Transformers are one of the most important components of an electrical power system and protecting them is an essential requirement.

The protection schemes used for a transformer depend upon the rating and application of the transformer. For example, a power transformer having a higher voltage and power rating than a distribution transformer will need further means of protection such as differential protection, overcurrent protection, over-fluxing protection and protection against inter-turn faults while a distribution transformer can be protected by MCCBs and MV fuses alone.

Power transformers need extra protection because of their high rating and sensitivity of their location in…


In the vast system of electrical energy transmission there are many devices and components that are used to ensure safety of human life and devices, reliability, and efficient transmission of electricity. On the contrary, we see many losses and factors that decrease the efficiency of the system for which we take many precautions. One of such factors is the Ferranti Effect in the transmission line, which causes the receiving end voltage to be increased.

Would this condition of increased voltage be beneficial to our system and load or it is harmful for the system? …


Electricity with a bad quality is dangerous and uneconomical at both utility and consumer end. There is a big need to focus on the quality of power being supplied to the loads. Read more as we cover causes of poor power quality, different measuring parameters, power quality standards and various techniques to improve the power quality.

Power quality is the ability of a power grid to supply power to the consumers efficiently and it also expresses the ability of an equipment to consume the power being supplied to it. …


We are excited to share with you the launch of PSE Vlog series. In this blog we will be going over all the things that we covered in our brand-new series. We will briefly discuss the introduction of this vlog, about the instructor, benefits that you might get, from where you will find it, and making sure that you are ready to go.

What is PSE VLOG?

PSE VLOG is the Power Systems Engineering Video Blog essentially, in which we are going to talk about all sorts of various power system engineering studies and commentary. We will overview the different blogs written by AllumiaX…


On May 5, we will be releasing our new Power Systems Engineering VLOG series. In this series, our Engineering Manager, Abdur Rehman, will be explaining different concepts dealt with in power system studies. He will be sharing his expertise and perspective, honed by years of experience within the field to help you understand and truly grasp the different aspects within power system studies.


Motors are the fundamental loads in an electrical power system, both at commercial and industrial level. Some applications of motors include fans, vehicles, power tools, turbines, blowers, ships and compressors. Along with the ease, there are issues that are needed to be addressed to ensure the reliable operation of a power system. The following problems occur when a motor starts:

We will be discussing the problems that arise with motor starting and complications associated with them. …


Check our resources page where you will learn how to prepare an Arc Flash Analysis data collection using our spreadsheet. Use our electrical calculators to help you get the right values. You will also find electrical blogs with different categories and FAQs related to short circuit and arc flash studies.

electric substations, how do they work?

The challenges associated with construction, operation, and maintenance of the power grid are often complicated. Many of those challenges are overcome at the facility end which, at first glance, often look like a chaotic and dangerous mess of wires and equipment, but actually serves a number of essential roles in electrical grid, is the SUBSTATION.

Electrical substations have an utmost importance in electric distribution facility, converts AC voltages from one level to another level or change nature of supply voltage i.e., from AC to DC or vice versa. The general layout of a substation consists of conductors that run along…


Snubber Circuit Analysis

Many of the circuit components may fail due to the over voltage, overheating, over current or unnecessary change in voltage & current. For the over-current situations, the components can be protected by using fuses at specific positions. Similarly, for overheating, heat sinks, and fans are used to push the excess heat away from the unwanted area. Although switching the load on and off is a common practice in the large-scale power distribution facilities however in some situations, the switching off/on may result in generating a transient condition leading to disturbance in the system’s stability.

For more information on Transients, refer…
