What is An Electrical Transformer?

An electrical transformer is a machine that transfers electrical energy from one circuit to another via electromagnetic induction without changing the frequency.  It is a vital device in power transmission that links the generating stations and the users. A transformer comprises a pair of coils, wound around a laminated magnetic core. The winding that supplies … Read more

What is a Molded Case Circuit Breaker?

A molded case circuit breaker (MCCB) is a type of breaker that protects electrical circuits from overcurrents arising from circuit overload, short circuits, or faulty wiring. They are almost the same as the Miniature circuit breaker (MCB) as they do the same work. However, MCCB is more advanced. It has a higher current rating of … Read more

What is an SF6 Circuit Breaker?

An SF6 circuit breaker is an extinguisher that uses sulfur hexafluoride gas to cool and quench the arc. It is the type of circuit breaker used to protect electrical grids, power stations, and distribution systems. Sulfur hexafluoride gases have strong electronegativity and insulating properties, making them a better option than air and oil circuit breakers. … Read more
