As you already know, we love to publish testimonies or career stories from fellow electrical engineers. Today, here’s Bernardo’s story. He tells us about his experience from college to work as an Electrical engineer which is not always easy. Enjoy and comment!

“Starting your professional life in a working site as an Electrical Engineer is mentally challenging, because you work on an environment that you are not familiar with, and you are surrounded by veterans of many areas thinking that you’re only a fresh kid straight out of college.

And they are right!

Check one of our members’s contribution with this article which tells you how to work around LV systems as an electrical engineer. Enjoy and if you want to, you can leave more remarks.

Every single day, engineers and technicians work on low voltage systems supplying resident and commercial buildings. In most of the cases, the job successfully goes without hitches. Occasionally though, something goes wrong, either through an overlooked hazard, or a plain accident that results to electrocution and injury.

The article highlights how to identify low voltage conductors, why they are dangerous, and how to de-energize the systems for a safe working environment.


Inspection of voltage drop in conductors

Hi everybody, it’s Steven Mill. I hope you all enjoyed your holidays (if you had some). I’m back to tell you about a pretty technical subject: the inspection of voltage drop in conductors. Don’t hesitate to tell me what you think!

Voltage drop

Conductor allows the flow of electrical energy to move in one and other directions. The pressure or electrical force that helps the current to flow in a conductor is voltage. Sometimes the pressure of voltage fails to provide the desired flow of current due to impedance. This situation causes voltage drop.

It is not affected by the equal number of electrons before or after entering the conductors. The fluctuation in the speed too, does not hurt it. It is only affected by the pressure or release of energy in the conductors. Voltage drop usually lasts for few seconds.
