Temperature Monitoring Inside Electrical Switchboards.

Switchgear panels are used to control, protect and isolate electrical equipment, and high temperatures inside these panels can indicate a fault or failure. During the functioning stage, overheating conditions in electrical switchboards can occur due to some reasons such as overloaded circuits, unbalanced loads, and loose connections, which can reduce the lifespan of equipment and […]

What is transformer impedance?

A transformer’s primary and secondary windings have resistance and reactance, collectively referred to as impedance. The impedance opposes the flow of current when the transformer is connected to an AC power supply, causing a voltage drop across the windings.   When an AC voltage is applied to the primary winding, it generates a magnetic flux.
