O colunista do Portal Universo Lambda, o português Prof. Manuel Bolotinha, lança hoje, 13/01, o livro Basics of HV, MV and LV Installations que representa uma ferramenta útil para engenheiros e técnicos de eletricidade que, diariamente, se defrontam com os problemas do projeto, construção, ensaios e comissionamento, fiscalização, segurança e manutenção de instalações elétricas de alta, média e baixa tensão, onde são abordados alguns conceitos básicos da eletrotecnia, as fórmulas de cálculo mais comumente utilizadas e as características principais dos equipamentos e sistemas que constituem aquelas instalações.

O lançamento com noite de autógrafos acontecerá na Sede da Ordem dos Engenheiros – Sala Manuel Rocha, em Lisboa – Portugal, a partir das 18h. A obra e o autor serão apresentados pelo Eng. Amilcar Barata Salgueiro.
