megaphone-darkblueMile is a young member of the community and he often sends articles about several topics. But his particularity is that he shares the experiment he had in school as a young electrical engineer student in Romania.

You too can share your experiment and be published in the blog, just send a mail to the team!


The general purpose of this article is to compare several ways of compensation of reactive power in middle voltage power lines in order to determine the optimal technical and economical solution. In this article I am going to examine middle voltage power line which is fed from 110/20 kV/kV transformer station. Load flow analyses will be made for different cases and loads for the transformer station. According the results from the analyses the optimal technical solution will be determined.

Hi, this is Steven Mill. It’s been a long time so I’m coming back with a back to basics article. Hope you’ll enjoy.

The electricity smart meter is a device that measures electricity in the same way as the ordinary electricity meter but with the difference that it measures and stores much more data and parameters than the ordinary electricity meter.

Below you can see how one electricity smart meter for middle voltage looks like.
