Introduction to RTV polymeric coatings

Hydrophobic insulators are quite a requirement in the areas along coastal belts. Increased salt concentrations in the atmosphere damage the insulators in many ways. Elevated humidity also escalates this problem and a hydro-resistant surface coating is always an economical solution to this problem.

Transient process during electric arc furnace capacitor batteries switching

November 13th, 2018 | Make a comment | Posted in Electrical distribution

In this article, your fellow electrical engineer Mile is observing the transient process, during the switch of electric arc furnace capacitor batteries.

In most of the cases, the batteries have some inductive character, besides capacitive, and because of that fact they act as higher harmonics filter.

But in today’s article the case is different. Read Mile’s nice explanations below and don’t forget to comment afterwards…
