Monograph of IEEMA Articles of Dr. K. Rajamani

Field engineers are often constrained with time to go back to basics while involved in completing their task for design,testing, commissioning, operation or maintenance. At the same time technical articles, which addressed the problems faced by designers or field engineers, are quite rare.

The author Dr. Rajamani, one of APQI’s guiding Guru, brought out this latest version 4 – Monograph (compilation of articles) on hard core electrical subjects for field engineers explaining the theory and practice. Areas covered are Reactive Compensation, Earthing, Protection, Transformer and Back to Basics. All the articles, easy to understand and with simple pictorial explanation, are converted into a ‘book readable’ form. They are put in a single place when preparing this monograph. The readers will have the ‘feel’ of reading a book.

If the contents of this monograph enrich the professional life of APQI community readers, we and author would feel satisfied in meeting our mission to ‘share and care’. Readers are encouraged to send their comments, suggestions and remarks.
