    Top 10 reasons of equipment failure and overvoltage

    Most of the complaints that get registered about the damage of electrical equipment state that, "the equipment failed after power interruption." But what might have caused these power interruptions? Lightening? Voltage swells? Or switching transients?

    Sometimes the reasons behind power interruptions are quite obvious and sometimes, they are not. There are many known and unknown reasons that lead to equipment failure following power interruptions. Go read the top 10 reasons listed in this article.

    You all really liked the top 10 articles series we've been sharing lately. So we're providing you more! What did you think about this top 10?

    Current and Voltage sensors

    Majority of faults, incidents, and accidents associated with electrical equipment and systems are as a result of undervoltage and overvoltage.

    It is important to know the exact amount of current and voltage is a particular system and application as it enables the engineer or technician to make and implement safety-critical decisions.

    What's your impressions on this article about current and voltage sensors in terms of features, applications, and benefits?

    4 qualities every power protection system should possess

    The main objective of any power protection system is to isolate a part of the system, or the equipment, that generates fault currents from the remaining electrical system to protect other equipment for getting damaged or from failing permanently.

    This allows the rest of the electrical system to function normally while the faulty parts are being repaired or replaced.
