Abstract
In the electrical power distribution and transmission system for urban and rural area, overhead lines are usually in major practice. Underground system was not favourable in developing and under developed countries. The main reason behind it was the much higher capital investment of underground cabling with respect to overhead bare conductors. But with the advancement in technology and market competition its cost is manageable for urban areas. This system requires more skills and planning for installation, jointing and termination rather than overhead lines. The presented paper is applied on power distribution system up to 33 KV.
Keywords: LT/HT power cables, Installation, Jointing, Termination, Testing.
1. Introduction
The fist step for the cabling system is selection of cable sizes. Voltage drop is the considerable factor for the selection of LT cables but in case of HT cable selection depend on short circuit current and current carrying capacity. After selection of cable there will be an inspection visit at manufacturing unit before dispatch. There will be numerous testing on cables to ensues the acceptibity as per electrical standards and site requirements.
Essential testes are listed as below:Tensile test ( for Aluminium conductor)
Wrapping test ( for aluminium conductor)
Annealing test ( for copper conductor)
Thickness of insulation and sheath
High voltage testing
Insulation resistance test
Hot set test ( for XLPE cables only)
2. Cable installation
After satisfactory testing the cable drums will be dispatched to site for…...

Methodological Issues in Management Research

...Methodological Issues in Management Research Lee Sechrest, PhD Professor Department of Psychology University of Arizona Room 312 Tuscon, AZ 85721 White paper prepared for the Department of Veterans Affairs Management Research in VA Workshop, sponsored by the HSR&D Management Decision and Research Center November 19-20, 2001 Methodological Issues in Management Research Managers want to make good decisions. Any decisions will, by definition, be made on the basis of some presumed information. Even if a decision were to be made by throwing dice, that process would almost certain stem from “information” indicating that no better basis for the decision could be discerned, e.g., that a randomly determined choice would be likely to be better than a decision open to bias. At least to some extent, it is axiomatic that the better the information, the better the decisions. It is useful to distinguish between data, facts, and information. Data are simply observations, usually in the form of numbers thought to represent some systematic process underlying them, i.e., a process generating the numbers. Data do not mean anything or tell us anything until they are interpreted in some way. Merely to have an observation that on a particular day 43 patients were reported to have received a particular service is not in itself meaningful. Facts are merely data elevated in confidence to a point of suggested certainty. The observation that 43 patients received a service may......

Personnel Management Research in Agribusiness (Executive Summary) One of the challenges faced by agribusinesses in the 21st century is the attraction, motivation, and retention of sufficient and qualified labor. However, personnel management research has mostly focused on other industries. Accordingly, agribusiness managers have little to rely on, when developing personnel policies and procedures. Once a business has grown beyond the labor capacity of the immediate family, personnel management becomes an issue and practices......

...their research topic. An in-depth interview is a qualitative research technique that allows person to person discussion. It can lead to increased insight into people thoughts, feelings, and behavior on important issues. This type of interview is often unstructured and therefore permits the interviewer to encourage an informant (or respondent) to talk at length about the topic of interest. The in-depth interview uses a flexible interview approach. It aims to ask questions to explain the reasons underlying a problem or practice in a target group. It is the technique to gather ideas and to gather information. Both the literature survey and in-depth interview methods are contributing one another in term of developing a theoretical framework. A typical theoretical framework with the help of both literature survey and in-depth interview approach provides a schematic description of relationships between and among independent, dependent, moderator, control, and extraneous variables so that a researcher can easily comprehend the theorized relationships. Therefore, a theoretical framework is the conceptual model of how one theorizes or makes logical sense of the relationships among the several factors that have been identified as important to the problem. In depth interview should suffice to develop a theoretical framework but literature survey completes the flows from the documentation of previous research in the problem by integrating logical beliefs with published research,......

...then means that the standard normal table cannot be used since the shape of the distribution of Z-scores is the same as that for the original non-normal distribution. 2. The sense that standard deviation can be a measure for precision is that for example if you were to be doing a research study and you predicted the mean of the samples but the mean that was measured is too far away from the predicted mean, using the standard deviation as a measurement of length, then the theory being tested probably needs to be visited. The lower the standard deviation the more precision your answer will have from the absolute result you want. 3. A) Negatively skewed because the mean is less than the median. B) Positively skewed because the mean is greater than the median. C) No Skew because the mean and the median are the same value. 4. Mean= 150, Median=150, Mode= 150, Standard Deviation=10 5. Her score of 42 at the 95th percentile in the new scale would be 172*.95=163.4 she would then not make it past the minimum required 164 score to be even included in the 1 percentile. Therefore the results of her test would be not valid and therefore she would not make the program. Part B: Qualitative Research: Section 1: 1.

Build the Management Research Hierarchy

...University September 7, 2014 Build the management-research question hierarchy. The management-research question hierarchy is a hierarchy which produces several specific questions from an original question with intent to give management information to make a decision on correcting a dilemma. The hierarchy contains six steps starting with a dilemma and ending with a decision. The first step in the management-research question hierarchy is to determine the management dilemma. The dilemma can be anything from rising costs, declining sales, to defective products. For Penton Media, the management dilemma was a decline in use of their public service reader cards. The next step in the management-research question hierarchy is the management question. A management question is simply the management dilemma stated in question form (Cooper and Schindler, 2014). In the case of Penton Media, the management question is why is the use of their public service reader cards declining and how to promote increased usage of the cards? The use of the Penton Media’s public service card is declining because as the years progress people are obtaining information through faster means than mail such as email, websites, or telephone numbers. The third step in the management-research question hierarchy is to produce research questions. Research questions are specific and help determine the different courses of action management can take to solve the management dilemma. Since Penton Media knows......

...Chapter 6 Elements Of Research Design Instructional Goals 1. To clarify the various components of research design as indicated in Figure 5.1 of the book; 2. To highlight obvious combinations in research design choices; for example, a lab or field experiment is invariably conducted to establish cause and effect relationships; a lab experiment is always done in a contrived setting with maximal researcher interference and in a longitudinal fashion.; 3. To stress the importance of making optimal research design choices aimed at balancing scientific rigor and research costs (and feasibility). Discussion Questions 1. What are the basic research design issues? Describe them in some detail. Basic research design issues are primarily a function of the purpose of the study (whether it is exploratory, descriptive, or hypothesis-testing), and relate to such aspects as the type of study to be done (causal or correlational), the setting in which it will be done (natural or contrived), how much of researcher control will have to be exercised (very little in the case of field studies, to very much in the case of experimental designs), how many times data will have to be collected (one shot versus longitudinal), and the unit of analysis – i.e. the level at which data will be aggregated. For most correlational studies, the field setting with minimal researcher influence will be the choice. Most field studies are generally cross-sectional, though some could be longitudinal.......

...Organizations Chapter 1: Introduction Human resource management is one of the core functions of business managers. Organizational productivity is influenced by the degree of effectiveness with which employees are managed and directed to perform their duties. One major challenge that human resource managers face in this regard is promoting harmony and coexistence in multicultural workplace environments. Since the beginning of the 18th century Industrial Revolution in Europe, business companies have had to deal with a growing number of people from different cultural backgrounds. This demographic transformation of the workplace was a result of advancements in the transport industry. The invention of the steam engine, and later on, the airplane, facilitated fast movement of goods and people across international boundaries. Over time, companies expanded their business activities beyond their local markets, giving rise to multinational corporations. Satair U.S.A is a multinational corporation with branches in several countries around the world. The company specializes in aircraft maintenance and the distribution of aircraft spare parts. As a multinational company, Satair employs people from different cultural backgrounds in its plants around the world. Consequently, the company’s labor force is characterized by a rich cultural diversity. In this regard, the company’s workforce composition and human resource management will provide a relevant case study for......

...BIO 3108 – NATURAL RESOURCES AND POPULATION GROWTH CONSERVATION AND MANAGEMENT What are natural resources? A natural resource is defined as a form of energy and/or matter which is essential for the functioning of organisms, populations and ecosystems. In the case of humans, a natural resource refers to any form of energy or matter essential for the fulfillment of physiological, socio-economic and cultural needs, both at the individual level and that of the community. Life on our planet earth depends upon a large number of things and services provided by the nature, which are known as natural resources. Water, air, soil, minerals, coal, forests, crops and wild life are all the examples of natural resources. The basic ecological variables- energy, space, time and diversity are sometimes combined called natural resources. These natural are maintaining ecological balance among themselves. Man is the only organisms who have disrupted this duplicate balance.

The Future of Chinese Management Research

...Management and Organization Review 5:1 75–89 doi: 10.1111/j.1740-8784.2008.00137.x The Future of Chinese Management Research: Rigour and Relevance Redux Mary Ann Von Glinow1 and Mary B. Teagarden2 1 Florida International University, USA, and 2Thunderbird School of Global Management, USA ABSTRACT We use the parable of the blind men and the elephant to suggest that Barney and Zhang (2009) and Whetten (2009) analogously touch on only a part of the Chinese management research puzzle. Their analyses remind us of many attempts at anchoring the research purpose – etic versus emic approaches, exploration versus exploitation approaches, rigor versus relevance scenarios – touched on by the many commentators in this issue. We suggest researchers first answer the ‘purpose’ questions before embarking on the research design. The research design should fit the purpose of the knowledge, which is either to improve the performance of Chinese organizations (meeting the relevance criterion) or to replicate, extend or refine a theory developed in the US (meeting the rigour criterion). We believe the strength of applied management research allows us to create knowledge that can meet the criteria of both rigour and relevance. We support the use of academic international research teams and dialectic debate as tools to move the field of Chinese management research forward.

Time Management Research Strategy

...Time Management Research Strategy Abstract Time is not an issue. People have the same number of hours in the day, the same number of days in a week, and the same number of days in a year. It is the management of that time that separates success and failure. Think about it; offices, homes, and computers have a multitude of online folders, three ring binders, and file cabinets used to manage mail, e-mail messages, memorandums, and other correspondence received. The concept of time management should be no different. Learning to organize tasks and use time more efficiently through a process, puts everything in its place, makes it easy to find, and makes it easy to manage. Time Management Research Strategy People continually pursue techniques to make better use of the time. Effective time management skills used by students juggling classes and homework, people in the workplace meeting deadlines, and households with multiple individual schedules provide for better work-life balance. Those who have not mastered these skills go through the day stressed and overwhelmed. Discovery of effective time management skills can be accomplished only through research. You must first conduct research to identify common causes, and then discover tools and methods used to address the problem, and ways apply those tools effectively. Time management courses offered through a school or business as well as online are an excellent approach to learning skills. According to Time Management.......
