It’s a known fact that we humans use a lot of energy and we don’t even use it responsibly. But, here’s something interesting, even if we did manage our energy use, we’d still be wasting a lot of the energy. In fact, all that wasted energy is released in the form of heat and that’s

The Importance of Renewable Energy

Monday, 22 January 2018 by

Renewable energy is a term that we’ve all come across. But, now, it’s pretty much the only thing we keep hearing.  You see, renewable energy is a big deal today and as time passes, it’s only going to become a bigger deal. So, what is renewable energy? Well, renewable energy refers to the energy derived

Possible Causes of Voltage Fluctuation

Thursday, 04 January 2018 by

For the most part, almost all of us enjoy a steady flow of electricity, whether we’re at home or at the workplace. However, sometimes, there’s bound to be a few issues. A voltage fluctuation is one such issue. What is a voltage fluctuation you ask? Well, a voltage fluctuation is nothing but random and repeated

Anything to do with electricity or electrical systems can be super confusing. Well, that shouldn’t come as a surprise because it is, after all, a fairly complex field. Just hearing some of the terms used in connection with electricity or energy can make you go “huh?!”. In this blog, we are specifically going to discuss

The electrical system in your building has one key job to carry out, which is to power all the electrical equipment such as the HVAC system, the machinery, and the lights. However, things don’t always go as planned. Your electrical system is simply a machine at the end of the day and it’s likely to

When looking to develop a proper testing and maintenance schedule for low voltage circuit breakers there is only two options; primary current injection testing or secondary current injection testing. Proper maintenance is essential for power circuit breaker reliability and safety. The advantages and disadvantages of each testing method will be described below. Primary Current Injection

Modeling Earth as a Rotating Solenoid Coil Greg Poole Electrical Power Engineer Pilot Hill, CA USA Abstract—Presented in this manuscript are conventional electrical engineering tools to model the earth as a rotating electrical machine. Calculations using known parameters of the earth and measured field data has resulted in new understanding of the earth’s electrical system

Benjamin Franklin’s Electric Motor

Wednesday, 04 October 2017 by

Benjamin Franklin (1706-1790) was not only a scientist, but also an engineer. More than a decade before James Watt invented his improved steam engine and launched the industrial revolution in England, Benjamin Franklin devised a working electric motor. Electrical technology in Franklin’s day consisted mainly of scientific instruments. By 1745, electrical scientists exploring the nature of

At long last, I get to blog about the paper that first piqued my interest about the research of Michael Faraday!  If you haven’t been following my Faraday posts, let me give a quick recap: Michael Faraday (1791-1867) was one of the greatest experimental physicists of all time, and the discoverer of some of the most important

Safety In general, any outdoor activity in bad weather constitutes a risk and should not be performed without a thorough risk assessment and appropriate authorization. A severe risk is posed by lightning. Doble Engineering does not recommend testing in any situation where lightning is a present or an imminent threat. Equipment Status and Motivation for
