Energy Giants Turn to Sustainable Energy Developments

Energy Giants Turn to Sustainable Energy Developments

Thanks to Michael Faraday's work in the early 19th century, electricity has been generated at centralized facilities beginning in 1882, initially using coal and water power. In the past 135 years, other non-renewable fuels—oil, natural gas and nuclear—have joined coal...

What Are Line/Load Reactors?

What Are Line/Load Reactors?

Line/load reactors are inductors; coils of wire that oppose the flow of alternating current and limit the current that can flow through the circuits into which they are placed. They are used in two principal applications. Load reactors are generally used with motors...
