Electrical Engineering Debates

Electrical engineer are individuals with their own experiences, opinions and beliefs. That is the reason why we chose to focus on Electrical Engineering debates for this newsletter.

Debates are very important. They encourage exchange between professional or students and sometimes we can even learn from them or become more open-minded.

Check 3 memorable debates ever published in the blog below (involving visitors and members of the EEC community):

1. DC: danger alert?

2. Are Power Factor Correction Units Necessary For Residential Consumers?

3. Ancient Electrical Myths and Facts - should we believe in it?

If you would like to publish an article in the blog just tell us by mail. You can even post directly on the forum!

You can write about whatever you want (debate, tutorial, product review, your observations, your opinion as an engineer or student, etc.).

Thanks in advance for your active contribution to our community,

This month let us introduce you one of our community members: Waqas

  • A student in the MSc Electrical Engineering (smart grids) program from Finland.
  • From Pakistan and Finland for his studies.
  • IoT, Industrial Automation, Smart Metering, RTUsare the subjects which interest him the most.
  • Thinks that there's a lack of push for awareness in the Electrical Engineering Community. Thinks that people need to get acquainted to the idea of digitization of the grid, and how automation can lead to greater efficiency, reliability and safety especially in his country.
  • Visits the Electrical Engineering blog and forum often to keep hiself updated about the latest news.

    Transformer differential protection

    Transformer differential protection is a protection scheme based on current comparison, it is usually employed to protect two-sided components such as the transformer windings from internal short-circuit currents.

    Basically, it's based on the idea of comparing the currents into the winding of a transformer with the currents out of the winding.

    Do you have more to share about transformer differential protection?

    How can you select the proper busbar?

    Busbar is an electrical conductor carrying current at a specific voltage level used to distribute the electricity over many different circuits.

    It's used in panel boards to connect the incoming feeders to the outgoing feeders in distribution systems. Also it connects high voltage and low voltage equipment.

    How do YOU select the proper busbar?

    Electrical Solar Installation: safety measurements

    Like in all other electrical equipment installation we need to be careful as well in the Installation of Solar power plant. Safety First!

    It is really very important to take all possible safety measurement during installation of solar power plant because in solar installation system mostly we are directly exposed to 1000V dc, which is really very dangerous because an electric shock of 1000V can take your life within the seconds.

    Do you agree with the safety measurements mentionned in this article?
