## What Does Multimeter Mean?

What is a Multimeter? An electronic device called a multimeter is used to measure circuit resistance, amps, and voltage. Engineers can use multimeters to check voltage, resistance, and electrical current levels by connecting two leads to various electrical system components. This device is also sometimes referred to as a volt-ohm metre or volt-ohm-milliampere (VOM). The …

## What is Ammeter?

Ammeter: The term “ammeter” refers to an instrument or device used to measure current. The current is measured in amperes. As a result, this instrument is known as an ammeter or ampere metre and measures current flow in amperes. Although this device’s internal resistance is “0,” it still has some internal resistance. Depending on the …

## What is Voltmeter and explain its features

What is Voltmeter? The device used to measure the electric potential difference between two points in an electric circuit is called a voltmeter. It is linked simultaneously. It typically has a high resistance such that it uses very low circuit current. Voltmeters can be used to measure sinusoidal AC voltages as well as DC voltage, however …

## WHAT IS ELECTROMAGNETIC RELAY & EXPLAIN ITS FUNCTION

What is Electromagnetic Relay? Relays that work on the principle of electromagnetic attraction are known as electromagnetic relays. The magnet is used to create a magnetic field, making it a particular kind of magnetic switch. The switch is then opened and closed using the magnetic field, and a mechanical action is subsequently carried out. It …

## Difference Between NO and NC Contacts

Logic is constructed based on the open or closed state of switches, sensors, or relays in every control circuit and automation system. Thus, understanding the NO/NC notion is essential. The phrases “normally open” (NO) and “normally closed” (NC) are used to describe the states that switches, sensors, or relay contacts are in when their coils …

## What is Capacitive Voltage Transformer?

CVT Capacitive Voltage Transformer is a step-down transformer that changes high voltage into low voltage. Capacitor Voltage Transformers transform transmission class voltages into uniformly low, readily measured values that are utilised for high voltage system metering, protection, and control. Normally, it is impossible to detect the line voltage or current in a high voltage system. …

## How does the Avalanche Diode works?

What is an Avalanche diode? A reverse breakdown region-operating diode is referred to as an avalanche diode. The fundamental purpose of these diodes is to break precisely at a reverse voltage without being damaged. Once these diodes are linked in series, they can be used in high voltage, inductive, protective circuits. An avalanche diode will …

## What is the purpose of Wave Trapper in Power System?

Wave Trapper: A wave trap is an interference positioned on the transmission line that stops a high-frequency waveform from entering a low-frequency device. A cylindrical shape characterises the wave trap. Line trap and High-frequency stopper are some other names for wave traps (2Khz to 250Khz). We can describe the wave trap as a low pass …

## How Change-Over Switch Works?

What is Changeover Switch? A switch used to transfer the source of power supply to an electrical load is known as a changeover switch. Changeover switches are available in a variety of forms. It is divided into two types based on the operation: 1. Manual 2. Automatic The transfer switch is also known as the …
