Came across the following site of Siemens technical notes for the first time the other day:

Tech Topics/Application Notes - Siemens

There are a lot of interesting two page type notes on various medium voltage topics – switchgear, circuit breakers, bus systems etc.  It is on the Siemens US site, so many of he note are IEEE/ANSI based. Each topic discusses the standards, application and gives some advice on how to do thing.

I’ve also added a link on the Steven’s Technical Links page, under MV switchgear.
