Electrical distribution

This month, we chose to focus on the category "Electrical distribution "? Did you know that it is the category where you can find the highest number of articles? If not, enjoy our selection!

Here are the newest articles you can read in this category:

1. Electrical Generator Protection

2. Low voltage circuit breakers: what differences?

3. Electric load forecasting: advantages and challenges

If you would like to publish an article in the "Energy Efficiency - solar" category, you can tell us by mail. You can even post directly on the forum!

You can write about whatever you want (debate, tutorial, product review, your observations, your opinion as an engineer or student, etc.).

Thanks in advance for your active contribution to our community,

The moderator team.

This month let us introduce you one of our community members: Jesús

  • An employee of a consulting engineering company.
  • From Caracas, Venezuela.
  • Electrical engineering associated to electrical protections and studies (device coordination, selecting equipment, short circuit, stability) are the subjects that particularly interest him.
  • Thinks that Electrical Engineering Communities are a nice tool when one needs to consult something. To his opinion, it's also really great to learn about experiences from other engineers.
  • Believes that the main issue that online community has, is that there are many lazy people that only want to solve their doubts/problems; or only want to ask how to do something without sharing details of the experience and giving feedback.

    To his opinion, a good community should have rules in order to define how to share information, kind of, how to ask; and also be composed by people committed to the objective of the community, which is to exchange experience and knowledge.

    How non-contact AC Voltage Testers Work?

    A non-contact voltage test provides an easy and safe way of ensuring that electrical conductors do not have power without having to touch them.

    The tester works by detecting the electric fields associated with AC voltages. These fields are usually present near the live conductors, hence the reason why there is no requirement for direct contact with the conductors.

    Have you ever used a tester? How was it? Share your experience with us!

    Should I replace my electrical system?

    What are the most common problems encountered in electrical installations and how to solve them in order to get a better installation? That's what this article is about. It sets a list 6 of the most frequent problems but you still can add some.

    Also, it would be interesting to know that other solutions can be offered to some of these. To do so, you still can tell what you know in the comment section.

    What do you think about this review? Do you know other way to fix those common problems? What other problems do you know?

    Power generation control

    On an aircraft we have two types of electrical current, DC and AC.

    Everything works prefect, we have enough power, but how can it be controlled?

    ...The key is control and regulation.

    Do you have any question or remark about this article?
