Electrical distribution

The blog category that contains the most articles is actually "Electrical distribution". With 134 articles, it's also the category which is the most commented.

Thus, it's quite difficult to select only 3 articles, so we decided to pick the latest ones so that you can read them if you missed their publication!

3 of the latest topics in this category are:

1. Too much moisture in the transformer - how to measure and drying out?

2. Low Voltage Circuit Breakers - How to mount them?

3. New generator creates electricity directly from heat

If you want to publish an article in the "Electrical distribution" category, you can send us a mail.

You're even allowed to post directly on the forum and write about whatever you want (debate, tutorial, product review, observations, your own experience, etc.)!

    Welcome to our newcomers: EVANS, Rana Sajid, TL Myint, svh and divyakalsank!

    I am very upset!!

    My name is Paolo, I am a Brazilian panel builder. I assemble low voltage power distribution panels using enclosure systems from International manufacturers also known as "functional" panels. and I'm tired of it! I can only state that the expectations are not met.

    International manufacturers (ABB, Schneider, WEG.) promote "functional" or "modular" systems (for beginners sold in the form of kit, just like Ikea furniture!).

    The other solution is to use standard metal-sheet enclosures that many panel builders manufacture themselves.

    I first thought that the kit system allowed me to save time with the assembling. However, there are a lot of drawbacks that make me question the relevance of this kind of "kit" offer.

    Wow! Explosive rant we got here! The other day, a Brazilian panel builder sent us this message. Check it entirely on the blog and tell him if you agree or not in the comments section.

    The importance of equipment specifications for an Engineer

    As with any other business or profession, a clear write-up of requirements is important for purchase and procurement. This is especially important for electrical equipment due to the high significance of tolerances, ratings and size.

    Whether for new projects or replacements, a specification document is crucial. The following article sent by Marvin M. highlights the purpose, features and format of an electrical equipment specification document.

    Hmm, very interesting. Can you all relate?

    Common electrically conducting materials used in electrical cables

    The primary purpose of cables is to provide a conduit for power transmission from the source to the end user.

    Over the years, engineers and scientists have worked tirelessly to get the best materials for functionality and project feasibility.

    The following article highlights the common conducting materials used for electrical cables. What do you think of it? Leave your impressions!
