What is Armature Winding and Types of Armature Winding

Armature Winding: The armature winding is the main current-carrying winding in which the electromotive force or counter-emf of rotation is induced. The current in the armature winding is known as the armature current. The location of the winding depends upon the type of machine. Generally there are two types of Armature winding in the DC…

What is reactor and what are the types of reactor

What is Reactor: A reactor is a coil which has large number of turns and whose ohmic resistance value is much greater. Reactors are used to limit the short circuit currents which can cause damage to the equipment’s of the power system. The additional reactance added in series with the system for protection, are called…

Difference between Bonding and Grounding

Bonding vs Grounding Bonding is the lasting joining of metallic pieces to form a conducting path which ensures safe electrical continuity. Bonding is generally done as protection from electrical shocks. Any intentional or accidental connection between an electrical circuit or instrument and the earth is known as Grounding. Grounding ensures that all metal parts of…

Difference Between Circuit breaker and Isolator

An isolator is a disconnecting switch which operates under off load condition. It isolates the part of the circuit in which the fault takes place from the main supply. It is used in high voltage devices such as transformers, etc. Isolators block the DC signals and allow the AC signals to pass. Circuit Breaker is…

Ac or DC current

What’s the Difference Between AC and DC Electric Shocks?

Difference between AC and DC Current An AC current is alternating in nature and follows a sine curve. It is continuously changing direction and passing through zero to a maximum positive value and then to a maximum negative value. The voltage of an AC current is a RMS or root mean square value, and the…
