Howdy! This week we received a testimony in our mailbox. It was signed “G.” and it is about this mysterious sender’s career as an american electrical transformer specialist. Hmm, interesting!

Check what he has to say below…

“As an electrical transformer specialist for a major gas company in the U.S, I have a critical role to play.
But before I move on to the job details, I will give you a little brief of my educational skills, so that you can get an idea as to what background is necessary to better perform in the role of an electrical transformer specialist.

Educational Background

Electrical Transformer Specialist1

Initially, I studied AS in Electromechanical Engineering from Bristol Community College and then went on to complete my BS in Electrical Engineering Technology from Roger Williams University.

I then later completed Masters in Management from Lesley College.

We know that you appreciate when we publish “Top 10″ like articles, that’s why we post this Top 8 of the advantages of Automated Power Distribution. Enjoy!


Distribution automation is the kind of solution that most electric utilities are looking for, in order to face the following 3 main economic challenges:

  • Increasing cost of electricity generation
  • Increasing cost of maintenance
  • Poor customer service

Most electric utilities want to save costs and at the same time want to provide better services to their customers. This can only be achieved by updating their electric utilities to automated power distribution.

This will not only help them face the above mentioned economic challenges but will also help them gain a few more advantages.

Following are the eight top most advantages of using automated power distribution:

As we all have learnt earlier, circuit breakers are generally used to safeguard electrical equipment from voltage spikes.

In this article, one of the member of the community Eric S. will discuss about the different methods that are used to secure low voltage circuit breakers in a typical setting.

You can also send us articles in our boxmail, we will publish it with great pleasure.


There are four standard ways of securing low voltage circuit breakers. They are:

  • Securing with the help of bolts
  • Securing by bolting circuit breakers to bus bar
  • Securing by stab locking breakers to bus or any other receptacle connection
  • Securing by mounting the breakers on din rail

Martin M.’s articles are always very nice and interesting. Today we chose to publich this one, in which he draws a comparison between GIS (Gas insulated substations) and AIS (Air insulated substations).

If you also have great articles like his, feel free to send us a mail. You can write about whatever you want in the electrical field!


The last few years have seen tremendous improvement in power generation and distribution. For the power supplier, the most important part is the transmission and distribution control.

Due to the large power demand brought about by a growing population and a robust industrial sector, there is a need for the power supply company to embrace efficient methods. One of the key areas is substation insulation.

There are two primary substation insulation systems in the world, Gas insulated, and Air insulated substations. The following highlights the primary differences between the two.

Eric S., one of our dear members sent us this article last week. Thank you, it’s much appreciated and we’re sure that you all will love this too. Ready to discover the different way of mounting LV Circuit Breakers?

Low Voltage Power Circuit Breakers

Hi everybody, this is Eric. I think this community is one of the most interesting ever and I wanted to contribute.

Before we go on to discuss about different methods of mounting low voltage circuit breakers, let me give you a brief introduction about low voltage circuit breakers.

Low Voltage Power Circuit Breakers 1

Low voltage power circuit breakers, are essentially the prime electrical devices used in low voltage power distribution systems to protect electrical circuits, and subsequently all electrical equipments, from all types of fault currents, short-circuit and overloads.

Though fuses are also capable of performing the same functions, they have to be replaced each time they detect a fault current or short-circuit, because they get blown off. Unlike fuses, low voltage circuit breakers can be reset to their normal condition, either automatically or manually, after they get tripped due to fault currents, short-circuit and overloads.

Now that we know the importance of low voltage power circuit breakers in protecting valuable electrical equipment, we will now focus on the different methods of mounting them on to the electrical circuits.
