Advantage and Disadvantage of Outdoor Electrical Substation

In this post I will discuss about the advantage and disadvantage of outdoor electrical substation compared with indoor substation. Advantage of Outdoor Substation: Outdoor Electrical Substation is located in Outdoor that’s means there will be no roof top. This following advantage can be found by an outdoor substation. The main construction work will needed is much smaller if we compared with an indoor substation. Always less quantity of building or infrastructure is needed. Insulation cost for a switchgear and others Read More …

Current and Voltage Effects on Human Body

In my last post about Electrical safety I talked about the Electrical hazard and reason behind it. Now I will talk about the Current and Voltage Effect on Human Body. Let’s start with human body. Human skin resistance varied from 400 ohms for wet skin to 500000 ohm for dry skin. That’s means when you are wet then your body skin resistance will be 400 ohm and when your body skin is dry then your body resistance will be 500000 Read More …

Different Types of Cable Insulators

Electrical Cable can come with insulation or not. There are some type of over head transmission and distribution cable don’t have insulation on it because it stay up from ground level. But if a cable is passing through ground level and human and animal is crossing nearby then there is a big possibility that anyone can get Electrical Shock if the cable is not having insulation. Like cable insulation a cable insulator is also important equipments in power transmission and distributions Read More …
