What is the Difference Between Neutral, Ground and Earth?

What is the Difference Between Neutral, Ground and Earth

The Main difference between Neutral, Ground and Earth? ‪To understand the difference between Neutral, Ground and Earth, we must understand the need of these things first. Neutral Neutral is return path for an AC circuit which is supposed to carry current in normal condition. This current may be because of many reasons, primarily because of phase current imbalance and some …

What is Motor Efficiency & How to improve it?

Basic Parts of the Motor

8+ Tips to Improve The Motor Efficiency Introduction: Motor Efficiency & How to improve it? Electric motor is a type of machine which converts electrical energy into mechanical energy using the interaction between magnetic field and current in its winding to produce/generate force in the motor. If we actually reverse this process then mechanical energy is converted into electrical energy …

Why Power Plant Capacity Rated in MW and not in MVA?

For the following reasons, a Power plant capacity rating may be expressed in MW instead of MVA. In a Generating station, the prime mover (Turbine) generates only and only Active Power. That’s why we rated a power plant capacity in MW instead of MVA. Its mean no matter how large your generator is, but it depends on the capacity of …

What is the difference between AC and DC Resistance & How to calculate it?

Resistance The property of a substance or material which oppose the flow of electricity through it is called resistance OR, Resistance is the ability of a circuit or element (which is called resistor) to oppose current. Examples of Resistors with the ability of high resistance are Wood, Air, Mica, Glass, Rubber, Tungsten etc. Unit of Resistance is “Ohm” and it is …

Norton’s Theorem. Easy Step by Step Procedure with Example (Pictorial Views)

Norton's Theorem. Easy Step by Step Procedure with Examples and solved problems

Norton’s Theorem Easy Step by Step Procedure with Example (Pictorial Views) This is another useful theorem to analyze electric circuits like Thevenin’s Theorem, which reduces linear, active circuits and complex networks into a simple equivalent circuit. The main difference between Thevenin’s theorem and Norton’s theorem is that, Thevenin’s theorem provides an equivalent voltage source and an equivalent series resistance, while …

Thevenin’s Theorem. Easy Step by Step Procedure with Example (Pictorial Views)

Thevenin's Theorem. Easy Step by Step Procedure with Example (Pictorial Views)

Thevenin’s Theorem Step by Step Procedure with Examples. A French Engineer, M.L Thevenin , made one of these quantum leaps in 1893. Thevenin’s Theorem is not by itself an analysis tool, but the basis for a very useful method of simplifying active circuits and complex networks because we can solve complex linear circuits and networks especially electronic networks easily and quickly. …
