In electrical distribution practices, cables form a considerable part of the project at different aspects such as installation time and cost. It’s common to find cables prices exceeds more than 50% of the project budget.

Medium voltage DC configuration and control

The distribution is the final stage of carrying electricity from the transmission system to consumers. The distribution substations are connected with transmission lines and the voltage reduced to medium voltage through the transmission systems as shown in Fig1.

Through this article, one of the members of the Electrical Engineering Community blog Yasser wants to focus on DC medium voltage stage which ranging between 2KV and 35KV.

Hello eveybody, it’s Yasser and I’m back with a guest post. I have questions for you:

Have you ever been angry for losing some data while working on your PC and a power outage occurs? Have you ever imagined what will happen if some main servers of the internet had power outage?

New article by Yasser, one of our members who kindly sent us this article. Enjoy!

Throughout the last 4 decades, switchgears development was just obvious at a glance. This electrical device which we use when we want to connect, disconnect, regulate or control the flow of electricity in a power system, is a vital part of any medium voltage power stations.

That’s why studying the faults and failures reported in switchgears is very important and finding solutions is a main concern for all the companies that produce and maintain switchgears to insure reliability and stability of the power systems.
