Superposition theorem

Superposition theorem can be used to find the current or voltage in any circuit containing more than one independent sources. By using this method, we calculate the contribution of each…

Current Division rule

As we know, in a parallel circuit current divides into all branches. The current flow through each branch is inversely proportional to the resistance offered by each one them. The…

Electromechanical relays vs solid-state relays

Relays are electrically operated switching devices, used to gain control over processes and circuits. Based on their principle of operation they are classified into two types: Solid-state relays and electromechanical…

What is an arc chute?

When a circuit breaker interrupts high currents, an electric arc is generated. An electric arc is the discharge of electric current through gas or air. The conduction of electric charges…

High Leg delta connection

Power is transmitted over long distances at high voltage. In order to supply domestic and residential applications, it needs to be stepped down to 120V or 230V single phase. This…
