How to Calculate Power Consumption of 1.5 / 1 Ton AC?

It’s chilling summer and most of us might be planning to purchase AC and doing internet research. But the main thing which comes to our mind is the power consumption of AC. As this have a significant effect on our pocket. This post outlines, EER (Energy Efficiency Ratio), ISEER (Indian Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio) and … Read more

What is Slip in Induction Motor?

Slip in Induction Motor is the relative speed between the rotating magnetic flux and rotor expressed in terms of per unit synchronous speed. It is a dimensionless quantity. The value of slip in induction motor is can never be zero. If Ns and Nr being the synchronous speed of rotating magnetic flux and rotor speed … Read more

Y Parameter of Two Port Network

Y parameter of two port network is a 2×2 admittance matrix. Since admittance is the ratio of circuit current and voltage, therefore this admittance matrix gives the relationship between the input and output current and voltage of the network. It is also known as short circuit admittance parameter. The Y parameter for a two port … Read more

Brushless Excitation System

Brushless Excitation System is a technology for providing the field current to the Synchronous Generator without using Slip Ring and Carbon Brushes. As this method of Excitation i.e. Brushless Excitation System do not use Carbon Brushes, therefore the losses because of contact resistance of carbon brushes is eliminated. Also, in case of initial start up … Read more
