoption in a number of areas. For example, forty-two (and counting) of the world's biggest financial institutions, including Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, and Credit Suisse, have formed a consortium to investigate the blockchain for speedier and more secure transactions. 
    As with major paradigm shifts that preceded it, the blockchain will create winners and losers. And while opportunities abound, the risks of disruption and dislocation must not be ignored. 
    Don Tapscott, the bestselling author of Wikinomics, and his son, blockchain expert Alex Tapscott, bring us a brilliantly researched, highly readable, and utterly foundational book about the future of the modern economy. Blockchain Revolution is the business leaders' playbook for the next decade and beyond.

    In this bracing book, Michael Chertoff makes clear that our laws and policies surrounding the protection of personal information, written for an earlier time, need to be completely overhauled in the Internet era. On the one hand, the collection of data—more widespread by business than by government, and impossible to stop—should be facilitated as an ultimate protection for society. On the other, standards under which information can be inspected, analyzed, or used must be significantly tightened. In offering his compelling call for action, Chertoff argues that what is at stake is not so much the simple loss of privacy, which is almost impossible to protect, but of individual autonomy—the ability to make personal choices free of manipulation or coercion. 
    Offering colorful stories over many decades that illuminate the three periods of data gathering we have experienced, Chertoff explains the complex legalities surrounding issues of data collection and dissemination today, and charts a path that balances the needs of government, business, and individuals alike.
