How does a Transformer work – Working Principle electrical engineering

Hey there guys, Paul here from In this video, we’re going to be looking at how transformers work. Now this follows on from our series on electrical engineering, so do check out the other videos if you’ve not done so already. Links are in the video description below. Coming up, we’ll be looking at […]

Three Phase Electricity Basics and Calculations electrical engineering

Hey there, guys. Paul here from In this video, we’re going to be learning more about three phase electricity. We’ll cover how three phases are generated, how we get two voltages from a three phase system, what do cycle and hertz mean, where the sine wave comes from, and how to calculate the voltages. […]

How do wind turbines generate electricity? – IN 60 SECONDS

How do offshore wind turbines generate electricity? You probably know that wind turbines produce electricity from wind. But how do they do it Let’s take a look at this particular offshore wind turbine. Sensors on top of the turbine measure wind speed and direction They signal the yaw-motors in which direction to turn in order […]

Transformers – How does electricity reach our home?

How does electricity reach our homes? It all starts from the power station, which gives a voltage of 20kV. But, to transmit this voltage over longer distances, it is stepped up (440kV) with the help of Step-up transformer. The transmission lines carry this voltage (440kV) to the substations or distribution stations, where the voltage gets […]

DIY Soldering Station

When it comes to creating electronic circuits on a piece of perfboard, you will always need a decent soldering iron. Now i’ve been using my Ersa i-con Pico soldering station for two years now and it still works perfectly fine. But there’s another popular soldering iron/station manufacturer called JBC which supposedly sells the best of […]

Easiest MOT Salvage Tutorial Pt.3

Welcome to Part 3 of my tutorial series on MOT salvaging, where I show you how to turn broken microwaves into cool projects. If you’ve just come across this video, obviously it’s part 3 so go watch parts one and two first or you’ll be lost. They explain how to tear down a microwave and […]

The Metal Melter

I’ve just modified this Microwave Oven Transformer into a dangerous little device. 800 amps of electrical current is about to be bad news for anything made of metal. Today I’m in the mood to melt some metal. This Microwave Oven Transformer used to be a dangerously high-voltage device, but I modified it so the voltage […]
