The use of computers in the monitoring process
Very often in electrical engineering they used different computer programs. They are used not only for the design of electrical networks in even the smallest details, but also makes using them you can monitor the status of installations already in operation. Thanks to computer programs monitor the status of the electrical system has become almost a snap. Hold install the software with specific functions allows, for example, to measure the resistance of the electrical installations and other properties and measured in a direct way would have to be carried out in a more complicated formula.
Electric power is the product of two quantities: current and voltage. These two quantities can vary with respect to time (AC power) or can be kept at constant levels (DC power).
Most refrigerators, air conditioners, pumps and industrial machinery use AC power whereas most computers and digital equipment use DC power (the digital devices you plug into the mains typically have an internal or external power adapter to convert from AC to DC power). AC power has the advantage of being easy to transform between voltages and is able to be generated and utilised by brushless machinery. DC power remains the only practical choice in digital systems and can be more economical to transmit over long distances at very high voltages (see HVDC).1415
The ability to easily transform the voltage of AC power is important for two reasons: Firstly, power can be transmitted over long distances with less loss at higher voltages. So in power systems where generation is distant from the load, it is desirable to step-up (increase) the voltage of power at the generation point and then step-down (decrease) the voltage near the load. Secondly, it is often more economical to install turbines that produce higher voltages than would be used by most appliances, so the ability to easily transform voltages means this mismatch between voltages can be easily managed.14
Solid state devices, which are products of the semiconductor revolution, make it possible to transform DC power to different voltages, build brushless DC machines and convert between AC and DC power. Nevertheless devices utilising solid state technology are often more expensive than their traditional counterparts, so AC power remains in widespread use.
Employment in the construction electrician home
When it comes to houses, many electrical work is needed at the stage of construction. At the appropriate time work is carried out in respect of manual excavation in which the wires are subsequently stacked. Then, when the walls have been rebuilt there is a need to distribute the system throughout the house. He then are assembled separately, and all kinds of electrical outlets, of which the inhabitants of the house will later use. Of course, they are responsible for bringing the electrical system to the possibility of exploitation. Often electricians are also involved in installing electrical systems, such as intercom systems, which are quite useful, especially when dealing with a compact architecture.
