The Class 1E definition is found in IEEE 308. It is associated with electrical power systems found in nuclear power plants.
Mod package development is a daily reality for engineers working in the nuclear power industry. The earlier you understand the five-point structure that governs them, the quicker your skills and insight will increase. Continue reading “The five-point mod package development philosophy”
Doing this should really add a punch to your writing style. It also helps you eliminate needless words . . . . Continue reading “Improve your technical writing. Avoid the passive voice.”
One segment of electrical engineering in the nuclear power industry that you may find intriguing as an electrical engineer is instrumentation and controls, or “I&C” as it’s known. Though largely electrical in nature, I&C is a combination of mechanical and electrical engineering . . . . Continue reading “I&C Engineer – Instrumentation and Controls”
Background research is crucial to developing any new project or mod package. Here are some tips specifically tailored to electrical engineers . . . .
“Redundant” means having a second source of power or piece of equipment that acts as a backup in case the first fails to operate properly. . . .
Here are two basic concepts that should be understood by every electrical engineer in the nuclear power industry: redundancy and diversity. They are closely related, but not the same thing . . . .
Environmental qualification has to do with Class 1E equipment installed in a harsh environment. But it may not be as intuitive as it at first appears . . . .
