electrical engineeringHi, it’s Steven Mill! For my first article for 2016, I chose to deal with common pitfalls in distribution engineering and design and prevention. I think many of us can relate, so here’s my rendition…

Thanks in advance for reading. Don’t forget you can send articles too by sending a mail to the moderator team.

In most distribution systems, the service-level equipment is designed to serve between one and ten customers. This leads to a high chance of non-coincident loads characterized by numerous square peaks, low loads, and lower losses.

Other common pitfalls that plague engineers are the generalization of service level layout design, economic hurdles, and environmental restrictions.

Importance of voltage criteria for consumer distribution system

Yesterday Martin M. sent us this article and we thought it was quite interesting, so we’re sharing it with you.

Remember you too can send us your articles, just send us a mail.

A distribution system is deemed a failure if it does not meet the electrical demands of the consumers, as well as ensure safety while at it. Do note that the consumer end of the service is composed of thousands of small equipment and tools. While engineering at this level is virtually impossible, the power distributor can set a range of criteria that ensures both adequate power provision and safety.
Customer Voltage Requirements (more…)

The Electrical Engineering Community counts numerous members and we are lucky because they send us articles on a weekly basis. Today, let’s meet one of them who is willing to give you 5 practical tips to install a correct measuring system…

“Most electrical engineers face a number of problems while selecting a good measuring system. The reason being, they need to consider various types of measuring systems, current transformers, voltage transformers, wiring and grounding of the systems, etc., to finalize the most appropriate measuring system for electrical equipment.

I, being an electrical engineer myself (specializing in instrumentation), and having 15 years of experience in the similar field, have put together some practical tips that might help other electrical engineers in understanding “How to install a good measuring system?”. Following are some of them:


Development of Automated distribution system

Development of Automated distribution system 1

The distribution system is vastly spread in the present age with the primary circuit starting from a sub-station and ending at the customer’s home. At this moment it is known to be the secondary service.

The voltage being received by the customer is of low voltage than that starting from the sub-station as it is divided to many customers along the way.

The voltage being utilized falls within the range of 2300- 35000 volts with huge dependence on the distance it has to cover, the amount of load and the utility standard practice. This makes the voltage distribution most suitable to less far areas.

The voltage transmission is usually carried out at high voltage. The high voltage first enters a transformer which is placed in a sub-station; the voltage gets reduced and after that distributed to various locations. Overhead pole lines or underground networking both ways can be utilized for the placement of conductors to be used during distribution.


Busbar and distribution systems in electrical switchboards : make or buy?

3-montage-cuivre-packshotFor more than 30 years, electrical equipment manufacturers have developed some very attractive busbar and distribution systems (standard busbar profiles & sizes, busbar supports, comb busbar, distribution systems & accessories) to distribute power inside these electrical equipments in an easy and safe way, especially when they are type-tested.
As far as I see it a lot of panel builder use partially or totally these busbar systems
