This 3-hour course is the third volume of a three volume series about the mechanical design of electric distribution power systems. This volume addresses guying and pole loads and provides worked examples of guy loads.

The course is divided into five chapters. It begins with an overview of guying and the components used in guying. Pole loading is discussed as well as the expected loads that need to be controlled through proper guying. A detailed guying example is provided and the method for determining the proper pole class is explained.
