Electrical Bus bar: Types & Advantages

Electrical Bus bar is an important component in the installation of an electrical distribution system. It is used for collecting current from incoming terminals of a power system and distributing it to various outgoing terminals. It acts as a junction between incoming power and outgoing power. Before going into deep in concept, let us first … Read more

Economic Aspects of Power Generation

In this article, we will learn important terms in Economic Aspects of Power Generation. What is Load? A device which uses electrical energy is said to impose a load on the system. What is Connected Load? The sum of continuous ratings of all loads connected to the system is known as a connected load. What … Read more

What is Electrical Fault? Types, Causes & Effects

An electrical fault is a condition which can cause equipment failures (in transformers, transmission lines, alternators, busbars, etc.) and disturbs the normal working of the system. The faults can also lead to the death of humans, birds and animals along with equipment failure and electric power supply interruption. Insulation failure and conducting path failures are … Read more

Power System Protection | Components

Power System Protection is a branch of electrical engineering that deals with the protection of electrical equipment (or component) in a power system network by removing the faulty part. In a power system, there are various equipments such as alternators, busbar, transmission line, transformers, etc. connected in between the generation side and distribution side. All … Read more

Skin Effect in Conductors | Causes & Effects

The distribution of current over the entire cross-section of the conductor is uniform in case of a DC system. But there is an unequal distribution of current over the entire cross-section of the conductor in case of AC system. Here what Skin Effect arises. What is Skin Effect (SE)? When an AC Current flows through a conductor, … Read more

Proximity Effect In Conductors

In this article, we will learn Proximity effect that occur in conductors. What is Proximity Effect? Suppose two or more conductors carrying AC current are placed near each other. Each conductor is producing its varying magnetic field. When this varying magnetic field is linked with other current carrying conductors then the distribution of current in each … Read more
