Power distribution systems work to bring electric energy from the plant to the end consumer. This is done through large and complex networks that include cables, overhead lines, transformers, and other equipment. As electricity travels across this vast network, losses occur where energy is lost in the distribution network. If you compare the units of…

An outlet box is the termination point of wires or connections for electrical wiring or fitting. One basic principle that should already be observed is that wire connections should always be contained inside an outlet or electrical box. The same is true for switches and receptacles.  Doing so prevents accidents resulting from damage to the…

In practical application, transformers are used to deliver electric power from the power source or generators to the user. Transformers transfer electricity from one electrical circuit to another, through mutual electromagnetic induction. They work by increasing or decreasing alternating current voltage in circuits. Power of one voltage is transformed into the power of another voltage…

Also sometimes known as a surge protector, surge suppressor, or surge diverter, a surge protective device or SPD is designed to protect electrical devices or equipment from voltage spikes. If there is any unwanted voltage that goes past a certain threshold, the surge protector will block or short to ground the unwanted voltage. Having the…
