megaphone-redAs protection is the first concern in power systems design, companies spare no effort to upgrade protection devices to better, safer, smarter and more efficient devices.

This is obvious at a glance in the development of switchgear. Probably you know what switchgear is, but you don’t know the reason why switchgear got this name. Nor what are the most encountered problems in MV switchgear.

That’s what our fellow electrical engineer Yasser is going to explain today in this article he gently sent us! Leave your impressions below.

January 9th, 2017 | Make a comment | Posted in Panel Building

Hi everybody, here’s an article we received from a professional who’ve been designing electrical systems for industrial, commercial, and residential (LV and MV) since 5 years. He wanted to share 4 tips with us so we gladly published his material.

Enjoy and do not hesitate to send us your articles in our boxmail!

Designing electrical system particularly for industrial plant can be difficult to start and the process often require a complex understanding not only about engineering knowledge but also some of the soft skills.

Here I will explain the general principle for designing industrial electrical power system as a guidance to get the job done.

1) Find all client’s wants, needs, and desires

This is the most important principle not only for a designer but also everyone who work in service industry. Remember, the client is your focus.

megaphone-blueOur community still can count on A.N for year 2017! Here’s an article this electrical installations expert sent us lately inwhich he will tell you what’s the function and differences of switchboard and switchgear.

Enjoy!

Introduction

The switchboard and switchgear are two important systems that control how power is delivered to electrical circuits. The two terms are sometimes used interchangeably. However, it is important to note that they perform different functions and usually designed to work together in series so as to provide the maximum coordination and protection.

electrical-engineer-testimonyIsmail is a fellow electrical engineer from our community who got 5 years experience in designing electrical system for industrial, commercial, and residential.
Today he nicely accepted to tell us about his experience in industry, precisely the problems he faced and what he learned. Enjoy!

If you want to send us your stories too, just reach us by mail.

“It is always exciting for me to accept a job in designing electrical power system for industry. The problem, or I have to say the one which make me excited, is every company quite often has its own rule or even own standard! It becomes even worse if a company has a several factory and each factory adopt different standard (maybe because the factory has been built by different contractor).”
