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).”

Hi, it’s Steven Mill. I’ve been publishing articles for the EEC for months now, and today I wanted to deal with the importance of documentation as an electrical engineer.

I’m sure you can relate, so give me your impressions!

How to install a good measuring system? (tips from an expert)

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:

Last time we shared an article about the top 10 ways to increase energy efficiency and performance of pumping systems.

Now here’s another interseting top 10 of the most prominent grounding systems for industrial sectors…

…But before that, let us first understand what grounding/earth is.


Electrical Earthing / Grounding

Hi everyone, a member of the community named Manish sent us an article about Electrical Earthing/Grounding. Remember you can send us articles by sending a mail to the team.


Electrical earthing / grounding is one of the most important aspects of any electrical installation. Earthing or Grounding is a technique which is as old as the use of electrical power on a commercial scale. The practice came in to existence in the early days of electricity when the systems in use were all ungrounded and that led to frequent hazardous incidents caused due to electric shocks.

The term Earthing or Grounding simply means connecting the electrical system / equipment to the ground by means of a suitable conductor. Such a ground connection provides a common return path for safe discharge of electricity to the ground.

A properly grounded electrical system serves mainly two purposes:

a) It prevents from the risk of electrical shocks to any human being coming in contact with the system.

b) It protects the connected equipment from any possible damage occurring due to leakage currents or lightening or voltage surges, by providing a safe passage to these currents to ground.

Earthing of an electrical system is achieved by inserting an electrode (plate type / rod type) in to the solid mass of earth and then connecting this electrode to the earth wire coming from the electrical equipment.
