## What is Harmonics in Power System,Generation,Effect

What is harmonics in power system? A power system harmonic is defined as a component of a periodic wave having a frequency that is an integral multiple of the fundamental power line frequency of 60 Hz. distortion in electrical current and…

## Suspension Type Insulator and advantages

Electrical Insulators are used in an overhead line to provide insulation to power conductor from ground and tower or supporting structure. Generally, insulators are connected to cross arm of supporting structure and power conductor pass through the clamp of the insulator. In this…

## Types of Lightning Arresters-Horn Gap, Rod Gap, Valve Type

There are different types of lightning arresters like Rod Gap Arrester, Horn Gap Arrester, Valve type, and expulsion type and they differ from each other only in construction details. but they operate on the same principle which is to provide…

## What is Lightning Arrester-Working Principle Diagram

Grounding wire running over the tower or substation provides good protection to the electrical system against direct lightning stroke but they fail to provide protection against traveling high voltage or current waves that reach to terminal equipment. The lightning arrester…

## Critical Disruptive Voltage & Visual Critical Voltage

Critical disruptive voltage is defined as the voltage at which complete disruption of the dielectric strength of air occurs. if the voltage increases above critical disruptive voltage corona occurs.  𝛿: air density correction factor  r: radius of conductor  d: distance of…

## Corona effect-Critical Disruptive Voltage & Factor Affecting

Corona effect (also known as Corona Discharge) is nothing but the ionization of air around the power conductor. The air around the power conductor has free electrons due to radioactivity and cosmic rays. As the potential between conductors increases potential gradient…

## What is Skin Effect? Definition Factors affecting

Definition: The non-uniform distribution of current through the given cross-section area of the conductor, when it operated on AC current is known as the Skin Effect. When DC current flows through the conductor it is distributed uniformly throughout the cross-section area…

## Electrostatic Precipitator- Construction, Working Principle

Electrostatic Precipitator also known as ESP is the leading and most effective technology used for removing solid dust particles from industrial flue gases. The electrostatic Precipitator consists of a large steel chamber and inside the chamber, an electrode system is…

## Types of Insulators-Pin Type Insulator, Suspension, Strain, Shackle

Types of insulators are used in an overhead transmission and distribution line to provide insulation to power conductors from the ground and tower or supporting structure. like Pin type of insulators, Suspension, and Strain type insulators. There are 5 types of insulators…

## Corona Power Loss-Calculation, Formula, Equation

When the potential difference between two conductors of a transmission line is raised beyond a certain limit, a point is reached when a violet glow appears around the conductor surface with a hissing noise and ozone gas smell this phenomenon…
