Electricity is the life blood of the modern society making electrical engineers crucial to our every day life. You can see the work of an electrical engineer in many commercial buildings, projects and factories. They are employed wiring buildings, building and repairing machines and making sure every area of our life gets the power it needs from electricity. Learn about the theories, and models of electricity that make this possible, as well as pratical application.
Electrical engineering students with color vision deficiency may go through some troubles, like an inability to interpret color code on resistors or a failure to differentiate circuit trails for drafting multilevel electrical circuit layouts. Can electrical engineers be color blind?
The article defines what electrical technology is and the difference between electrical and electronic technology. The article also describes the range of professionals that work as a team to maintain and develop the technology.
What is a Klystron tube, and how does it work? Invented in 1937, Klystrons are a special type of amplifier vacuum tube. They have been used in RADAR, medicine, satellite technology, and high-power communications. This article covers the history, uses, and future of Klystron tubes.
Motorists make use of radar detectors in their vehicles to reduce the speed of the vehicle in case a police radar unit is detected before being ticketed for speeding. Normally, police radars and guns have integrated radar detector detectors to trap radar detectors.
Ultracapacitors are more or less similar to capacitors; they store energy in an electric field between two conductors that are placed close to each other. An electric charge builds up on each plate when a voltage is applied. Here’s an insight to this advancement in nanotechnology, ultracapacitors.
There are some plastics with polar molecules like polyamides, acetates and PVC, which can be heated using high frequency electromagnetic waves. RF welding and sealing uses this property of plastics to soften them for fusing. Let’s see how RF welding and sealing work.
If you are planning to carry out a landscaping or construction project involving digging up the yard, then the first thing you have to do is to locate the underground power lines, gas lines or other cables in order to avoid damage to the lines. So, here’s how you can locate underground power lines.
A thermographic survey is a useful tool to protect your expensive equipment, plants, and buildings. Here some important points regarding hiring a thermographic imaging scan and camera report are described.
To obtain satisfactory parallel operation between generators, certain requirements concerning prime mover speed governing and automatic voltage regulation must be met. It is also necessary for the operation personnel to have a clear understanding of the terms “real power" and “reactive power."
An electrical circuit diagram is a simplified schematic representation of an electric circuit. It uses standard symbols for the components in the circuit and does not show the physical arrangements of the components. In this article we discuss 10 simple electrical circuits.
A soft starter is a electronic starter for a synchronous motor that supplies gradually increasing voltage to the motor during start up to avoid high starting current taken by the motor.Let’s find out how the soft starter works.
A magnetic field can be formed by passing electric current through a wire, and electromagnets work on this basic principal. Electromagnets are used for creating plenty of appliances ranging from motors, speakers, heads for tape drives, and hard disks; here’s a brief insight to electromagnets.
An electromagnet is a temporary magnet that works on the principle of the magnetic effect of electricity. Some of the common types of electromagnet such as the simple electromagnet, solenoid, and toroid are discussed in this article.
