Aluminium Conductor Steel Rein-Forced (ACSR)

In my last post, I talked about the various types of the electrical cable conductor. Now I will discuss (ACSR) Aluminium Conductor Steel Rein-Forced. So, let’s go. Aluminium Conductor Steel Rein-Forced: (ACSR) or Aluminium Conductor Steel Rein-Forced consist of a core of galvanized steel strand and its surrounded by a number of Aluminium strands. Normally the steel conductors are used for galvanized in order to prevent any kind of rusting and electrolytic corrosion. The cross section of the two metals Read More …

Various Types of Electrical Cable Conductor

Without a Conductor, it’s not an Electrical Cable. In the market, you will find different types of electrical cable with very few types of conductors. In this post, we will learn Various Types of Electrical Cable Conductor. What is Electrical Conductor: The material, which resists a few portions of current flow known as conducting material. But when it used in a bare strand or solid material then its called conductor. Mainly conducting material used for transmission or the distribution of electric Read More …

Electrical Cable Classification and Specification

First of all, I want to tell you why you need to know about the electrical cable classification and specification? OK, let’s consider you are an electrical engineer or a technician and it means you are on work. When you are handling that kind of responsibility then you may Read More …

What is Cable Insulation and Type of Insulation?

My last post was about what are electrical cable and its type? Today I will discuss cable insulation type. So let’s go. First of all Cable Insulation: The three most commonly available materials are used as insulation for any kind of power cable Tape insulation such as impregnated paper or varnish paper, Rubber or rubber-like Synthetic compounds such as Silicone rubber, butyl rubber, and oil-based rubber. Thermo-plastics such as Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and Crosslinked poly ethylene’s (XLPE). Now come to the Read More …

What is Electrical Safety, Safe Voltage and Current for Human Body?

When you are an Electrical Engineer or your work is related to electricity then you must know some basics about electrical safety. Because life is a very important subject in the world. In this post, I will explain some about electrical safety that can really save you while you are working. Electrical Safety: Yes, water flow we can see it. Air for can feel it but the flow of current through conductor we cannot see. This is why electricity is Read More …

What are Electrical Cables and its Types?

Electrical Cable is a common element in electrical work. In this post, we will learn What are Electrical Cables and its Types? What is Electrical Cable? The conductor which is normally insulated by the insulating material is known as cable. Generally, cable is used for transmission and distribution of electric power by under the ground system. Underground cables are used to transmission and distribution of electric power, where it becomes impracticable to make use of overhead construction. Such location is maybe Read More …
