Power Factor Correction Equipment : advantages and disadvantages
Normally, the power factor of the whole load on a large generating station is in the region of 0•8 to 0•9. However, sometimes it is lower and in such cases it is generally desirable to take special steps to improve the power factor. This can be achieved by a particular equipment, just as this article explains.
Energy efficient lighting : CFL vs LED
Two of the most common such electrical bulbs are the Light Emitting Diode (LED) bulb and Compact Fluorescent Light (CFL) bulb. These new-tech bulbs are designed to replace the incandescent bulb in form and function but with a much improved efficiency of converting electrical energy to light. However the use of any of the two has its own pros and cons.
Faults in Electrical Systems (back to basics)
We all are familiar and encountered at least once the phenomenon of fault occurrence in electrical system. A power system failure across the town that happened due to a storm breakout or an internal equipment fault that disrupted your local power supply these are all essentially the cases of faults in electrical systems. Through this article we tried to examine this phenomenon in little more detail.
Generator Ratings (back to basics)
When an Electrical Engineer is in field dealing with generators, then it’s very important for him to know the rating of under process generator otherwise he may cause a great loss. This article goes back to basics.
