Electrical Installation Guide 2015

Designer, Consultant, Contractor, Panel builder, Facility manager, Student, teacher, Standardisation or certification experts… we all have to know and comply to electrical installation standards and regulations, in order to ensure the safety (and more and more the energy efficiency) of our customers’ electrical installations.

These international standards, set by the IEC, are complex and keep evolving; as a result, we struggled to stay informed.

As an example, are you aware that the IEC 60364 “Low-voltage electrical installations” part 4-42 “Protection for safety – Protection against thermal effects” has been updated in 2014, and that in particular it now includes recommendations for arc fault protection?

New article in our boxmail about SCADA systems. Here’s what you have to know about them…

Introduction

What is SCADA?

SCADA?

SCADA (Supervisory control and data acquisition) is a system that is being used in different manufacturing processes. In energetics, SCADA systems are used in substations, hydropower plants, thermal power plants, photovoltaic power plants, wind power plants etc. Thus the dispatchers can monitor the different parameters in real time (load, voltage, if a failure become etc.). They also can make different switching operations from a distance.

Hi, this is Steven Mill. As you know, I love reporting electrical improvements and other news linked to the subject. Did you know graphene can replace transparent electrical conductors?

Why use transparent electrical conductors in displays in the first place?

Most of the flat screen TV’s, laptops, desktops, mobile phones and other electrical or electronic devices that need bright screens, rely on transparent electrical conductors for effective display. The reason for using transparent conductors for this purpose is, they do not obstruct the back-end illumination that lights up the front of the screen, resulting in a brighter and sharper display.

Introduction

3 Strategies to Reduce Peak Demand at Industrial Sites

The cost of investing in renewable energy sources is quite high. In addition, the costs of the main raw materials for electricity generation such as coal and oil are always rising. This means that the cost of electricity continues to increase despite the best of efforts.

Therefore, despite the long-term promises by the governments to reduce the cost of power, it is important that industries integrate short terms strategies to reduce peak power demand.
