Electrical Insulation for Rotating Machines: Design, Evaluation, Aging, Testing, and Repair, 2nd Edition.
This edition was updated by two of us, Greg Stone and Ian Culbert. Given the developments in rotating machine insulation in the past decade, readers will see expanded information on the effect of drives on insulation, the addition of a number of relatively new failure mechanisms, and new diagnostic tests. Many more photos of deteriorated insulation systems have been added in this edition. Many more references have been added, and recent changes in IEEE and IEC standards have been incorporated. We have also added descriptions of the insulation systems used by Chinese and Indian machine manufacturers. The information on Chinese systems came from Mr. Yamin Bai of North China EPRI. Mr. Bai and his colleagues were also responsible for the Chinese version of the first edition of this book. New appendices were added, which give detailed information on the insulation systems used by many manufacturers, as well as insulation material properties. These tables first appeared in a US Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) document that is long out of print. However, given the number of machines still using these systems and materials, we thought it will be useful to include the information here.
We again would like to thank our spouses, Judy and Anne, and also our employer, Iris Power L.P. We are also grateful to Ms. Resi Zarb for help in organizing and editing the second edition. Finally, we thank the readers of the first edition who took time to point out errors and omissions in the first edition.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
GREG C. STONE, PhD, is an electrical engineer working at Iris Power L.P. in Toronto, Canada (a company he helped to form). Prior to that, he worked for the Research Division of Ontario Hydro, which at that time was the largest electric power utility in North America.
EDWARD A. BOULTER, Lt. Commander (Ret.), USN Reserves, is now a consulting engineer. Previously he spent nearly forty years working as project/senior engineer and technical team leader designing machine insulation systems at General Electric.
IAN CULBERT currently works as a rotating machine engineer at Iris Power L.P. in Toronto, Canada. Prior to that, he was a specialist at Ontario Hydro (now Ontario Power Generation Inc.) where he provided technical support to power station project engineering, operations and maintenance staff on the design, specification, maintenance, and repair of all types of motors and standby generators. Prior to that, he was a motor designer.
HUSSEIN DHIRANI was a senior generator design engineer at Ontario Power Generation.
