Basic Construction of underground cables

This article is the next and last part of Khuram’s article on underground MV/LV distribution systems. Enjoy and comment BELOW if you have any questions.

Underground electrical distribution is not only tidier but also less prone to environmental hazards as compared to the overhead distribution. Installation and maintenance cost, operational pros and cons, and a brief overview of cable structure are discussed in the previous part. Distribution transformers, switchgear and MV/LV cables are the main components of underground distribution system.

Structure and types of underground cables for a distribution system are discussed in this article.

Electricity can be transported to homes and smaller substations in electrical distribution networks via overhead distribution lines. But overhead distribution lines are not the only way of transporting energy.

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:
