  • Wheatstone Bridge Analysis

    Wheatstone bridge is a device used to measure unknown resistance by passing current through the resistor [1]. Wheatstone bridge is made up of a power source and galvanometer that joins the two-parallel circuits which contains two resistors each. It is very useful in finding small resistances and is used in various applications such as strain gages. The following figure shows the arrangement of a Wheatstone bridge. Figure 1: Arrangement of a Wheatstone Bridge [1] Importance of Wheatstone…

  • Zero Voltage Switching Case Study

    CHAPTER1 INTRODUCTION TO ZVT 1.1 What is ZVT? Zero voltage switching can best be defined as conventional square wave power conversion during the switch’s on-time with “resonant” switching transitions. For the most part, it can be considered as square wave power utilizing a constant off-time control which varies the conversion frequency, or on-time to maintain regulation of the output voltage. For a given unit of time, this method is similar to fixed frequency conversion which uses an adjustable…

  • Nikola Tesla Biography Essay

    1856. Being raised with advance knowledge of engineering and science, Tesla started his career with the emerging electric power industry in the early 1880’s for whom he worked for until the late 1880’s. His first significant achievement happens with AC or Alternating Current. He has owned the patents for the Alternating Current Induction Motor [2] and other Poly-phase alternating current patents. By the 1890’s Tesla had earned copious amounts of money. However, Tesla was a man with a thirst for…

  • Nikola Tesla's Greatest Invention

    physics at the Technical University of Graz, but he dropped out before his course was completed. While still living in Europe, he had the idea to design an alternating current motor, an invention which would lead him to New York City in 1884 to work for the famous Thomas Edison. Tesla has often been credited with discovering alternating current power in the first place, but it was actually first developed by Michael Faraday in the early 1800s. Tesla was inspired by, and made many…

  • Impact Of Technology On Society Essay

    Thomas Edison who, upon thinking about the light bulb decided that it would one day be possible to illuminate an entire city. The technology of creating light with electricity had existed since 1800 when Humphry Davis managed to create the first electric arc lamp by feeding electricity through carbon electrodes. While this did produce light, the system was extremely large and it burnt out quickly, resulting in a need to replenish the carbon electrodes frequently. The first improvement that was…

  • Invention Of The Telegraph Essay

    operator key down to complete the electric circuit of the battery,” (History). This action of pushing the operator key down sent electric signals across a wire to a receiver on the other end. Every system needed a key, a battery, wire and a line of poles between stations for the receiver. Charles Wheatstone and his peer developed a telegraph system with “five magnetic needles that could be pointed around a panel of letters and numbers by using an electric current,”…
