  • The Basics of Battery Technology
    Battery technology has come a long way over the centuries. Copper and lime or lemon juice has given way to exotic metals such as nickel and metal hydride. If you're curious about how batteries are made, what makes them work, or how to extend their lives, this is the right guide for you.
  • Using Transformers in Electrical Engineering
    Transformers are among the most common of electrical devices found in power plants, substations, electrical, and electronic equipment. Just about every electrical device makes use of transformers in one way or another. This guide will help you understand how they work and are used.
  • Types of Batteries and Their Applications
    A battery is a source of electrical energy, which is provided by one or more electrochemical cells of the battery after conversion of stored chemical energy. In today’s life, batteries play an important part as many household and industrial appliances use batteries as their power source.
  • Comparison of Lithium Ion to Lithium Iron Battery
    What are the major differences between Lithium Ion and Lithium Iron batteries? Is the only difference the letter "R" in "iron" versus "ion"? Hardly. This article will describe the numerous differences between those two rechargeable batteries.
  • What is Power Correction Factor for Transformers
    Correction or improvement of the power factor of electrical equipment like transformers is done to reduce the required electric power and thereby save electricity. Here, we discuss how the power factor correction is done and also the calculation steps to process the method.
