Blondel’s theorem | Power in Poly-Phase System

Statement Blondel’s theorem states that if a network is supplied through P conductors, the total power is measured by adding the readings of P wattmeters so arranged that a current element of a wattmeter is in each line and the corresponding voltage element is connected between that line and a common point. Note: If the … Read moreBlondel’s theorem | Power in Poly-Phase System

Wheatstone Bridge | Working Principle & Applications

A Wheatstone bridge is used for the accurate measurement of resistance. The Wheatstone bridge works on the principle of null deflection, i.e. the ratio of their resistances are equal, and no current flows through the galvanometer. The general arrangement of Wheatstone bridge circuit is shown in the fig. 1. It is a four arms bridge circuit … Read moreWheatstone Bridge | Working Principle & Applications
