There are a lot of different types of fuses found in electrical equipment today. But do you really know how they work?
What is electrical engineering? This broad field covers control systems, telecommunications and signal processing, and can include elements of computer science and electronic engineering. Though the topic is vast, Bright Hub’s Electrical Engineering Channel is here to help with articles on everything from basic electrical wiring tips, and safety rules to the latest telecommunication trends.
Electrical Engineers use electricity to generate, transmit, process, store and convert energy and information. As you can imagine, this field is growing and expanding every day to keep up with the rate we consume energy. New materials, tools and systems are constantly being designed. New careers in electrical engineering are emerging every day. Our writers are professionals in the field and have the information you need from info on basic electrical principles such as Thevenin’s network theorem or electronic engineering facts.

We live in a world of networks and you surely must be using one right now (since you are reading this article on the Internet – one of the largest networks), but networks are not only about computers alone. Electric circuits also have networks and network theorems which govern their behaviour.
We studied about the Superposition theorem and Kirchhoff’s laws in previous articles. Another important network theorem is the Thevenin’s theorem which is being described in this article, and is used to convert linear circuits containing multiple resistances and sources of emf into a simple circuit
We usually associate electricity with the flow of current which is normally true but there is a different phenomenon when electricity is at rest. Learn a few basics about electrostatic charge here!
Permittivity or dielectric constant of a material is an important property of materials from the electrical engineering perspective. Find out what is exactly meant by this and how is it useful in practical applications.
Resistance may be a necessary evil but even then it has not been given a free reign by nature. Resistance is still is subject to the laws of mathematics. Find out more about it here!
Behind every successful man is a woman (and vice versa), and it obviously means that there is lot of understanding between the duo. But do you know that not only understanding it but differences can also be the force behind some phenomenon.
