    When Edison’s system went into operation on September 4th 1882, it illuminated a set of 1000 light bulbs in front of The New York Times office, powered by the power station down the road. At this moment, Edison’s dream would quickly become a reality as large cities with power stations began adopting Edison’s DC electrical grid. However, it would take the work of Tesla and Westinghouse before the modern AC/DC current would be created. The alternating current could more easily be converted into…

  • Gas Turbine Theory

    Two factors are required for proper operation of a gas turbine. One is expressed by Newton’s third law. The other is the convergent-divergent process. Convergent means approaching nearer together, as the inner walls of a tube that is constricted. Divergent means moving away from each other, as the inner walls of a tube that flares outward. Bernoulli’s principle is used in this process. The venturi of the common automobile carburetor is a common example of Bernoulli’s principle and the…

  • Case Study: Direct Current (DC) Motors

    Direct Current (DC) motors Name: University 1.0 Introduction A Direct Current (DC) motor is one of the broader classification of electric motors which operate from a direct current. Nearly all mechanical devices applied in daily life activities are powered by electric motors. Motors transform electrical energy to mechanical energy, hence they are essential for energy conversions in electrical machines. All types of electrical motors are made up of a stationary field referred to a stator and…
