This article explains the measurement of three-phase power in star connected or delta connecter load using the wattmeter methods. The power in a three phase load can be measured by following methods: Three wattmeter method Two wattmeter method One wattmeter method The name of these methods indicates the number of wattmeters used in the measurement of … [Read more...] about Measurement of Three Phase Power | Wattmeter Methods
A current transformer (CT) is a type of transformer that is used to measure AC current. It produces an alternating current (AC) in its secondary which is proportional to the AC current in its primary. Current transformers, along with voltage or potential transformers are Instrument transformer. Current transformers are designed to provide a scaled-down replica of the current … [Read more...] about Current Transformer (CT) – Construction and Working Principle
In this post, we will look at the voltage and power equation of a dc motor and the condition for maximum power in a dc motor. Voltage Equation of a DC Motor The voltage V applied across the motor armature has to overcome the back emf Eb and supply the armature ohmic drop IaRa . This is known as voltage equation of a motor. Back EMF and Its Significance in DC … [Read more...] about Voltage and Power Equations of DC Motor | Condition of Maximum Power
All electrical installations and equipment comply with insulation resistance specifications so they can operate safely. Whether it involves the connection cables, the sectioning and protection equipment, or the motors and generators, the electrical conductors are insulated using materials with high electrical resistance in order to limit, as much as possible, the flow of … [Read more...] about Difference between Dielectric Testing & Insulation Resistance Measurement
