Electrical Installation Guide 2015
The international standards set by the IEC are complex and keep evolving; as a result, we all struggle to stay informed. Fortunately, experts in the field from Schneider Electric got together in order to update the Electrical Installation Guide (EIG), a free and complete guide about electrical installations and their standards. This reference work helps you understanding and respecting the IEC standards to be applied in 2015.
Gas insulated VS Air insulated substations
Due to the large power demand brought about by a growing population and a robust industrial sector, there is a need for the power supply company to embrace efficient methods. One of the key areas is substation insulation. There are two primary substation insulation systems in the world, Gas insulated, and Air insulated substations. This article highlights the primary differences between the two.
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? There are many known and unknown reasons. The ones in this article occupies top 10 position.
Electrical Fuses : Their Types & Applications
The basic purpose of the fuse is to protect and is composed of an alloy which has a low melting point. A strip of this fuse is placed in series with the circuit. What is the working principle of it, and what types of fuses does exist? The answer is in this very good article!
Armature reaction in DC Generator
Armature reaction is one of the reasons that causes generated emf in DC Generator to decrease. And this effect is as much important to note as the armature losses and other constant loses like windage and iron losses, because all of them consequently gives us a decreased emf. But compensating winding and commutating poles appreciably decrease this effect and greater part of overall losses in DC Generator is compensated. This article is focused on one particular aspect of DC Generator.
