gfci circuit breakers

The NEC requires that ground-fault circuit interrupters (GFCI CIRCUIT BREAKERS ) be installed in many different rooms and locations in both public and private buildings. They are now required in bathrooms, kitchens, appliance rooms or spaces, and garages. In addition, they are required in basements, near swimming pools, hot tubs, or fountains, and in outdoor …

underground distribution systems

A well-designed underground distribution systems must provide for anticipated load growth that can be accommodated economically. This means that provisions must be made to furnish electrical service to new as well as existing customers. Both overhead and underground distribution systems have existed in large metropolitan areas for many years, but underground distribution was rarely used …

secondary distribution system

The secondary distribution system is that part of the electrical power system between the primary system and the customer’s service entrance. This system includes distribution transformers, secondary circuits (secondary mains), customer services (consumer drops), and watthour meters to measure customer power consumption. Secondary voltages are provided by distribution transformers that are connected to the primary …

distribution substations

Distribution substations serve a wide range of private and public customers in distributing electric power. They can be shareholder, cooperatively, privately, and government owned. All substations contain power transformers and the voltage-regulating apparatus required for converting the high incoming subtransmission voltages to lower primary system voltages and maintaining them within specified voltage tolerances. Those voltages, …

transformers

ransformer is a static electrical component with no moving parts that is used for stepping voltage up or down or isolating one circuit from another. Transformers have the ability to convert low-voltage, high-current AC to high-voltage, low-current AC, or vice versa, with minimal energy losses. Minimizing energy losses is critical in all power generation, transmission, …

hydroelectric power generation

hydroelectric power generation provides about 96 percent of the renewable energy in the United States. Other renewable resources include geothermal, wave power, tidal power, wind power, and solar power. Hydroelectric power plants do not use up resources to create electricity nor do they pollute the air, land, or water, as other power plants may. Hydroelectric …
