What is Electricity?

What is electricity? How does electricity work? There are many forms of electricity:AC, DC, electrostatic, sparks, arcs, gas discharge and corona discharge, but all are variations of the same principle. This...
high voltage circuit breaker

High Voltage Circuit Breaker

A high voltage circuit breaker is an automatic device for stopping the flow of current in an electric circuit as a safety measure including damage caused by the excess current. Upon completion of...
magnetic switch

What Is a Magnetic Switch And What Are Its Applications?

A magnetic switch is an electrical switch that makes or breaks contacts in the presence of a magnetic field. That is, the switch remains actuated as long as a strong magnetic field...

What Is a MOSFET? | Basics for Beginners

A metal–oxide–semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET, MOS-FET, or MOS FET) is a field-effect transistor (FET with an insulated gate) where the voltage determines the conductivity of the device. It is used for...
