Electrical Safety

Last time, we focused on the articles published on the category "Panel building". Now let's focus on "Electrical Safety".

From 2013 to 2014, the most read articles from this category are:

1. To PVC or not to PVC? That is the question

2. Defending against electromagnetic attacks

3. Inspection and Testing of Wiring Installations

If you would like to publish an article on the blog, you can tell us by mail. You can write about whatever you want (debate, tutorial, product review, observations, your status as an engineer or student, etc.).

 This month let us introduce you one of our forum members: Ally Kanyondo

• An electrical engineer
• From Tanzania
• Electrical installations design, switchgear & protections are the subjects which interest him the most
• Visits the forum often because he believes the forum permits him to gain a lot of technical knowledge

Residual Current Circuit Breaker (RCCB)
 A Residual Current Circuit Breakers is another different class of Circuit Breakers. A Residual Current Circuit Breaker (RCCB) is essentially a current sensing device used to protect a low voltage circuit in case of a fault. It contains a switch device that switches off whenever a fault occurs in the connected circuit. What's the purpose of RCCB? How does it Protect? What are the different types? Find the answer in this article.

Generating Electricity Using Triboelectric Generators
 You may have noticed when you rub a comb in your hair, an electric charge is produced. This is triboelectric effect. When two different kind of plastic materials come in contact, they produce electric charge. This charge is captured and used to generate electricity. The researchers are now trying to use this technique to create a self-powered active pressure sensor that can be used with organic electronic systems. Read the whole story in this article.

What is Transfer Function?
 Transfer function is function of complex variables. The transfer function can be obtained by simple algebraic jugglery of differential equations that illustrates the system. In Analyzing and designing of any system, the most important factor is the mathematical modeling of that system.
