What Are The Different Types of Liquid Cooling?

What Are The Different Types of Liquid Cooling?

Due to higher densities, specific heat capacities, and thermal conductivities, liquids are generally much better cooling agents than gases. Compared to air, water has a heat carrying capacity 3,500 times higher than that of air, and a thermal conductivity 24 times...

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...

The Basics of Sine Wave Filters

The Basics of Sine Wave Filters

Motors that operate on alternating current need special power supplies that can deliver power to start and stop the motor smoothly. For example, a motor driving a large fan used in an HVAC system would put undue stress on the mechanical parts of the fan if it were to...
