Learn how to calculate the power consumption of your various appliances and equipments and also find out how power rates are set by your supply company.
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.
Water can be stored in an elevated storage tank to be used later on. It requires a pump to store the water at that height and it flows out instantly when needed. So what do you do when you need to store electric charge, just find out!
There are a lot of different types of fuses found in electrical equipment today. But do you really know how they work?
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.
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!
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.
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!
