Only available as e-book!The incremental application of unearthed electrical supply systems (IT systems), requires a careful selection of suitable protective measures, e.g. insulation monitoring devices (IMDs). The combination of IT systems with insulation monitoring is an innovative protective technique, with the great advantages of more efficient operational safety and reliability, better fire protection, accident prevention and more. The book gives a detailed description of the unearthed IT system and its application fields, in industry, mining, railway, marine/oil and in electric vehicles. The various measuring techniques involving insulation monitoring devices are discussed, with an in-depth description of the respective international standards series IEC 60364 "Low-voltage electrical installations – Part 1: Fundamental principles, assessment of general characteristics, definitions"; Part 4-41: "Protection for safety – Protection against electric shock"; Part 6: "Verification" and, IEC 60479 "Effects of current on human beings and livestock – Part 1: General aspects", amongst others.
