Sign Convention in Electrical Circuits

Sign convention is the generalized way to solve and analyze the electrical circuits. It defines the positive or negative sign to be taken for various electrical parameters viz. current, voltage, power etc. Sign convention brings uniformity in the value of electrical parameters so that anyone can understand the analysis of circuits. Our Universe is diverse … Read more Sign Convention in Electrical Circuits

Why Switchyard Surface Covered with Gravels?

If you get a chance to visit any substation or Switchyard, you will notice that the surface of the Switchyard is fully covered with small size Gravels. The use of gravels on the surface has the following things to do: Although Substation / Switchyard grounding is very low in the range of 0.5 to 5 … Read more Why Switchyard Surface Covered with Gravels?

Step Potential and Touch Potential – Must Read

Step potential is the voltage between the feet i.e. one step of a person standing near an energized grounded object. Touch potential is the touch voltage between the energized object and the feet of a person in contact with the object. It is equal to the difference in voltage between the object and a point … Read more Step Potential and Touch Potential – Must Read

Why Sinusoidal Voltage and Current used, why not Square or Other?

In Electrical Engineering, every time our aim is to get the perfect Sinusoidal voltage or current without having any harmonics. But the question arises why do we select Sinusoidal waveform why not other waveform for voltage and current? The following reasons favor the use of sinusoidal wave: For Sinusoidal wave, hysteresis and eddy current losses … Read more Why Sinusoidal Voltage and Current used, why not Square or Other?

Expectations of Industries from an Engineer

In today’s scenario, Industries expects something ahead of CGPA in this competitive world from an Engineer. 20-33% out of the 1.5 million engineering graduates passing out every year run the risk of not getting a job at all, points out EconomicTimes. This is because they lack some of the skills which are expected from the industries, … Read more Expectations of Industries from an Engineer
