Power Transmission and Distribution

Our modern day world increasingly relies on electricity to power us and make our lives possible. It is Electrical Engineers who build the generators and systems that provide electricity to cities and towns all over the world. Learn more about the systems that create power, from power plants to alternative sources.
Electrical power is not normally generated at the point of consumption but could be hundreds of miles away from the place of utilization. When designing power generators, the distribution and transmission of power is a vital part of the project. Learn how engineers get the power from generation to your home using power lines, transmission signals and a number of other methods.

What is The Purpose of a VFD?

A resistive load can be simply controlled by varying the applied voltage. But controlling inductive loads like an AC motor definitely isn’t that simple and can be done only through VFDs. Here we comprehensively discuss the purpose of a VFD and how a VFD works.

How Does a Substation Work?

How does a substation work? Substations are used for stepping up voltage for transmission, stepping it down for distribution, and for switching purposes. In this article we discuss the various functions of a substation and its working principles. We also discuss the safety devices used.

How to Generate Electricity

How to generate electricity? How is electricity created? This article explains the different methods of producing electricity- from the economically feasible methods using fossil fuels to the other unconventional energy sources like wave energy, wind turbine, and geothermal, which are greener.
