The electrical design process is a methodical step-by-step process for solving a problem. Engineers use this process all the time for product development. What are some common electrical design aspects that need to be focused on in the process. What are the areas that we often overlook because we just know that this will work? What is electrical design? What is its process? and What specific details do we miss during the trip?

Technology is growing at an impressively exponential rate leaving past innovation as a distant memory.  Electrical design has evolved over the decades from using scratch paper, to draft schematics, to the use of CAD software. The original automobile was essentially a horse and carriage that transformed into a gas powered vehicle that travels at speeds that could never be achieved by horse.

Power Plant energy efficiency is vital to maintain minimal consumption rate within the facility. Energy efficiency is the effective means of optimally configuring in house control systems to use only power necessary without waste. This article goes into the concerns when developing a facility and how energy efficiency is not an easy task.

Vehicular electronics is an important aspect of transportation design engineering. Buses, trucks, motorcycle, and of course cars all have multiple components that interact concurrently to provide data and power throughout any vehicle. Modern vehicles use real-time data to operator and perform properly. These systems include steering, braking, HVAC, engine management, and much more. Designing for these systems takes great attention to detail as many developers have concurrent forms of engineering that require multiple parties to design and manufacture the components separately. Lets use take a look at some of the operations an automotive engineer has to deal with and when setting up and designing electronic placement and how this can be improved upon.

Energy Transmission System Design Considerations and Constraints

Posted by Lucas Leão Feb 16, 2016

Electric energy transmission from power plants to substation centers are growing with increasing power demand today. As transmission systems expand over the decades, excess capacity available on transmission lines seems to be consumed with system growth, or with transmission users developing more economical plans to meet the system demand. The expansion leads to more consumption which promotes more towards the expansion. Understanding the considerations and constraints involved with designing transmission systems will give engineers insight into how this affects operations and reliability.

Most Common Challenges in Power Plant Electrical Design

Power house, power station, and electrical generation plant are all common names used by power plants. Power plants are essential to everyday life modern life. There would be no television, no internet, no electricity, and no lights. Power generation has been around since the late 1800’s, were water from a lake was used to power Siemens dynamos. The electricity supplied power to lights, heating, produced hot water, ran an elevator as well as labor-saving devices and farm buildings.
